Heinz, then Hunts and Del Monte sometimes....

What else is there that could really dominate a region?

Here it is also Heinz and Hunt's, I get Red Gold too since it is usually cheaper.

Here in Missouri, in addition to the others mentioned, you will sometimes see "Red Gold" ketchup in stores. This was a variety of tomato that was grown in the Ozarks and was responsible for driving the economy here for a very long time.

Heinz here in the Tri-State. Hunt's is horrible. It is nothing more than water with red food coloring and "tomato" flavoring. Del Monte is good, too.

Heinz is a national brand. Red Gold is big here since it's produced in the state.

What I find amusing is that in Pittsburgh (home of Heinz - About Heinz ) it seems that the locals generally take brown gravy on their fries.

Pittsburgher here - Heinz is the only way to go. I haven't traveled abroad much but it's the only ketchup I've noticed outside the US.

I thought they took a sandwich on their fries!

I was talking to someone from Holland the other day, and while they don't eat as much ketchup as we do, they have Heinz, as well. I've used Heinz ketchup in the UK, as well.

It seems to be the leader most places.
