Well, it's obviously vinaigrette at chez Celedhring. Easily go through a bottle of vinegar and virgin oil each every month, plus some other assorted ingredients I sprinkle it with.

I must say that some of those condiments are a bit puzzling. Nutella is a condiment now? Coconut oil? Peanut butter?

I'm skeptical so few have ketchup.

Indeed.  I suspect the numbers are heavily massaged to avoid it being ketchup or mayo across the board.

The article says that it's the most "Buzzed about" condiment, not the most purchased.
In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace—and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock

I'm partial to a specific brand of curry ketchup.



And sriracha.

I like ketchup, I like curry. Mixing them both? No way.  :hmm:

i think he is implying that the curry was the wurst; he wasn't trying to curry favor by praising the curry flavor.
