Metallic Ketchup

You can buy shampoos, nail polish and liquid hand-soap that have little flecks in them that make them appear metallic. The point of this has never been clearly explained, but obviously ketchup would derive the same benefits, whatever they may be. So, quite simply, metallic-look ketchup.

So, like this but ketchup http://images.cake-...491785-87891000.jpg

       It's possible to obtain* vodka with tiny flecks of real gold leaf in it. It doesn't taste any different to the regular kind, though.   

       *Choose between "purchase" (if you have more money than sense), or "abstract" (if you have more sense than money, and a turn of speed that allows you to outdistance the store owner).

       Even hydrogen, when subjected to sufficient compression, is predicted to become metallic.   

       Ketchup will presumably undergo this transition at a substantially lower pressure.

       Ground glass, or flakes of silverised plastic? McDonalds is the natural client. Every toxic mouthful deserves a complimentary relish. One of your best offerings. [+]

       Cooling lubricant for new android overlords, I presume.

       This ketchup stuff. I try and tell people to avoid it because it contains a bunch of sugar. Sugar is known to produce inflammation in our bodies.   

       So no. Even though I love a bit of metallic-looking glitter in other things, a lot, on this one, gotta say no.
blissmiss, Oct 27 2018

       glitter is bad. really bad... along with other plastic rubbish.

       We're not talking about cheap tinsel here. We're talking about the long-chain polymers that give liquids a metallic lustre.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 27 2018

       not convinced [Max] lets have some science.
po, Oct 27 2018

       You're asking the wrong person, he's only a biochemist, which everyone knows isn't a proper science, just an excuse to cut up rats.
8th of 7, Oct 27 2018

       ..... and eat them.....(after spraying them with silver glitter paint of course)
xenzag, Oct 27 2018

       Rat's OK, but it's not a patch on dormouse.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 27 2018

       ha - your favourite recipe naturally being the famous dormoussaka no doubt. Meanwhile, I posted a new idea - just for you.
xenzag, Oct 27 2018

       There is a harmless glitter approach. For awhile there was a company that made multihued diffraction grating holograms on sugar, likely by pressing a form against it. link]   

       If you make these-already existing food holograms into powder you could make glitter condiments.
beanangel, Oct 28 2018

       Nutritious ketchup, now with iron.
whatrock, Oct 28 2018

       hmmm since ketchup is already a non-Newtonian fluid the introduction of digestible ferrous minerals wouldn't just make for sparkly ketchup.
Running a current through the wiener would not only cook it from the inside out but make the ketchup crawl up and coat the entire hot dog evenly!

       Added a [link] to metallic royal icing.
beanangel, Oct 28 2018

       That first link is pretty cool.   

       There ya go, then. If you can have metallic red edible food paint [link], it follows that you can have metallic ketchup.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 28 2018

       The icing link, there beanie, for a moment I thought I had been transgobbed to Pinterest, forever.
blissmiss, Oct 29 2018

       next up: Gilded french fries   

       I think they would be visually extraordinary.
beanangel, Oct 29 2018

       If you want metallic aftertaste in a condiment, can't do better than anchovy paste.
LoriZ, Nov 02 2018

       ... particularly if you don't take it out of the can.

       Or, or if you ask kindly enough your local dentist can sever the nerve in your jaw running to your tongue with the tip of a needle and everything can taste like metal for about a year or so...   

       He said it's like hitting a bullseye with your eyes closed so you'll have to find a dentist who 'practices' really hard first.   

       // like hitting a bullseye with your eyes closed //   

       Try the following:

       Place a postage stamp, gummed side up, on the floor in the centre of a room.   

       Place a chair against one wall.   

       Close the curtains or blinds and turn the lights off (to make the room really dark).   

       Stand on the chair and stick your tongue out. Then hurl yourself off the chair and fall to the floor, while attempting to lick the stamp.   

       If you succeed, congratulations ! You are now ready to attempt a night landing on an aircraft carrier,
8th of 7, Nov 02 2018

       Ah yes. There speaks a hegemonizing smarm who has the depth of experience that can only come from personally talking to people who have actually landed on an aircraft carrier at night.   

       It's also worth pointing out that landing on an aircraft carrier at night is a stupid thing to do in the first place. Wait until morning, by which time the boat will have docked somewhere nearer to a proper airfield and all the showing-off can be avoided completely.   

       And let's face it, landing on an aircraft carrier is not especially difficult anyway. The difficult part is in manoeuvering a 100,000 ton ship so that it's exactly under the plane as it touches down.
