Or get 565g of the Lidl equivalent for just 45p - every bit as good to those of us not blinded by branding and advertising.
Great on chips, heat added

No thanks it's minging, not quite a bad as the Aldi one though, that is disgusting.

Although I buy some Aldi and Lidl branded goods, I have to agree with the ketchup..it isn't great. I'd pay the additional for the taste that appeals to me.
Or even better, while in Iceland get the 1 kg one for £2
Nice with chips.

Heat.

Regards.
No one is more of a Lidl/Aldi fan than me - but their tomato sauce? Really?
No comparison with Heinz.
It is the only thing I can think of that bears some resemblance to its taste of yore.
God forbid the day when they ruin it by making it down to a price like everything else has been.
There’s an awful lot of smoke and mirrors about the Heinz myth, primed by huge sums spent by Heinz to keep it going.

Blind taste tests prove that actually most people can’t tell the difference. Unless of course they see the label.

Eat well for less on BBC did a blind taste test, asda came out number 1 while heinz was at the bottom at no.5, can't find this info on their website, was only on the broadcast Switched to Asda's brand and it seems ok really!
I've tried a few different brands over the years but I always come back to Heinz and HP

Heinz has always been very clever with its marketing. They push it hard, targeting kids and their parents in particular (much like Cadbury's) so that kids grow up thinking the only tomato ketchup worth having is Heinz. Much the same with their beans - though Branston have been very successful in smashing that particular myth.

If you grow up thinking that Heinz is the only ketchup, it's difficult to shift that - but blind tests prove that people only think they prefer Heinz.

People are being conned, but they don't realise that they're being brainwashed by the big brands. Ever thought why it is that Heinz are able to get away with charging four times as much for a product that actually contains fewer tomatoes?

Heinz: 148g of fresh tomatoes per 100g finished product
Lidl: 172g of fresh tomatoes per 100g finished product
I'm afraid I'm a fan of Heinz Tomato ketchup too, although w many other products have switched to cheaper own brands, particularly Lidl/Aldi ...

Certain branded products I think have an edge over others...😙

(Branston prickle too ..)

Also in Home Bargains Heinz, 1.35kg £2.39 ...Usually this price
I get whatever ketchup looks cheaper. Don't really have a preference but I rarely use it with my own food. My partner is the one that eats it often and he has never complained (and he's a fussy eater).

The only ketchup I don't like is the one some takeaways use with burgers. It tastes too sweet and revolting.
