Post to the Host:
Did you start Ketchup Advisory Board sponsorship due to Ronald Reagan's statement that it was a vegetable for school children?
Or what is the origin of the Ketchup Advisory Board?
We wanted to promote the commonest food we could think of and thought that ketchup (or catchup, or catsup) qualified. It was either going to be ketchup or saltines. Or cottage cheese. We settled on ketchup. And then of course it turned into the saga of Jim and Barb and their dysfunctional family. Had nothing to do with Mr. Reagan.
