Does she have a point, or did "Cookie Monster" just start the greatest "tomato-gate" scandal the world has ever seen?
That all depends who you ask, but it appears Esparza makes a valid point.
"If you hate tomatoes, but love ketchup, you are weird. #justsayin," Esparza posted to her legion of Twitter followers, quite unapologetically.
Every good cook knows it’s not enough to have the best recipe. You have to start with the best ingredients.
The best ketchup in the world begins with high-quality tomatoes that are firm, juicy and incredibly rich. With that said, there's obviously a direct correlation between ketchup and tomatoes. If you like one, technically it makes sense for you to like the other.
Despite the facts, it seems at least some fight fans were rubbed the wrong way by Esparza's statement on tomatoes.
“@UGKyle: @CarlaEsparza1 i am one of those people” I don't get it!!! Lol," she tweeted.
Three hours since Esparza unleashed the beast on Twitter, she had not yet apologized. However, she might not need to.
Esparza makes a valid point by saying ketchup connoisseurs should also enjoy a good tomato.
In almost all leading ketchup brands, tomatoes are utilized as a main ingredient alongside vinegar, sweetener and an assortment of seasoning.
Seasonings vary by recipe, but commonly include onions, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, garlic, and celery.
That said, ketchup supporters who can't enjoy a nice, ripe tomato should reevaluate their diet and philosophy on life.
Getting back to Esparza, fight fans will be happy to learn she still loves cookies.
“@BrandonBoles: @CarlaEsparza1 but you LOVE cookies!!! :-)” this is very true!" Esparza concluded.
