Ketchup Now Comes In Slices

Ketchup is an occasional condiment for some and a way of life for others. And now, you can eat ketchup in easy slices for a non-messy burger or sandwich.

It’s also vegan and all natural without artificial flavors, preservatives, or high-fructose corn syrup. The sliced form is supposed to keep your bread from getting soggy. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated so you can easily bring it everywhere.

It’s called Slice of Sauce from Bo’s Fine Foods. The idea started when one of the founders of the company was making a BBQ sauce from a family recipe that required braising a lot of vegetables. But instead of throwing them away. She mixed, ground, baked and dried them and accidentally made her first ketchup slice.

Slice of Sauce isn’t the first ketchup slice around. An LA restaurant called Plan Check Kitchen + Bar has been serving “ketchup leather” since 2014. They spread ketchup onto a baking sheet and dehydrate it in the oven for three hours. However, Slice of Sauce is trying to bring ketchup slices to grocery store shelves. It has raised more than $12,000 of its $15,000 goal on Kickstarter. Early backers can get their ketchup slices in June of 2018.
