H J Heinz Vintage 1896 Recipe Ketchup

Coffee from 1850. Ketchup from 1896. How about Coca-Cola from the time when it had cocaine it in? (Spotted by Peter K at Stop & Shop.)

  1. I don’t get it, can someone please explain what’s different about this and why this would even be of interest?

    1. Absolutely nothing. The ingredients are exactly the same as the “Simply Heinz” variety of ketchup.

    2. Because its great! especially the Smoky variety…
      This stuff is excellent, so naturally they have apparently stopped producing it.

  2. I found the vintage Heinz at Shop n Save in St. louis; it reminds me of how it use to taste growing up in the 50’s. The store has been bought out by a larger St. Louis store, Schmucks and now I can’t find it to my dismay. I guess it’s like so many products that change through the years, cost, and people’s taste change and food regulations. I hope someone can provide me a answer to where I can still get it. Chuck

    1. Chuck they sell it cheap at Food Depot. Original, Smoky and Spicy. Large stock at all stores it’s very popular.


  3. The Vintage Spicy was the best. I’m down to my last bottle. I would do anything to get a crate of this stuff.

  4. They have it here in the Houston area at the 99 Cent Only Stores. In fact, it is 2 for $.99 so an even better bargain.

    1. Please let me know if the Heinz vintage ketsup is still available! I have tried previously but given up.
