Ketchup is one of the most incredible condiments on the planet, right? It seems like it would taste good on just about anything. If you are anything like us, you have probably already put that theory to the test. However, there is one place where we would never put our ketchup. It doesn’t seem like it would taste very good on top of a candy bar or any sort of sweet.

Heinz has heard these claims and their response is a simple one: challenge accepted. This Valentine’s Day, you will have the chance to see how ketchup would taste on one of your favorite sweets. Fortnum & Mason is pairing up with the Heinz UK branch to create truffles that are designed to combine the sweet chocolate taste you love with the ketchup that you utilize on an everyday basis.

We cannot believe that someone even thought to do this and we are not sure if that’s a compliment or not. Tomato Ketchup Truffles are now available, whether you are ready for them or not. The ValenHeinz are limited edition, so if you would like to try out these truffles, you are going to have to act quickly. They are not going to remain on the shelves for very long.

It takes a special kind of person to want to combine ketchup and truffles in this way. You either have to be a genius, somewhat deranged, or both. We have yet to be eating a piece of candy and have the urge to add ketchup. Maybe that’s just us, though? We’re not here to judge you and yours in any way.

Tomato Ketchup chocolate truffles exist. I’m not sure if this is marketing genius or a journey into the depths of human cruelty. New review of this insanity up on my YouTube channel- just search Maverick Baking! 👀🥫🍫

These treats have been described as smooth and tangy. It makes sense, but it’s not exactly what we are looking for in our high-end chocolates. If you ever wanted to enjoy ketchup on your chocolate, you are in luck. The rest of us are just going to sit back and wait to hear more. Kelly Cletheroe is a blogger who was brave enough to test them out.

“My god, that was bizarre,” she said, and that would seem to sum things up, wouldn’t it? Different strokes for different folks. These packages cost $25 apiece. Believe it on not? They have already sold out! The world is a very strange place, indeed.
