    There’s a new condiment from Heinz hitting shelves. 

    Pickle Ketchup, which combines the tangy and savory flavor of pickles with its classic ketchup,  was inspired by the classic pairing of ketchup and pickles on hamburgers and hot dogs. 

    “Increased desire for tasty, yet unexpected condiments has served as our innovation north star for the last several years,” said Katie Peterson, director of Heinz Innovation at The Kraft Heinz Company. “The current pickle craze in America mirrors the irrational love Heinz fans have for the brand, so it only made sense for our newest ketchup to blend these two beloved tastes together.” 

    Heinz Pickle Ketchup will begin rolling out on retail shelves beginning in 2024. It is currently being distributed across select retailers in the United Kingdom.
