Remember when Heinz tried to rename Salad Cream as Sandwich Cream? Well this week it has attempted to up the sauce stakes even higher by launching a new condiment called ‘Mayochup’ in the US.
The sauce is exactly what it says on the tin – a fusion of ketchup and mayonnaise (and a few spices) in a squeezy tube. It has gone on sale in some cities across America and Heinz has hinted that the UK could well be next.
But we have questions. Like, do we even need Mayochup? Can those with a passion for merging their sauces not continue to do so of their own accord? And the slam dunk: isn’t Mayochup just a basic version of Marie Rose sauce?
Twitter users have a few queries too...
Why is it called MayoChup and not Ketcho?— Jammmin (@JamieCrxss) September 13, 2018
Wait... So it's #ThousandIslandDressing without the Relish? Is that all #Mayochup is? I mean, I like ketchup and mayo on my fries, so why not? I'm game. #EllenKMorningShow@kost1035fmhttps://t.co/NkwYmLwCxK— Nick Pagliochini (@NickPagliochini) September 17, 2018
WHY IS THIS A THING?
JUST MAKE MAYOCHUP YOURSELF.
ALSO ITS NOT CALLED MAYOCHUP ITS CALLED SPECIAL SAUCE OR SPREAD
