Launching this week, these limited-edition ketchup-flavored ice pops — called a "Frenchsicle" — are (sadly) only available in Canada, but that doesn't mean they can't pique our interested down here in...

    Local Los Angeles government officials are putting a halt to climate change by restricting the distribution of ketchup packets, Fox News reported. A recently finalized ordinance would restrict restaurants with 26 or more employees from providing ketchup and mustard packets with a customer’s meal. From here on out, customers must request their condiments. The ordinance will apply to restaurants by April of 2022. “If we are to overcome the extreme climate challenges we face, we will have to alter or otherwise transform all our habits relating to fossil fuel products, including plastics, and our essential natural resources, like forests,” said...

    LONDON (AP) — U.S. climate envoy John Kerry called on China to join America in urgently cutting greenhouse gas emissions and described the international alliances that rebuilt Europe after World War II as a model for fighting against climate change. Kerry challenged global leaders to accelerate the actions needed to curb rising temperatures and pull the world back from the edge of the abyss. “Allies, partners, competitors and even adversaries” must work together, he said during a speech at London’s Kew Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage site where scientists are working to protect plants from global warming. “The climate crisis...

The fast food joint, headquartered in Georgia, sent customers nationwide an email Monday declaring that customers will now get just one sauce per entrée, two per meal and three per order of 30-count nuggets, according to KSL.
  • Why is the COVID-19 pandemic causing a ketchup shortage?

    ABC7 News ^ | April 7, 2021 | Staff
    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shortage of one of America's favorite condiments: ketchup. Restaurants have relied heavily on takeout orders to survive during the pandemic, which has caused a need for more ketchup packets. But once those started running low, some eateries began pouring out bulk ketchup into individual cups. The Wall Street Journal reports that low inventory of ketchup is hitting mom-and-pop restaurants as well as chains like Texas Roadhouse. According to the restaurant-business platform "Plate IQ," the ketchup shortage has caused packet prices to rise 13% since January 2020. USA Today reports that Heinz is working to...

    Supply chain problems are reaching into a far corner of the business universe: Ketchup packets. After enduring a year of closures, employee safety fears and start-stop openings, many American restaurants are now facing a nationwide ketchup shortage. Restaurants are trying to secure the tabletop staple after Covid-19 upended the condiment world order. Managers are using generic versions, pouring out bulk ketchup into individual cups and hitting the aisles of Costco for substitutes. “We’ve been hunting high and low,” said Chris Fuselier, owner of Denver-based Blake Street Tavern, who has struggled to keep ketchup in stock for much of this year....

Schweizer, appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, said that former Hunter Biden business partner Bevan Cooney provided 26,000 emails to him—the first of which were published late last week in a Breitbart News exclusive investigation by Schweizer and author Seamus Bruner. Cooney is currently serving a sentence in federal prison due to his conviction over financial deals he made connected to Hunter Biden...

    WASHINGTON - Former Secretary of State John Kerry charged Thursday that the Trump administration was using the coronavirus pandemic as a cover to weaken key environmental regulations that will “kill more Americans.” “It’s a tragedy. It’s stupid. It’s absolutely counterproductive,” Kerry said during an interview on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast when asked about the Trump administration’s controversial decision that day to loosen rules on the release of mercury and other toxic chemicals from coal and oil-fired power plants. “George Orwell never conceived of quite such a topsy-turvy situation,” he added. “And I don’t think anybody’s ever dreamt we’d have a...

    MADRID (Reuters) - The world's richest nations are failing to "behave like adults" and act firmly enough to meet global warming targets set in the Paris climate accord, former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday. Kerry, who served as the top U.S. diplomat under President Barack Obama and was a leading player in brokering the Paris Agreement in 2015, said the G20 nations are lagging behind on emission reduction plans and financial pledges to poor countries instead of setting a high bar for global climate action. "The burden falls largely on the G20 to behave like adults,...

McCormack and Messing deny that their attempt to create a blacklist would actually amount to a blacklist. Because the topic of blacklists has again been in the news, Pat Sajak thought he’d get in on the action:

    Hold the mustard. A Florida man was arrested and charged with domestic battery after he reportedly poured ketchup over his sleeping girlfriend, who he believed was having an affair. Peter Wagman, 37 had been dating his 41-year-old girlfriend, who has not been named, for 11 years.

Investigators were called to the couple's Pinellas Park residence where they found Wagman's girlfriend covered in ketchup. According...

Kerry was at first hesitant to answer the question, saying Trump "doesn't take any of this seriously.” “He doesn’t have an ability to have that kind of conversation,” Kerry said after debating whether to answer or...
  • Is Ketchup the Perfect Complement to the American Diet?

    Ketchup is arguably the United States’ most ubiquitous condiment. Ninety-seven percent of Americans have a ketchup bottle in the fridge, usually Heinz, and we buy some 10 billion ounces of the red stuff annually—almost three bottles per person per year. We purportedly spend more money on salsa, but in terms of sheer volume ketchup comes out on top. Bright red in color, tangy, sweet, salty, and replete with a “meaty,” tomato-ey umami hit, ketchup provides accents of color and flavoring, as well as a smell and texture that is familiar and comforting. It’s the perfect complement to the American diet:...

    An article in the Yale Daily News today gives us more insight into the life of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And boy, is it exciting stuff. Kavanaugh attended Yale Law School from ‘87 to ‘90, during which time, according to classmates, he enjoyed playing devil’s advocate in conversations with his black friend, eating pasta with ketchup, and looking down his nose at friends who enjoyed watching Jeopardy. What a fun dude. His friends also remember his painfully dull taste in food. [W]hen it came to food, the future Supreme Court pick found hardly anything palatable, Christmas said. Kavanaugh was...

    DOES Louisiana hot sauce, a principal ingredient in the spicy New Orleans cocktail sauce commonly served with raw shellfish, kill certain bacteria found in raw oysters? The answer is yes, at least in the laboratory, researchers said in a preliminary report at a national scientific meeting on microbes and antibiotics yesterday. Principal ingredients of the traditional New Orleans cocktail sauce were found to kill a rare but sometimes fatal bacteria called Vibrio vulnificus. Dr. Sanders said that he saw his first case of V. vulnificus infection 10 years ago and that his interest in studying the sauces arose from lectures...
