Heinz May Release 'Mayochup' Condiment in the US
Although Dubai and the rest of the Gulf states have had their hands on Heinz “Mayochup” for a little while, now the U.S. could finally be getting a taste. Mayochup, Heinz's blend of their real mayonnaise and ketchup — aka the condiment we never knew we needed but now can’t stop thinking about — could be making its U.S. debut thanks to a Twitter poll.
“Want #mayochup in stores? 500,000 votes for ‘yes’ and we’ll release it to you saucy Americans,” tweeted Heinz account followed by a poll.
The poll is still piling up votes with three days left for the final results — and it appears that the nation is somewhat divided on the tangy creamy condiment, as 55 percent of voters chose “Pass the Heinz Mayochup” and 45 percent voted “Nah, I’ll make my own.”
Still, a clear majority of the American public demands Mayochup. (Also, who are those 45 percent? Can they turn on their locations? We just want to talk for a minute…if you really think you 're better off making your own mayochup at home — good luck.)
Many Twitter users also feel that the combination is definitely called “fry sauce,” but Heinz raises a great point: What if you’re putting it on a burger?
Nicole Kulwicki, director of marketing for Heinz, said via a statement, “Mayochup is a delicious blend of Heinz Mayonnaise and Ketchup. This is a condiment for all occasions — whether dipping fries, dressing a burger, or making a sandwich. We’ve seen a fierce debate on Twitter, with over 200,000 already voting yes, it’s looking like Heinz Mayochup has a strong chance of launching! The next question at hand is the final name of this delicious combination. We know our friends in Idaho and Utah are passionate about Fry Sauce, and we’ve seen lots of other great suggestions online, so if we get to 500K YES votes, we will be giving the nation a say in our final name.”
We’ll be celebrating the (hopefully) future win by browsing the 101 best burgers in America and imagining how great they would taste topped with tangy, creamy Mayochup!
