Heinz Headquarters

Which is great if you're a ketchup fan! I was told that when they're processing the tomatoes, the whole town smells like them! Who knows. There was actually half an aisle in the grocery store dedicated to ketchup. I nearly took a picture. Now I wish I had so I could post it! Drat. The tourist booth is also shaped like a giant tomato.

Tourist Booth

Update: I've returned and photographed the tourist booth, which, by the way, never seems to be open when I visit...hmm...??
