Only reason this makes sense to me is because it supports toronto community housing.

You can also buy 4 large pops for 22$ and popcorn for 12$.. And if you go outside of your house for a smoke during the game, you may not come back in.

But they let you bring your own snacks and food in anyway, just go to a convenience store before the game :p

Yes, companies pay sports teams for advertising, it's called marketing

My hometown is Leamington Ontario. I can't stress enough how badly Heinz treated our farmers, and our country when they pulled out of Canada. If you want to reward a horrible company that destroyed the lives of hundreds of Canadian farmers who faithfully grew for them for decades, eat Heinz. Frenches jumped in to save an entire crop from rotting in the fields, and stopped many farmers from literally losing their farms. If you want to reward a company for investing in Canada; try out their brand.

Heinz is pulling a stunt like this to generate an easy tax break. For the cost of two hotdogs, you're paying 12 bucks towards a tax break that Heinz will write off at year end. Just donate the money yourself, and claim it on your own taxes.

This is such a stupid marketing gimmick I can’t believe the stunt.

Also the “100% of proceeds” thing is probably proceeds after paying drivers the delivery fee and the door dash cut.

Also bet the door dash scam fee is on top of this.

Do the charity and yourself a favour, buy the hot dog from Costco, and make a donation separately, don’t support this stunt.

Sadly there are a lot of people who probably don't care and as long as Heinz is the official product of whatever, then that's good enough for a pass. That's why I found it bizarre that a baseball club would need an official ketchup however, it looks like Heinz needs them more then the Jays need them in order to appeal to the masses. Your post is 100% correct, tax break and all.

Pastimes like sports and foods go hand in hand. Most people like to have snacks and drinks while watching a game or a movie.

So naturally it makes sense for sponsors to jump onboard shilling their products like these when a game's on to entice viewers or listeners to feel like having that product. Perfect marketing tactics.

Pizza Pizza has been calling themselves the official pizza of the Toronto Raptors. Even though it surely isn't one of the most favourites with the majority of folks out there.

I think apart from all of this you would be helping the driver as well as they depend on orders to make money.

July 24th, 8PM. I begin to salivate as I think about the two hot dogs I had pre-ordered two days prior and have been craving ever since. I nervously glance at the doordash app as the delivery makes it way to my door. Even though I was already way overpaying for these hot dogs I tip the driver $5, which I know damn well is already far more than the actual value of this food.

I open the bag. Inside lies two boxes, and 3 sad packets of Heinz ketchup, the official ketchup of the Toronto Blue Jays. I smell the packets - it smells like baseball season. I open the box and gaze upon an anemic hot dog sandwiched within a sad looking piece of bun, which has become soggy over the course of the 20-minute delivery route. I bite into the hot dog and felt the texture of this sad, steamed piece of garbage, with consistency that I can only describe as toilet paper. I finish the two hot dogs with eternal shame, knowing that the hot dog vendor a 5-minute walk away could have given me a fresh hot dog for a fraction of the price. I delete my RFD account as I realize how much money I have just pointlessly wasted.
