Wanted to see what brand was used elsewhere and found this:
The majority of in-store ketchup dispensers in McDonald’s locations are not branded, and McDonald’s ketchup packets are labeled “fancy ketchup.”

Hunts is what was in the packets in the 80s-90s at least. Had a thinner more vinegar like taste.apfeffer wrote: ↑Oct 28th, 2013 3:28 pmIf you can't tell the differnence in brands of ketchup here is the down low - Heinz was phased out years ago into Fancy due to lack of tomatoes at one point and cost - Heinz used to be on the backside of the packets if you remember.
So how can you tell the ketchup by looks (not taste) the main thing about Heinz is the higher sugar content and the straining process - it is smooth / shiny / glossy looking. I use this at home. The Fancy brands is a lower grade of ketchup where it is in more natural process of watery or slightly lumpy with less sugar.... the brands are mostly Hunts or Del Monte ( mostly Del Monte) - there is nothing wrong with these brands or process - you don't even notice the difference on food - but you do when you eat your fries inside the restaurant - the ketchup is not as shiny or smooth as a bottle of heinz at you home. I like Del Monte and Heinz equally - Hunts is missing something ( not enough nutmeg in the process?) Yes Nutmeg is the special secret ingredient in Ketchup
Have fun trying to tell the difference.

Heinz makes condiments other than ketchup. Maybe Heinz provides their mustard or vinegar? The ketchup at McDonald's, as others have posted, hasn't been Heinz for a very long time.Siefer999 wrote: ↑Oct 29th, 2013 2:05 ampretty sure mcdonalds canada has always used heinz ketchup in all their products. they are mentioned as one of mcdonalds canada's suppliers http://www.mcdonalds.ca/ca/en/food/meet ... liers.html

+1 This was my thought also, I always thought Mcdonalds ketchup was not Heinz brand. I recall Alymer's being the brand in Ontario.
