If you’re like me, your knowledge of mustard variety extends to “yellow” and “Dijon”. But after doing a bit of research on this company and their amazing variety of mustards, I know I’m going to be heading down to my local retailer (of which there appears to be a few) and trying this out. (Amazing Maple, perhaps?)

Kozlik’s has been around since 1948, and with the amount of people singing their praises online, I encourage you to check them out.

Condiments: Primo Ketchup 🍁

Name: Primo

Product: Ketchup

Manufactured in: Canada, from Canadian tomatoes

Where to buy: List of stores here

Website: primofoods.com

Canadian owned: Yes

Primo Foods’ ketchup is the winner of the great Canadian ketchup derby that erupted in 2016. Unlike French’s, Primo is a Canadian company, and also uses Canadian tomatoes from southwestern Ontario and manufactures the product at their plant in North York, Ontario (or possibly in Ruthven, Ontario, at their parent company, Sun-Brite Food’s plant). It’s a little bit harder to find than French’s or Heinz – put some heat on your local grocery store to stock it.
