Since ketchup is liquid, why do we say "I eat ketchup" instead of "I drink ketchup"?

The same goes for mayonnaise and all sauces in general.

  • Do you eat soup or drink it?

    OK... Now put the soup in a bowl or a glass... Is it a drink?

    • I've seen some people drinking the soup from the bowl. without spoon. So I guess here we'd say "drink"... if we use a spoon, then "eat".

  • because you don't normally drink ketchup from the bottle you put it on food and eat it. besides its more of semiliquid anyway
