“I’ve been a fan of ketchup for as long as I can remember, and the thick, rich flavor of Hunt’s ketchup delivers every time,” Mahomes said in a statement released by Hunt’s. “I’m thrilled to be joining the Hunt’s team.”
Mahomes became popular as a potential ketchup spokesman after talking about his cravings for the tomato-based product. His comments about liking ketchup with his steak were the start. The mix of ketchup with mac and cheese put him in a different category.
“People seem to think that’s a weird thing,” Mahomes said recently about putting ketchup with mac and cheese. “Some people think that’s disgusting, but it’s good to me.”
