Today I feel a glimmer of what it must have felt as a person when Prometheus brought fire down from Mount Olympus to the world, to be in King Ferdinand’s court as Columbus brought back spices from the new world or to be on the other end of a call from Alexander Gram Bell. The future has become a lot brighter, especially for all the Texans who have relocated out of the state. Today, April 23, 2013, is the day that Whataburger and HEB have partnered together to sell their classic Fancy Ketchup and Spicy Ketchup in stores.
I thought that this might be a late April Fool’s joke, but then I started seeing my Twitter stream and Facebook wall flooded with updates to this momentous occasion. To top it off, it appears that the once “limited batch” spicy ketchup is here to stay! My taste buds are tingling at this thought.
No longer will Texans have to put up with second rate ketchup as they leave the borders of this great state. No longer will a fry have to be consumed with a second rate sauce. No longer will Heinz control the condiment world. Today, Whataburger has given all of Texas and each Texan a great gift.
Shoutout to fellow Whataburger Ketchup lover Troy Swanson who alerted me to this news by tweeting out a link to the SA Business Journal:
