French's® Celebrates Summer with Limited-Edition Ketchup Cotton Candy

TORONTO, June 26, 2023 /CNW/ - What: Tomorrow, French's® debuts French's Ketchup Cotton Candy, a new limited-edition treat, to celebrate the first week of summer. Available while supplies last at popup locations beginning Tuesday, June 27th, the flossed treats are made in collaboration with Treats for Us, a local Canadian confectionary specializing in carnival favourites.

Available in Vancouver, BC, Toronto, ON, and Leamington, ON this week only, French's Ketchup Cotton Candy perfectly pairs the flavour of French's Ketchup, featuring 100 per cent Canadian tomatoes, before transforming to finish with the sweet, nostalgic taste of cotton candy. To honour shared Canadian heritage, for every tub of cotton candy given away, French's will donate the equivalent of two meals to Food Banks Canada to address food insecurity in Canada, expanding the partnership that began in 2015.
