Heinz Yanks Their Pickle

I realize this does not quite rise to the level of heresy that New Coke was, which was probably one of the darkest periods in this nation's history (ask any of my fellow Atlantans) but H.J. Heinz Co. has decided to remove the familiar little green gherkin that has been adorning their ketchup bottles for over a century.

They are going to replace the little pickle with a (gasp!) actual tomato.

Sheesh, is nothing sacred anymore?

At least we can be thankful the people at Chicago-based Heinz didn't decide to put an image of Barack Hussein Obama on the bottle.

-At least not for the time being.
