    After 40 years, H.J. Heinz Co. is playing catch-up with the design of the beloved yet frustrating ketchup packet, making it bigger and easier to open.

    The company Thursday unveiled the Heinz Dip & Squeeze for restaurants. The cuplike container -- the first major ketchup packet design change in 42 years -- gives users a choice of peeling back a lid for dipping or tearing off a tip to squeeze onto foods. It holds more than three times the amount of a traditional packet.



    Heinz also announced a 15-percent reduction in sodium across its core ketchup line and the launch of ketchup made with sugar instead of high fructose corn sweetener.

    Yeah, but BK still will only give you two packets when you get a large order of fries at the drive-through.

    Why is this in the EOTWAWKI Forum? This seems like a good idea to me.

    Because it has taken Poli years to figure out how to use the old ketchup packs. :D

    He's afraid he'll starve.

    Hey, I think I remember that Poli claims that he doesn't even have to use condiments.

    Is it true what they say, small hands = small condiments?

    I was going to move it to the lounge, but I thought I'd give Poli the benefit of the doubt. After all Heinz is a big name in Pittsburgh.
