The Internet Is Very Concerned About The Newest Version Of Ketchup, And We Are Too

Have you ever been enjoying a helping of ketchup and thought to yourself, “Goodness, I wish this tasted more like plastic and less like ketchup”? Oh, you haven’t? Well, apparently, one new condiment startup seems to be under the impression that people are simply dissatisfied with their standard ketchup consumption options.

Bo’s Original Slice of Sauce™ is championing a new kind of ketchup, according to their Kickstarter campaign: specifically, the kind that you can place on your sandwiches in slice form.

Apparently, the benefit to ketchup in slices is that the product is “no mess,” “needs no refrigeration,” and is considered to be “non-GMO, gluten-free, all-natural with no artificial flavors, preservatives, or high-fructose corn syrup.”

But, that also means that it looks like this:

People are, understandably, a little offended by the idea.

I mean, do we really need a savory condiment that feels like biting into fruit leather? I can’t imagine a less appetizing consistency.

Like, couldn’t you just put a damn tomato on there??

There’s something inherently gross about the concept of ketchup with a gummy, semi-solid texture.

Some people feel that this development is a sure sign of the end times.

In addition to the gross-out factor, the idea is also not terribly eco-friendly — nor is it terribly efficient for, say, dipping fries (i.e., the main reason to be eating ketchup in the first place).

Despite all of the skepticism, Slice of Sauce™ has already exceeded their $15,000 goal on Kickstarter.

So, like it or not, you may very well be able to pass judgment on the squares of sliced ketchup very soon — or, in my case, avoid them entirely.
