The Mystery of the Poupon Ketchup Cap

Our POUPON U caps are the pinnacle of fashion for the noggin. They are grey. As in GREY POUPON CAP. For a while, they were available in white but guys invariably got them so dirty that they looked … well, dirty. So we went to grey. No other colors.

Imagine our shock when we discovered in our last shipment of POUPON U caps this single ketchup-red POUPON U cap. We immediately contacted the manufacturer. Was this meant to be a joke?

No, it was not a joke. No one in the plant would own up to this ill-advised prank. But maybe it was not a prank. It may have been the work of sinister outside forces. The International Ketchup Kartel is up to its dirty tricks!

The cap manufacturer assures us that they will NEVER again allow a ketchup colored cap to be made with the POUPON U logo. If that is the case — and we have no reason to doubt their promise — then this is the ONLY ketchup-red POUPON U cap in existence. Who wants it???
