Hey Matt:

What makes fancy ketchup so fancy? Can you get plain ketchup?

-- Bobby, the net

There are officially designated fancy tomatoes, but no fancy ketchup. Fancy ketchup is plain ordinary ketchup in a package that says "fancy ketchup." Ketchup would probably not be made from fancy tomatoes, since they would be the ones that are big and juicy and sold in the produce department. Fancy ketchup does not exist. Packages that say "fancy ketchup" do exist. But as I've said before, the fastest way to find something is to say in print that it there's no such thing.
