So what is Secret Stadium Sauce like? Spicy, sweet, salty, fiery? I like to fiddle around with sauces like that.
It's like ketchup but not as tomatoey, not very spicy at all, and slightly salty. Almost like a combination of ketchup and an unsweet barbecue sauce. I tasted some straight from the bottle last night and that's the best way I can describe it.
If it's a lot brighter red than say, Heinz ketchup, I might almost suspect that it's one of the other brands. Hunt's experimented many years ago with a "fresh" brand of ketchup that was a lot less sweet and a that was not cooked nearly as long as most brands, and I thought it tasted great. Most customers, sadly, liked the regular ketchup, which is cooked for so long that it turns a dark red and almost all of the tomato flavor is unrecognizable.
Either that, or the Secret Staduim sauce may be something they make themselves. Having worked in catering and having managed a few concessions, I'd suspect that it's some kind of commercial brand simply because that's usually easier to source and to keep in stock and it stores longer.
