Which are the crazy food ideas that flopped? There are a lot of competitors in the food industry, so besides constantly providing the good product, you have to make up some new things from time to time, just for the reason of your customers not getting used to you and wanting to try something they haven’t tried before. So, the companies sometimes have the good mix-ups that bring them more money and new customers. That is just sometimes because usually, these attempts end up in a disaster. You probably think that these ideas came from small, unfamiliar companies, but you are not right.

So, maybe these companies should stick with the thing they do best instead of experimenting. As the title says, purple ketchup is one of those disasters. Who wants to eat purple ketchup? Did we learn wrong in school or the tomatoes are still red? The purple ketchup is just not the right thing to see or God forbid eat. Maybe it would be interesting to see in some music video.
