Heinz Sriracha Ketchup Is Coming To America. Are You Ready?

2015 is off to a good start.

It's only February, but holy prepare-your-tastebuds has it already been a good year for sriracha lovers. In January, Lee Kum Kee introduced a new sriracha chili ketchup and in February, we can report that Heinz Ketchup has officially released a new tomato ketchup blended with SRIRACHA.


The ketchup will join Heinz's other flavored ketchups (Jalapeno, Tabasco and Balsamic Vinegar) on the shelves this February.

Available at Walmart, Target and a few other select retailers, the sriracha ketchup is recommended by the folks at Heinz to pair well with cheeseburgers, French fries, hot dogs, chicken, eggs and everything else.

Here's what HuffPost Taste thought of the ketchup that's sure to catch on as a mainstream condiment:

It won't satisfy a sriracha craving for a real sriracha fan, but it's a nice compromise for those who are afraid of heat (and for those who may be addicted to sugar)." -- Kristen Aiken, Executive Editor, HuffPost Taste

"I like it! It's a little sweet, but l totally like it. It's an improvement on Heinz, maybe not on Sriracha though." -- Alison Spiegel, Editor, HuffPost Taste

Just think -- for only $2.69, you can make your taste buds do this:
