This post relates back to early March when I wrote about the inefficient and environmentally insensitive ketchup packets that the Heinz company has made for nearly half a century. Well, as someone pointed out, there was good news on the horizon as Heinz had just announced they were coming up with the first redesign of the traditional ketchup packet in 42 years. This was music to my ears.
Kel and I don't stop for fast food too often, other than when we make the trip up to Boston, but last night after I picked her up from her bi-weekly NYC trip we were trying to figure out what to do for supper. For some odd reason Kel suggested Chick-fil-A and it was on. We made a B-line to the place as we were ravenous. After we ordered we turned around to grab some napkins, straws, and ketchup when we realized that they had some of the new packets on hand. I was excited!...probably more so than I should have been. In any event..we sat down and gave the new design a test drive.
It was great. you get 3x the amount of ketchup you normally get and it's already in a nice little dipping cup. More ketchup, less packaging waste. Me likes!
p.s. - Hey Chick-fil-A, what's the story with still using styrofoam cups? Welcome to 2011!
