people.com – Most people eat ketchup on burgers, hot dogs and fries—and maybe occasionally on dishes like eggs and macaroni, if you’re feeling crazy—but now the condiment is creeping its way into dessert. Exhibit A: This ketchup-flavored ice cream.
Gelati, a shop that has two locations in Ireland, created the flavor in honor of Ed Sheeran, who is so obsessed with Heinz Ketchup he has their logo tattooed on his bicep. They wanted to welcome the “Shape of You” singer, who just played five shows in various Irish cities and has three upcoming shows in Dublin, back to their country with a flavor he would appreciate.
“We @gelati_icecream decided to welcome Ed Sheeran back to Ireland by creating his favourite flavour: Tomato ketchup!!,” they wrote on Instagram before announcing they were offering free ketchup cones to concert attendees.
In a second Instagram post, the shop shared a photo of three freshly-made bright red scoops in a cone, which were made with real ketchup in the cream and then topped with an extra squeeze. “Everyone knows there’s no ketchup like Heinz, and there’s no ice cream like Gelati’s,” they wrote. “Fancy a taste of Ed Sheeran’s fav?!”
Look I know I defended Ketchup’s honor but even I said I don’t overly use it or abuse it…just a little bit here and there….this right here is a crime against humanity. Now my cousin and Michigan contributor Chris is one of those “I like food with my Ketchup” people…I don’t condone that so I DEFINITELY don’t condone this shit. Of COURSE it was inspired by Ed Sheeran, of course it was but this is a hard pass for me dog.
