Damn Tomato Shortage

Today I did my civic duty: I went to Jack In The Box and ordered a large combo to get my reindeer Jack ball.

Being as the Sourdough Jack is my all-time favorite, that's what I ordered. I shrugged at the tomato shortage notice on the order board, not actually reading it. But then I ate the sandwich and realized I should have read it -- apparently at Jack In The Box, the solution to "fewer tomatoes" is "use ketchup."

While I generally love their menu, I don't know how high one has to be to make this arbitrary decision. Tomatoes taste nothing like ketchup. Ketchup tastes nothing like tomatoes. Ketchup standing in for a tomato on the Sourdough Jack? Gross. Not inedibly gross, but the flavor of the whole burger is out of whack when you have that unfamiliar sweet element.
