Red vs. Brown: Which sauce are you?


Forget the general election … this is REALLY important

A fun little item caught our SAUCY eye today. Ha! Come on readers, KETCHUP will ya? Ha ha!

OK. It was a slow news day. But we still like this as it will divide a nation of Brits and have families fighting at the table. Red or Brown?

The “Red vs. Brown” campaign pits Heinz Tomato Ketchup lovers against fans of HP Sauce. It has kicked off with the message being spread on the brands’ social media channels.

There is a dedicated website to vote on your favourite sauce flavour. The votes will be tracked on a regional map to highlight the divide in popularity across different parts of the UK.

You can vote and also win a year’s supply!

So, prove your alliance once and for all and let’s see what sauce comes out on top.

Forget the free plane ticket to Toronto — cheer up your mum with a nice tin of soup!


Forget paying for that flight to Toronto for your mum — send her a tin of soup instead!

As you can see in our tagline at the top of the page, Brits in Toronto was Voted “Best New Website 2013” by my mum.

We’re all very proud of that honour, and even though our mums — and other loved ones that we left behind to move to Toronto — may still be living on the other side of the pond, you can now treat them to what they’ve always wanted: a nice tin of Heinz Soup.

Now in its 5th year, the campaign designed by We Are Social lets you order soup for a loved one who may need a little pick-me-up.

Form their site: “Get Well Soup offers the nation a simple way to cheer up a poorly loved one, by delivering a personalized can of Heinz Soup straight to their door. Working from the simple but significant insight that soup is the perfect pick-me-up when feeling under the weather, users can personalize their own can of Tomato or Chicken Soup for just £3.99 — a great price for such a unique gift.”

Here’s the Facebook page. You can even personalize the cans, and as a bonus, £1 from each sale will also be donated to children’s charity Starlight, to bring magical storytellers to seriously ill children across the U.K.

It’s a great idea all around. So, what are you waiting for? Send yer ma that tin of Chicken Soup she’s been wishing for all week and show her that you care …
