Fortnum & Mason collaborated with Heinz on an unusual Valentine's Day creation—the Fortnum's x Heinz Tomato Ketchup Truffles. Just 1,000 boxes of the hard-shell, hand-made truffles are being launched for the occasion and introduce a mix of white, milk and dark chocolate truffles. On the inside of the truffles, there's blonde chocolate ganache and Heinz Tomato Ketchup. According to Heinz, "The bright and tangy tomato flavor from the ketchup bursts through the silky creamy rich ganache with a sweet finish."
Over the last few years, Heinz has introduced a number of unusual ketchup hybrids like ketchup and mayonnaise or ketchup and sriracha but this pairing of ketchup and chocolate is truly unexpected and offers an unusual treat for fans of the condiment.
