New from Melinda's: Black Pepper Ketchup

Melinda's Black Pepper Ketchup
Ketchup often gets a bad rap--and often deservedly so. Most supermarket ketchups taste more like sugar than tomatoes and are made with  "questionable" ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup. It's no wonder so many people either outgrow their childhood love of ketchup, or guiltily cling to it in private as they discover other condiments with greater depth of flavor and higher-quality ingredients.

If you've been a "closet" ketchup lover like me, secretly longing for a ketchup that would satisfy your craving for sweet-tangy tomato flavor but with a richer, more developed flavor and healthier ingredients, Melinda's Black Pepper Ketchup is for you.

This ketchup actually tastes like real tomatoes, isn't cloyingly over-sweetened with high-fructose corn-syrup, and finishes with zippy zest.  Like all other Melinda's Ketchups, her black pepper ketchup is all-natural and Kosher, so you know it's wholesome and better for you than the mass-produced ketchups from the grocery store. But just as importantly, this ketchup tastes so good you won't be ashamed to pour it on your scrambled eggs, hash browns, burgers, fries, hot dogs or other foods.

Naturally sweetened with glucose instead of HFCS, Melinda's Black Pepper Ketchup displays a refreshingly grown-up balance of sweetness and spice, with savory ingredients like onions and garlic, a tangy counterpoint provided by vinegar and lime, and a pleasantly peppery bite that sparks your taste buds without burning. In addition to serving all your tomato-condiment needs, Melinda's Black Pepper Ketchup will prove indispensable in family favorites like meatloaf, sloppy joes, homemade barbecue sauces, American goulash and other recipes.

Buy Melinda's Black Pepper Ketchup while it's on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, and experience what ordinary ketchup wishes it could grow up to be.

Zestfully yours,
