Heinz Balsamic Vinegar Review

Taste Test: Heinz Ketchup Blended With Balsamic Vinegar

We've definitely busted out the grill to barbecue a ton of recipes this Summer, so naturally it's only fair that we would cover awesome condiments, too. Sure, you can serve classic Heinz ketchup at your barbecue, but the iconic American ketchup company released a Heinz Ketchup Blended With Balsamic Vinegar ($3) that might be worth putting out on the table. We tried the ketchup with fries, deliberated, and drew our conclusions about the unusual flavor.

The promise: "Instead of white vinegar, this version of our classic Ketchup is blended with balsamic vinegar for a more sophisticated taste."

See the rating and what we thought when you read more.

What our tasters thought: Those who are big fans of ketchup loved the balsamic variety, claiming it was similar to "barbecue sauce" and "less sweet" than standard ketchup. But not everyone was impressed. Some didn't pick up on the balsamic flavors, pointing out that "it wasn't vinegar-y enough" and "just tasted like regular ketchup."

What YumSugar thought: The tart flavor paired well with sweeter items like sweet potato french fries. However, we didn't really pick up on a distinct balsamic flavor.

Tasters' rating average: 7 out of 10

Overall thoughts: We admire Heinz for attempting to branch out into a more sophisticated market. The product does taste good, but the balsamic label does not really match the flavor inside the bottle.

Have you tried Heinz balsamic ketchup?
