What other colors of gravy are there? If you order a roast beef sandwich with gravy and fries you might get asked if you want gravy on your fries, but it's never been a popular thing to do in the past 50 or 60 years unless it was a short-lived fad somewhere. Kennywood (our amusement park) used to have a shaker bottle of vinegar beside the ketchup and mustard where they sold fries only.

Ketchup is Heinz' number one product. It's the most popular all over the world. They claim to use a secret ingredient that looks like juice in a small glass and flavors 7,000 gallons at a time. Pittsburgh is on the label but it's bottled by Del Monte in another city. Pittsburgh only makes the little packets.

There's white sausage gravy, giblet gravy (which can be yellowish), tomato gravy (red), red eye gravy (sorta coffee colored, but different than brown gravy), egg gravy, etc....

Mustard is always better than ketchup, anyway. I prefer Guilden's Spicy Brown, along with Best Foods light mayonnaise

Hey I'm with you on that one. But my poor wife doesn't seem to think so-she belongs to "The World Wide Mustard Haters Club". ????

Around here it's Heinz, Hunts, Delmonte and last but not least "Food Club"
We have Blue Plate Mayo, maybe they make a ketchup too.

Heinz is one of those brands that I buy religiously. I will buy generic or store brands in many instances, but Heinz for Ketchup, Kraft for Mayo and Coca Cola are never to be substituted for store brands. Yellow mustard on the other hand, who cares, get the cheapest.

Growing up in upstate NY my father would always get and later I came always also to get this yellow mustard with a faint horseradish tinge: Heintz & Weber Co, Inc. — Products

Then I moved to the Midwest and, seeking something similar, got this: Boetje's Mustard From Boetje Foods Inc. - Best of QC Mall Quad Cities Portal - WeAreQC.com which moves from a 2 to about a 12 on the horseradish scale. After one spoonful I decided I liked the mustard a lot better than the horseradish.

So now I'll have Weber's on the Nittany Lion Franks: Kessler's Line of Products - while really wishing for the Hofmann's Snappy Grillers Hofmann Sausage, Syracuse, NY German Franks

Best Foods? Down here, that's called Hellmanns. Odd how the same product has two different names.

Other examples of this:

Edy's Ice Cream= Dreyer's
Dixie Crystals Sugar = Imperial sugar

Certain brands have different levels of impact & recognition in different areas.
