Surge vs. Ecto Cooler - April 8, 2013 25 Responses Brian June 29th, 2009 I’m choosing mustard no question. I’m not a big fan of ketchup. I don’t eat my fries with it and I can’t think of anything else I eat that I would have to have ketchup with. You can’t eat a hot dog without mustard. Reply Bryan June 29th, 2009 In my opinion, mustard is the evilest of the condiments. Reply Bear Silber June 29th, 2009 I’m a huge “sauce-whore” and I will add any condiment that is available to my meals and try any combination. That said, and this is tough, I would give up ketchup….only because I use mustard on almost all my meals. It’s like God’s secret sauce….good flavor, no calories….with a little Tabasco it’s perfect. I think they should make a French’s Tabasco flavor….mmmmmm. And that doesn’t include all of the fabulous varieties of mustard….I mean, there’s millions! Reply Skiff June 29th, 2009 Who is voting to keep Ketchup?! Reply Bear Silber June 29th, 2009 @Skiff – I think we’ve got another bacon groupie type thing going on here. Reply ingrid June 29th, 2009 i am so mustard. more variety. more flavor. if i want a tomato, i’ll eat one. Reply Youppi June 29th, 2009 go mustard! ketchup = overrated. Reply Greg June 29th, 2009 As long as mustard means whole grain or Dijon instead of that vile yellow stuff, then I’m keeping mustard. Reply lilchick June 29th, 2009 There are millions of varieties of mustard…ever had a steak with a mustard cream sauce – delice! Ketchup. There is only really one kind. You can kid yourself by buying the spicy version but really – who’s kidding who – it’s ketchup. Mustard is my muse. Reply RhondaB June 29th, 2009 I keep trying to vote, but it’s not working for me. If it comes to a tie vote, put me down for mustard! I don’t want ketchup to diappear though, because it’s the only thing that gets my daughter to each veggies. No, I don’t consider ketchup a veggie, but she will dip broccoli, asparagus and green beans in it. I know, right? Reply Biondid June 29th, 2009 Mustard, hands down. With all the different flavored mustards you would be missing out on so much. Ketchup goes on hotdogs and hamburgers, not sandwichs like it’s counterpart. Mustard is used in many different recipes, where I don’t think I’ve ever used ketchup in cooking. Tomatoes are great on burgers, no ketchup necessary. Are these enough reasons? Reply Julie June 29th, 2009 I probably use mustard more, but I’m voting for ketchup because I can’t live without french fries, and I can’t eat french fries without ketchup. Hence, ketchup wins Reply Amy June 30th, 2009 This is a toughie! I’d have to keep the mustard. Ketchup is easier to substitute/replace. You could use something else tomato-y like salsa. But mustard is kind of its own thing. Reply Miles June 30th, 2009 They are both versatile and tasty. They have cross-over territory, yet also their own distinct niches in cooking and topping of foods. That said, if I think of my favorite foods for Ketchup, versus my favorite foods for Mustard….Ketchup and Burgers is just yummier than Mustard and Hot Dogs. Reply Cary July 1st, 2009 NO. NO. This has to be wrong. How is this even a tough decision? Ketchup with a burger is fine. Maybe eggs or hash browns as well. Mustard with hot dogs. Sandwiches. Meat and cheese platters. Fries. The list goes on. I can’t believe people will choose one piece of food (burger, fries) and take that over the versatility mustard provides on a variety of foodstuffs. Simply astonishing. Reply Nate July 5th, 2009 mustard makes ketchup better. ketchup does not make mustard better. mustard must win Reply RB July 11th, 2009 If mustard were to be banned forever, it wouldn’t be soon enough. I hate mustard, HATE IT, and I can detect even the tiniest bit of it. Trouble is, it’s EVERYWHERE – on sandwiches, in marinades, in salad dressings, one time even lurking beneath the surface of breaded chicken. I’m sick and tired of mustard sucker-punching me in the tastebuds and would be thrilled if it would just go away for good! Reply Rex August 27th, 2009 You should try this again with a picture of hunts ketchup, I bet mustard wins. Reply Melbourne Website Design April 3rd, 2011 mustard all the way!!!! ketchup was so yesterday mustard has this awesome tang, Dijon mustard is my absolute favourite Reply Jen May 12th, 2011 For someone who keeps a backup bottle of ketchup in the back of the fridge so she never has to consume room temp ketchup at home, this is tough. You can’t eat a hot dog, corn dog or brat w/o mustard. You can’t make baked beans w/o it. But, you can dip your fries in mayo, mustard, tartar sauce (yummm). I guess I’ll go with giving up ketchup. Oh sweet Jesus. I can’t believe I just put that out there in the universe. Reply Misery abounds! July 2nd, 2012 I personnaly think that they are both great, and since so many people enjoy them, they should be illegal. Maybe Mayor Bloomberg can see that they are removed from all New York tables. Next, salt & pepper, and then sugar and all substitutes! And no laughing. Reply Kos June 12th, 2013 Little kids and the boring tend to pick ketchup, everyone else picks anything else other than bland ketchup. But what about fries? – Better plain, or with salt, vinegar, hot sauce or mayo, than with Catsup. Reply MattF August 18th, 2014 Just ate 2 stadium dogs with a bunch of ketchup an no mustard. I guess I’m a little different than everyone else because I prefer ketchup more than mustard an it seems like there are more mustard fans… Reply Layne November 11th, 2014 Mustard is horrible and Ketchup is BOSSS and even if I liked mustard I could not live without ketchup I sometimes even cut up hotdogs dip it in cheese and then dip the hotdog with ketchup into shredded cheese it might sound weird but it is goooood Reply Layne November 11th, 2014 I ment to say I dip it in ketchup not cheese Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
