Cat'chup with 'Chups

Cat'chup with 'Chups

What defines ketchup? Historically, it originated as a fish sauce, blended with vinegar and spices. So why does the modern market only offer us the tomato variety?

'Chups condiments are re-telling the ketchup story. These tangy, savory, and sweet sauces are all-natural and made with vinegar, spices, and whole fruits instead of tomatoes.

Stop by our Shirlington store on Sunday October 16 from 11am - 3pm to taste them for yourself. No added sugars, and all vegan and gluten free! It's ketchup 2.0.
