Seems to be an almost universally held food no no; and I imagine I may lose friends over this.

But for me, the sweetness of the ketchup marries beautifully with the salt of the dog. All you need is a touch of mustard for perfection.

You may not be receiving an allocation but they have been increasing their price. [rofl.gif]
What’s the price history? I know 14/15 didn’t increase. 16 went up a whole $10.
$150 at the start. The price increased to $165 for 14/15 and $175 for 2016.
