Ketchup is ketchup.. ha ha

In WV you can easily find either Hunts or Heinz. I really can't say that I've noticed a distinctive difference in taste. I guess I'm just easy to please.

We do????

I was raised in Pittsburgh, and moved back after college, and Denver for a while, and never, not once saw somebody put gravy on their fries.

Interesting. I've definitely heard of the ketchup thing, but gravy? Maybe the older generations did that...perhaps they though potatoes are potatoes?

Here in MN I see both Heinz & Hunts. Don't know which one sells better, but at our house, the wife always brings home Hunts. Personally, I don't eat the stuff.
