Central American Ketchup

Americans traveling abroad, if they do not work hard to isolate themselves by finding and only using imported American market products, will almost always find that there are local variations on the food that we are used to. One that I always notice is ketchup (or catsup.) In the US it is almost always very uniform, bland and full of high fructose corn syrup.
Outside of the US the ingredients, even in the cheap ketchup, tend to be far better and no corn syrup. You get fewer calories and much better taste and real, honest to goodness sugar.
One of the many "how the rest of the world eats better than Americans" discoveries that you are likely to make when traveling.
