No disrespect intended to any of the other condiments listed, but I just don't see how ketchup couldn't be the greatest of the all. "Hey, pass me the _______ for my fries/burger/meatloaf, etc." There's only one answer.

Also, in today's culture, ranch dressing should be on the list of consideration.

I'm from the Seinfeld age, and everyone knows the episode where they discover that Salsa is the most popular condiment. Three Must-See-TV points to the person who correctly identifies WHY salsa is the most popular condiment.

And for the record, the answer to the op is ketchup. It was always be ketchup.

I thought of putting bacon in the poll options, but it seemed too much of a slam-dunk.

I'm a big fan of both of those, but we're taking about KETCHUP, the foundation condiment, the condiment against which all others are judged.

First of all, the word is mayonnaise not mayo.

Second of all, why do you only mention yellow mustard?

Third of all, why is brown sauce not included?

I struggled with my vote initially, but Mayo got my vote for this very reason, it is foundational. So much is built upon it, it goes first among condiments on most all my sandwich/burger constructions.

Ketchup, the adulterized fish sauce from England, is a wonderful condiment, but there are places it does not belong. It has no place on a hot dog. Hot Dogs do not require Mayo, but Mayo can enhance a hot dog. Ketchup belongs on some seasoned fries and tots, fried chicken livers and salmon patties, but it is merely a top three/five condiment along with many variations of good mustard. My wife and one son will not eat scrambled eggs without ketchup and Preston loves it on Ruffles potato chips. But no one in the house will each a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich with any condiment other than mayo first.

I suspect this poll may be skewed by voters who are not fat enough to be experts, or at least not expert enough to be fat.

If by brown sauce, you mean a derivative of one of the five mother sauces of French cooking, then you have ventured into the realm of gravy. And, gravy, sir, is a food group unto itself.

My pathological hatred of mayonnaise (mayonnaise to AMJ) probably precludes me from ever becoming fat enough to be an expert. I abhor mayonnaise in all of its forms. I detest aioli. Salmon mousse is for the birds. Lobster mayonnaise is an abomination unto the Lord. Mayonnaise and bologna is the sign of the low normal, the man condemned by his own choices to a mundane existence. "Mayonnaise and white bread" was the insult used to condemn a sweeping swath of humanity in my happy childhood home.

That said I do like a good tuna fish sandwich. So I guess that shows a touch of hypocrisy, even if I do use Miracle Whip. By definition, faux mayonnaise must be worse.

Ketchup is useless condiment

Mayonnaise is good, Tabasco is great on almost everything.

Nori Furikake is probably the best condiment ever. Yes, Nori

Someone asked why brown sauce isn't included? I mentioned it already - HP Sauce in the UK, or is that also elsewhere in the world? Or are we talking the same brown sauce? Whatever, it's there on my list.

Brown Sauce is an English sauce that comes in a squeeze bottle like ketchup.
