The Condiment Packet Museum exists to provide documentation and display of condiments found on packets. The packets in the Museum are specifically all packets other than sugar packets, which are currently well documented by other sources.

What is this?

I'm pretty sure it's parmesan cheese.

Reminds me of my mother's kitchen cabinets. She's been saving up extra condiments for as long as I can remember. I guess she's expecting a nuclear war and a world without Fancy Ketchup and sweet and sour McNugget sauce.

Oh dear. (on preview--about the parmesan, not your mother's cabinets)

What about this? What is that?

Some sort of Chile-Salt mix maybe?

Apparently, " It's basically a bland, pepper-infused large-grained sugar. "

It seems to be a candy, not a condiment.

Fabulon, that's Pico Diana hot sauce candy...imagine grinding up red hot candies with a little more sugar....that's Pico Diana. Es mui caliente.

that's funny, I actually use pico on corn.

I've never used this as a condiment, when would it be appropriate?

I've never used [olive oil] as a condiment, when would it be appropriate?

I like that the packet is marked "Sample without commercial value." Borges seems to wonder the same thing as you...

Me, I could imagine using it as a condiment on a sandwich (especially one made with foccacia. actually I just did that a week or two ago with some homemade foccacia and roasted eggplant. Mmmm.)

Fabulon7, I think the first item you linked to is garlic salt, not parmesean cheese...

I love these kinds of museums!

Arctic Circle ketchup? Where the hell can you grow tomatoes in the arctic circle?

BTW, good olive oil on good bread...mmmmm.

That Pico Diana stuff sounds good.
You can use [good] olive oil on any kind of bread, pasta, pizza, salad. It's also supposed to be good on tomatoes. I don't know if this stuff would qualify as good, however...

This reminds me of the badly-named "Museum of Beverage Containers And Advertising".

Wow, I just realized I used the word "good" four times in that post. That's not very, uh, good.
posted by Fabulon7 at 12:45 PM on October 28, 2002


Also not good.

Psst...Joan.

Tiger Brand Tiger sauce
It's a real treat
Even tigers prefer a cup of it
To real meat.

Thanks Mr. Crash. I have no idea what a lime squeeze is, but now I want one.

(Warning, thread derail...) It makes me happy to see there are still some regional chains left in America. Sometimes when I travel, it all seems soooo homogenized.

I was wondering if any of the packets get old and rancid. Then I searched the FAQ and found my answer.

Ugggh. The chicken salad sandwich on my desk suddenly took on a sinister and upsetting aspect.

Chateau Blanche? I think it would be Chateau Blanc, or even Blanc Chateau. Actually, it's Chรขteau.

How is it that condiment sounds like condom, and is found in the same type of package? What's that all about?
posted by ParisParamus at 7:42 PM on October 28, 2002


You had to ask, PP..:)

ick!

DailyBread: Excellent post. :) I once had a cheap-bastard roommate who used to save up ketchup packets and squeeze them into an almost-empty ketchup bottle. She's a millionaire now...
