Is my ketchup use on french fries out of control?

I'm having lunch now, and I've got an order of steak fries. They're pretty good, and there's probably 20 or so fries in the batch.

Now, this restaurant serves ketchup in those little packets. You know, like McDonalds. They gave me three little packets for my 20+ steak fries. So I asked for more, and they brought me four more.

Now, I would estimate that I probably use 0.6 to 0.8 packets of ketchup on a normal steak fry. I just run a line of ketchup along the length of the fry, and it sums up to that usage. That would mean that I need 12 to 16 packets of ketchup for this particular meal. I'm embarrassed to ask for more, but these fries are really gonna start making me thirsty if I don't have ketchup.

It doesn't seem to me that my use is excessive, but I'll also note that I never, ever get enough ketchup at a restaurant if I order fries and can't grab the ketchup myself. Am I an outlier here, or do others have this problem too?

A poll will be coming, but very slowly and then it'll glop into the thread all at once.

For poll purposes I will make the poll universal and use a small order of McDonald's fries as the measure.

Oh, I thought you meant all three tasted like vinegar.

I like ketchup in a glass bottle better than plastic for some reason.

I usually go with Heinz.

But if its ketchup in a packet, I like McDonald's.

Honey mustard is my first choice, anything mayo based is second. Ketchup is a distant third. Shitty condiment.

When I was a kid, Hi Boy in Independence had ketchup packs that were little plastic dip trays, like when you get ranch or dipping sauce at KFC now. The packs were square and had an aluminum peel off face. The ketchup was made by Kraft Foods, and it was really good. Excellent with onion rings. I guess the packs were too expensive, because eventually Hi Boy switched over to normal ketchup packs like everybody else.

Based on the poll results so far, it seems like ketchup packets should be four times their current size. That would meet the two common needs of four packets and eight packets and save a lot of packaging.

My fast food of choice is Burger King. They usually have the pumping station for ketchup. I usually go through about 6 of those little cups between the burgers and fries.


As for favorite ketchup, Heinz' "Simply Heinz". The Hunts "natural" version is too sweet.

The pumping stations are where it's at. You don't have the shame of asking for more and more ketchup packets.
