    I don't get it. Something with a different recipe, a different taste and different packaging is being marketed and this is a problem? I didn't read anywhere that they were discontinuing tomato sauce, nor that the major tomato sauce manufacturers were following suit.

    ketchup is like tomato sauce but has vinegar in it. There are differences.

    Like cookies are biscuits with stuff in them.

    What a stupid article... I've been eating Ketchup for years as I really like the vinegary tang and the thicker texture. Its a completely different product to tomato sauce, its like saying we cant call meringues meringue anymore because its disrespectful to pavlova.

    I would be more upset if they DIDN'T call it ketchup. Id be so pissed if i tried to buy some tomato sauce and got ketchup instead. Tastes completley different.

    Agree, and i buy both too.

    They should also be used for different foods. Tomato sauce is more salty tomato flavor while ketchup is more sugary sweet tomato flavor.

    Pies - Tomato Sauce
    Sausage Rolls - Tomato Sauce
    McDonalds Hamburger - Ketchup
    Hotdogs - Ketchup
    Fried Egg - Tomato Sauce

    hmmm this is making me hungry

    Typical News.com.au beatup.

    Ketchup is different from tomato sauce and besides....

    Ketchup tastes better too. Long live Ketchup and all US terms (food and non-food related):

    - capsicum = bell peppers
    - pharmacy = drug store
    - dagwood dog = corn dog
    - biscuits = cookies
    - soft drink = soda
    - roundabout = rotary
    - car = automobile
    - coffee = Starbucks
    - spark leads = ignition leads
    - metric = outdated imperial
    - plain scone = biscuit
    - bonnet = hood
    - boot = trunk
    - elevator = lift
    - Fairy Floss = Cotton Candy
    - spring roll = egg roll
    - savoury pie = pot pie
    - ice-block = ice pop

    American food has much more of a developed cuisine than Australia who has copied off everyone else. I visit the United States for two primary reasons; natural beauty and the food! This is much ado about nothing, as already said typical news.com.au beatup. Besides, Dick Smith should be spending this wasted energy helping the environment and charities.

    What a stupid article.

    Either way Heinz Ketchup is far, far superior than any nasty regular tomato sauce.
