Have you submitted any Heinz condiment packets for Heinz’s The United States of Saucemerica? Not familiar with it? Don’t worry; neither was I.
I was at the corporate Burger King drive-thru getting a double cheeseburger and an original chicken sandwich when I first saw one of these packets. BK included a couple of ketchup packets with a Minnesota “Juicy Lucy” graphic.
This was one of the few times I double-checked my order to make sure both sandwiches were there. I rushed home, not to eat but to go online and investigate this United States of Saucemerica.
The short version is you collect condiment packets and submit a picture on their website. Each packet represents a state, along with a signature dish from there.
There’s also a way to win instant prizes daily on The United States of Saucemerica site. In addition to the instant prizes, there are also the sweepstake prizes. Yup…up for the winning are restaurant, hotel, or gas gift cards, Heinz merch, plus up to $100,000.
The FAQ should probably answer most of your follow-up questions.
What Packets & Where Am I Looking For Them?
These are the packets you’re looking for: Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Heinz Yellow Mustard, Heinz Real Mayonnaise, Heinz BBQ sauce, Heinz Ranch Dressing, Heinz Simply Tomato Ketchup, or Heinz Premium Tartar Sauce.
Where to find them is a little trickier, but I’ve discovered packets at Burger King, Graziano’s, La Carreta, and Wawa in South Florida. The United States of Saucemerica website specifically mentions restaurants, theaters, and theme parks across the U.S. as a good starting point for your search.
What I Have Submit So Far
You don’t end up with a Burger Museum without being a collector. So The United States of Saucemerica is right up my alley.
Please don’t make the mistake I made initially when I submitted a picture with three different packets. There can only be one packet per picture, and only one per state is allowed.
