A new popsicle flavor is taking the internet by storm.

French’s has introduced a ketchup-flavored frozen treat, telling Canadians their “favorite condiment just got a whole lot cooler.”

Some people in Vancouver were able to sample the flavor on Thursday, with some samples doled out at Pacific Center Mall until 2:30 p.m.

But days before the trade fair, the ketchup snack was already stirring controversy on social media.

Thousands of people have commented on the company’s tweet introducing the new product, and many of the responses are as expected.

“Who thought that was a good idea?” one person asked.

“Canada just lost 50 points in the culture war between CA and the US,” tweeted another.

“This has Americans pissed off, but that’s what I’m here for,” wrote a third.

“I love ketchup as much as the next person. But this is horrible,” read another tweet, with French replying, “Tastes great trust us!”

But not everyone was totally against the idea. Some people expressed a desire to try the ketchup-flavored snack.

Others joked that with tomato juice already there, the “natural progression would be from cold to frozen.”

The company describes it as a “perfectly balanced savory tomato flavor with a hint of salty sweetness.”

French’s notes that the popsicle is made in partnership with Happy Pops and is made from 100% Canadian tomatoes.

Popsicle flavor is only available at pop-up locations for a limited time in Vancouver, Toronto and Leamington, On.

And not everything is bad. French’s says that for every lollipop given away, two meals will be donated to Food Banks Canada.
