  • I didn't see their copycat out there until Whataburger) The flavor of the product itself also delivers exactly what it promises, you will feel the heat (which can best be described in my opinion like good ketchup-meets-generic-brand-Tabasco)
  • While it's certainly not habenero five-alarm-total-destruction to your tongue, I also wouldn't recommend going full-bore squeeze-happy with this ketchup and simultaneously topping your burger with jalapenos either, either/or is good enough
  • At around $4-6 a bottle (standard size, price will vary a littler whether you get it at Walmart, online, or from another grocer) but I think it's a good buy

      Yep, it’s spicy…and… it’s ketchup. Thank-you-and-goodnight, review done Ha! But, seriously let’s have a closer look.

      The now familiar “deep-dish” plastic packets of heat you stuffed in your paper burger bags by the fistful are now available in a much more generous (and economical) bottle size. That’s the first plus right there, more of red stuff you love, anytime you want, without having to run in a Whataburger location, just to squirrel-away a dozen in your wife/girlfriend’s purse and then leave like some sort of ketchup-loving freak! (No joke, my folks had a re-purposed pickle jar full of ‘um at home!) The package design is efficient, squeezable (naturally, it’s ketchup) and most importantly,


      upside-down to start with. (So no more burping-the-bottle-like-a-baby at the bottom to get those last few globs of ketchup stuck down there. The nozzle/mouth is also wider at the top to allow you to do this easily. (Why didn’t Heinz think of that first? I didn’t see their copycat out there until Whataburger) The flavor of the product itself also delivers exactly what it promises, you will feel the heat (which can best be described in my opinion like good ketchup-meets-generic-brand-Tabasco.) While it’s certainly not habenero five-alarm-total-destruction to your tongue, I also wouldn’t recommend going full-bore squeeze-happy with this ketchup and simultaneously topping your burger with jalapenos either, either/or is good enough. You will taste the meat…AND the heat with this ketchup.

      On the downside, it’s ketchup. You’re paying extra in the grocery store for something you can get just the right amount of at your local Whataburger for free (the ketchup packet I mean not the burger…uhh…you get the idea!) You might not need it often enough to justify buying a whole bottle. Also, spicy ketchup is not for everyone. (Hell, I know plenty of bona-fide Texans who think it’s sacrilegious to put anything on a hamburger except mustard…or maybe the occasional stray pickle slice, if they want to get wild.) Plus Whataburger Spicy Ketchup may not have the nationwide mass-market appeal ...


      • Whataburger Spicy Ketchup
      its makers are intending, particularly on the Eastern Seaboard and in the Northeastern US, A.K.A. “Yankees” (where they seem to think KFC Original Recipe is “peppery hot.”) Simply put, this product is an acquired taste. If you’re not a spicy food junky (or even if you are, more accurately, a lightweight) this may still be too much hot for you to handle, burger-eater discretion is advised.

      The final verdict? At around $4-6 a bottle (standard size, price will vary a littler whether you get it at Walmart, online, or from another grocer) but I think it’s a good buy…for those Whataburger fans who love it already, like me. (I honestly put it on everything,

      grilled burgers, brauts, fries, OTHER people’s fries, then steal those fries, etc.) so it goes fast and delivers exactly what you expect (really, it’s the same condiment you get in the restaurant.) But, for the un-Whataburger initiated, (or God-forbid, a Yankee) you might want to go easier on the stuff. If you find yourself stopped at a Whataburger, grab a packet or two and “sample” the stuff, then if you like it, go get some at your grocer’s or online. (It’s still ketchup, it won’t hurt you…I promise!) Bottom line, Whataburger Spicy Ketchup may be a “trendy” new product, but it’s one that should stay, It suits my taste buds just fine. I think you’ll enjoy it!
