A young boy became the subject of a huge controversy in Australia because of his odd food pairing. At a soccer game, he was caught on camera spreading ketchup on a chocolate sprinkle doughnut. A host on the Australian morning show “Sunrise” called his action “a truly disturbing crime.”

The incident polarized Australians. Some took to Twitter to either congratulate or admonish the youngster for his exploration. One Twitter user even called for the boy to be considered for a spot on a competitive cooking show.


Coming from the U.S., where we put ketchup on anything that has a level surface, we salute the Ketchup Kid and wish him well on his creative culinary endeavors.
