Those clever food folks in white lab coats are always devising newer, better ways to get products to consumers. Consider one of this year's launches from Heinz, Dip & Squeeze packets, which allow you TWO ketchup distribution methods! Whoah there, future boy! Seems like not long ago, being able to buy ketchup in a squeeze bottle was a major supermarket product innovation.
Now, you can get them in fish-shaped packets, and get Guy Fieri's name on them too! Okay, maybe you can't get everything in those kinds of squeeze bottles, but it seems you can get everything in the typical ones: dressing, relish, those extremely helpful little lemon and lime juice squeezies, and of course, jam. (Though the folks at Smucker's may want to work on that tagline.) Then there are the squeeze bottle products you may not have known about — some more appetizing than others.
Ami's Squeeze Z Hummus
"Smooth, rich and creamy with just a hint of garlic," this 'secret family recipe' is supposedly totally squirtable. You figure they had to have gone heavy on the tahini for this to work.
Kemp's Easy Squeeze Sour Cream
"A perfect addition to your favorite recipes, in a convenient squeeze bottle!" Sour cream ever strike you as something that would easily squirt from a bottle? Maybe Mexican crema-style?
La Lechera Condensed Milk - Squeeze Bottle
This smacks of those sticky syrup and honey bottle situations. Anyway, you can't trust translations: "Leche condensada azucarada La lechera para preparar postres y tomarse con cafe," is said on the site to mean, "The site says sweetened, condensed milk is good for baking." They left out the best use, in coffee!
Vilhelm Lillefläsk's Squeez Bacon
No comment needed: "A few years after WWII ended, a young man working in a small restaurant in Sweden developed a new way to process bacon. By precooking it and blending it in a special way, he was able to make a fully cooked 100% bacon paste that could be squeezed from a tube. Knowing he had discovered something paradigm-shifting, young Vilhelm Lillefläsk quickly went into business. That, dear friends, is when Squeez Bacon® was born. And this delicious delectable from Sweden has finally been brought over to the USA - now with American Flavor!"
La Victoria Salsa Brava (Squeeze Bottle) - Taco Sauce
Here's one heat-lovers can back. Forget glass bottles with stoppers that make you repeatedly shake them for just a few dashes of spice!! Imagine squeezing out a stream of spicy sauce.
American Old Fashioned Foods Mature Cheddar Squeeze Cheese
It's uncertain what's old-fashioned here, but given the processed stuff you see with chili fries, mac and cheese, nachos and the like, you've probably seen the cheese, if not the bottle.
Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce Squeeze Bottle
You can certainly find a use for this, you just may not have known you could find it. More interesting are the random things on Amazon that customers who bought squeeze bottle hoisin also purchased — Kettle Chips with Sea Salt & Vinegar and The Microwave Cooker by Fasta Pasta?
Contadina - Squeeze Pizza Sauce
A half-used bottle of sauce in the fridge turns into a half-used squeeze bottle. Does mold still grow?
Dr Pepper Cherry Dessert Topper Squeeze Bottle
Forget that it's in a squeeze bottle. Did you even know there was such a thing?
Liquid Gold Gourmet Seafood Butter Squeeze Bottle
What is better than butter? Liquid GOLD gourmet seafood butter...in a squeeze bottle. So it's not that unexpected — but worth noting.
Woeber's Supreme Wasabi Mustard Squeeze Bottles
Ketchup? Sure. Mustard? Check. BBQ sauce? Seen it. But wasabi mustard in a squeeze bottle? Brain burn.
