First, it was a ketchup fetish. Now Ed Sheeran has his own hot sauce

Ed Sheeran loves his ketchup so much–specifically Heinz–that he has a tattoo of a bottle on his arm. Heinz is so grateful that they once released a special edition just for him. And he did a commercial for Heinz.

Ed’s next foray into condiments is a brand of hot sauce called “Tingly Ted’s.”

“I love sauces, that’s no secret,” he says, “but the older I’ve got, the more I love and need spice with every single meal. I travel a lot so having a bottle in my suitcase wherever I go that can spice up any and every meal seemed like a good idea.”

Tingly Ted’s comes in two strengths, both vegan-friendly: Tingly and Extra Tingly. Says Ed of their taste: “Fresh lemon notes and a smoky flavour that make the red jalapeño and capsicum chillies sing, along with a mix of herbs and spices that all infuse together to create a party in your mouth.

“I’ve had them on tour with me recently to try them with all sorts of meals, and there really isn’t anything they don’t go with – except bananas. Don’t do that.”

If he uses hot sauces for every meal, he also must have a strong constitution and a high tolerance to the Ring of Fire.
