Tell us when…

Look, we’ve done a ton of food episodes on Ranked but we have often glossed over the unsung hero that are condiments. Condiments can make or break a food by giving it that little extra zing that you were missing. It can also turn a random assortment of green leafs into a helluva tasty salad or a dry piece of chicken into a mouth watering delight. So join Tuong and The Sonar Network/That’s How I Remember It¬†‘s Michael Mongiardi, Raul Delgado, and John Richardson as they give you a nice heaping dollop of fun in the form of Top 5 Condiments!

Ground Rules

We are basing our ground rules off the definition below:

“A ¬†condiment¬†is a¬†spice,¬†sauce, seasoning, or preparation that is added to food, after cooking, to impart a specific¬†flavor, to enhance the flavor,[1]¬†or to complement the dish. A¬†table condiment¬†or¬†table sauce¬†is more specifically a condiment that is served separately from the food and is added to taste by the diner.”

  • Salt doesn’t count as a nomination because it would just win and that’s no fun.
  • Versatility can be a factor
  • If the condiment is a food that you can enjoy on it’s own, then it probably doesn’t count in most cases. (ie Cheese)
  • Nominations have to be specific in most cases (some exceptions). For example, if you nominate Mayonnaise that would not encapsulate all kinds of mayo based condiments.
