Ketchup: Love It or Hate It?

A friend once said to me, "I'm hungry for a hamburger. Why? Because I want to eat ketchup." He loves ketchup so much that he'll order food — burgers, fries, etc. — with the specific desire of enjoying ketchup.

I think ketchup is a great condiment, but I've never really doused my food in it. How do you feel about it?

Hate ketchup - I'm a barbecue sauce girl through and through. I live in London right now and return from trips home with several bottles of KC Masterpiece each time

I like it on burgers, fries, hot dogs. My husband puts it on eggs and the smell nearly makes me vomit. Seriously.

I hate ketchup, as well as most other condiments. Guess I'm just a plain person. But seriously if anything even touches ketchup I won't eat it.I've never liked, even when I was little I wouldn't go near the stuff.

I love ketchup, use it on scrambled eggs, hot dogs, hamburgers, with fries, hashbrowns, on top of meatloaf. I get the low sugar kind because regular is just too sweet and i never buy heinz because i cant stand John Kerry and his wife.

I hate ketchup. I'm not a big mustard fan, but at least a little of a nice honey or dijon mustard on the right sandwich is good. Ketchup, in my opinion, ruins everything. And when something comes with it, there's always so much! I like tomatoes, but ketchup is so sweet and gross. Glad to know there are others who don't like ketchup!

I have a friend who loves ketchup, but I can't stand the stuff. (Ironically, I like tomatoes and she hates them). My condiment for fries is barbecue sauce. Everyone thinks I'm weird because I don't like ketchup, good to know there are others out there!

I hate all condiments. I was at a restaurant the other night and I thought I'd just give ketchup one more try, and I dipped my fork in it and had to take a gulp of water right away! It's so nasty! On the other hand, I have a friend who eats ketchup with EVERYTHING...

Too much sugar (HFCS)! I do like to make homemade curry ketchup, though.

I actually only use ketchup on fries, and I only eat them once or twice a year.

I used to be a Heinz devotee but I hate HFCS so I tried the Trader Joe's organic ketchup and it's all I'll use now.

I used to hate it. I would cringe whenever I saw someone put ketchup on fries. Nowadays though, I find myself enjoying just a little with the food that calls for it, ie. fries, hotdog, burger. though I think it's due to my expanding tste range. i used to hate curry but now i love it too. though i won't go through bottles in one week.

I'm indifferent. I like it on some things (e.g. fries, meatloaf, burgers); but, on anything else (e.g. hot dogs) it's a no-no. Also, I'm partial to Heinz ketchup.

I love ketchup - especially mixed with mayo on sandwiches. I know, I'm a horrible person.

I love Ketchup, but it has to be Heinz

I like it on burgers and that's about it... We had a person order a grilled cheese at work the other day, and the waitress came back with some ketchup and asked us to put it on the sandwich before it went if we weren't grossed out enough, she came back after she brought his food out and said when she went out there he was eating a spoonful of straight ketchup! He told her, "I love this stuff...I just can't get enough!" I wanted to gag
