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

  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

  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.
