Pass the blue ketchup!

Rob and I tried blue (or was it green?) ketchup back when it came out. I thought: It's ketchup! What's the big deal?

But there was something unnerving about the color that just sent the wrong message to my mouth and brain or something. I could. Not. Eat. It. I tried, but I swear, even French fries dipped in it tasted awful. I think we eventually threw it out, mostly unused.

Matt of X-Entertainment had a much better relationship with the stuff, though, which he details here.

I don't know if it's true, but there is a story about Alfred Hitchcock hosting a dinner party at which all the food was dyed blue to test the theory that we are somehow adverse to blue food. According to the legend, no one ate very much, even though the meals were prepared by skilled chefs. I haven't tried it myself, but I often thought about his experiment during the blue raspberry craze in the early nineties.
