I am not a great consumer of his soups but I know we have Heinz products in the house — if nothing else the ketchup. Obviously one of the better known names around.

Kind of funny, I always thought that Andy Warhol’s Soup Cans were that of Heinz. I just went and looked. They are not!

Ironic and sad that he died in 1919, aged 74, of pneumonia. Alas, that was before we had antibiotics. I wonder whether he was given hot soups in his last days.
