H-E-B to Offer Whataburger Condiments
This summer, H-E-B will begin offering Whataburger’s popular line of condiments – available for the first time at retail – at all stores in Texas and Mexico.
In addition to Whataburger’s Fancy Ketchup, Spicy Ketchup and Original Mustard, the San Antonio-based grocer will also offer Whatafries, a new product inspired by the iconic brand.
"Working together is a natural fit for H-E-B and Whataburger," said Reade Ahrens, H-E-B group VP of Grocery Procurement. "Both H-E-B and Whataburger are Texas institutions that have been serving customers for decades, we're both headquartered in San Antonio and have roots in Corpus Christi, and both our companies are committed to delivering everyday, quality products that families have come to expect."
H-E-B will offer Fancy Ketchup and Spicy Ketchup in 20-ounce bottles and Original Mustard in 16-ounce bottles with labeling that reads, "Bottled by Popular Demand," "Wake Up Your Taste Buds" and "The True Taste of a Whataburger." H-E-B’s Whatafries, a potato chip version of the French fry, cut from real potatoes, will be available in a 7.4-ounce bag this summer. Bottled condiments will not be available for purchase at Whataburger restaurants at this time.
"H-E-B aisles are about to include another Texas favorite," said Preston Atkinson, Whataburger’s CEO. "Our condiments have become nearly as popular as our famous burgers, and with so much customer demand to get their hands on our special ketchup and mustard in larger quantities, it was only logical to bottle them up and make them available first through such a well-respected retailer like H-E-B."
H-E-B operates more than 350 stores in Texas and Mexico with more than 80,000 employees.
