Heinz Offers A New Way To Squeeze The Ketchup

Innovative dual-function ketchup packet from Heinz.

Last year, Heinz introduced new ketchup packaging that can be used in two very important ways. Heinz Dip & Squeeze Ketchup can be opened up to dip french fries in, or it can be used traditionally like a squeeze packet. While the convenience is nice, what is important to note here is that, not only is it rolling out nationwide, but it also holds three times the ketchup. No more tearing open multiple packets while your burger and fries get cold!

Press release after the jump (including an offer for free fries).
