A can of the Blue version
Pokémon Pasta Shapes in Tomato Sauce was a product released by the H. J. Heinz Company in the year 2000. The product was made in both a Blue Version and a Red Version, each containing pasta in tomato sauce cut to the shape of various Pokémon from the corresponding games. The Blue version featured Blastoise on the label while the Red version featured Charizard. They came in cans of 420g in weight and were sold in Canada and the United States. Later on, the "Red" version of the pasta was discontinued for a "Gold and Silver" version, which contained pasta in the shapes of Generation II Pokémon.
For a limited time, collectible "trading cards" could be found on the back of the labels of the Red and Blue versions.
Both the Red and Blue versions of the pasta included Ash Ketchum as a pasta shape as well.
