Yeah, I didn’t know about the Pittsburgh-Heinz connection before moving here! I was being a space cadet assuming. I don’t like pickles, so to me you are a brave, brave soul. I do want to go to the Gilroy Garlic Festival one day! You can really smell it a mile away: my family drove past one hot summer to visit relatives, but had no time to stop.
@will yeah! That’s the story I heard! Like he was counting all his products and stopped at 57 because it sounded cool. Downtown Pittsburgh has a history museum that focuses on local history, and they have a permanent exhibit about Heinz. Ya gotta take all the info with a grain of salt because Heinz sponsered the museum, to the point there’s a huge neon ketchup bottle attached to it, but it’s a fun visit nonetheless.
EDIT: Wife would like to add, it’s MOVING neon light ketchup bottle, which forever pours ketchup all over the Pitt. Tasty!
