Wattie's T sauce is NOT the worst thank you Australia




Wattie's tomato sauce has unfortunately been marked joint last in an unscientific poll in Australia, voting on the best sauce or ketchup.


The poll, conducted by the Daily Mail Australia, asked people for their favorite red sauce.

Heinze ketchup was the top brand followed by Aussie brands Fountain and Rosella. 


It was not good news for Watties though who came joint last with Masterfoods tomato sauce. 


The poll sprouted a lot of talk on Twitter with MasterChef judge Matt Preston weighing in saying he prefers BBQ sauce but if pressed he likes ketchup.



Why would people dislike our beloved Watties T sauce.
