Heinz launches Ketchup chocolates – and they taste as bad as they sound
Ketchup-flavour chocolates now exist – and honestly, we’re confused.
Heinz collaborated with Fortnum & Mason to create the quirky truffles.
The sweet ‘treats’ consist of a blonde chocolate ganache and tomato sauce filling.
They are encased in either milk, white and dark choccy and have a red spot of decoration on their tops.
The products, which are likely only to be enjoyed by hardcore ketchup fans, can be picked up from Fortnum & Mason for £19.95.
And (un)luckily for us at Daily Star HQ, we were able to get our hands on them.

We have to give Heinz props for their presentation.
The heart-shaped box with gold embossing wouldn’t look out of place in a fancy chocolatier.
And the truffles look and smell exactly like ones you’d find in Fortnum & Mason too.
Sadly, we didn’t get the same luxurious experience when we tucked into them.
While taste testers were hoping for a more subtle tomato flavour, the chocolates packed a punch.

Some Daily Star staff members shrugged their shoulders when they tried the chocolates.
One helpfully described the truffles as “ketchupy”, while another noted that you can taste the vinegar in them.
Other taste testers let their reactions do the talking.
While some shouted “eeeeurgh” in horror, others rushed to the bin to spit the choccies out.
Our final verdict is – only give these chocolates to passionate ketchup connoisseurs this Valentine's Day.
Alternatively, you can gift them to someone as a revenge present and watch as their face turns green.
