Costco Shoppers Can't Get Enough Of This Organic Ketchup

Costco shoppers are more than thrilled to score this great deal on Primal Kitchen's organic and unsweetened ketchup. Sold in a 3-pack, this condiment will have sauce lovers adding a tomato zest to everything from french fries to hot dogs and even eggs. Says one fan, "Such good ketchup, honestly worth the higher price and I don't say that lightly!" (via Instagram). Another reader notes that they can't tell the difference in taste, which we think is probably a good thing if the healthier option is just as yummy as the other, "Ketchup is ketchup there's no difference in taste. Organic or not they all taste the same to me."

From what we can tell, it looks like the bulk by is part of Costco's region-dependent rollout that we've come to know, so it's a little hard to tell if it's hit your market yet. Fortunately, even if you can't get this deal you can still get this ketchup. The brand Primal Kitchen is for sale at multiple retailers and online in single bottles, and you can snag one for $5.99 (via Primal Kitchen).

The kind of ketchup matters to moms

Ask the moms (or dads) of young kids, and many will report that ketchup is an entire food group for their family. For this reason, a great buy on a healthy sauce is incredibly important. Primal Kitchen is rated as the number one choice in healthy ketchup by registered dietitians for Women's Health. The condiment contains tomato concentrate, balsamic vinegar, and spices but skips all the high fructose corn syrup and even manages to avoid dates, honey, or syrups of any kind. A favorite of nutritionist Keri Glassman, RD, this brand avoids the sugar high but still gives you healthy lycopene.

And it's not just good for kids, a healthier ketchup is good for you, too. Less sweetener helps keep the calorie count at 10 calories per serving. In contrast, Heinz ketchup has 20 calories per serving (via Calorie King). Says nutritionist Amanda Baker Lemein, RDN "Classic ketchup has a lot of added sugar, which is something I recommend avoiding."

Fortunately, Costco's affordable rates for bulk purchases can help make this healthier condiment more accessible to all.
