'Mayochup' May Already Be Changing Its Name
It’s official! Mayochup is coming to America. The results of a seemingly neck-and-neck Twitter poll are in, and Americans want Heinz to bring their exclusive mix of mayonnaise and ketchup in one bottled blend to the States. However, the name “Mayochup” is currently up in the air.
During the poll, which offered the options of “pass the Heinz Mayochup,” and “Nah, I’ll make my own,” many Twitter users responded with names that they felt better suited the mixture.
It was also hotly debated whether the combo is actually a form of “fry sauce,” a condiment made popular in Utah.
“Mayochup” as a name has become so hotly debated, Heinz is allowing people to tweet at them with new name ideas. “We heard you saucy Americans and we’re bringing you our version of the delicious duo you’ve been eating for years. Are you Team Mayochup or should we call it something else? Let us know your thoughts!” the brand tweeted.
Nicole Kulwicki, director of marketing for Heinz, even put out a statement on the matter in a press release. “We know people have combined mayonnaise and ketchup for years and they are passionate about its name. That’s why we’re asking America to share their suggestions, to ensure our version of this delicious duo gets the name it deserves.” [related]
So far the suggested names are just as wild and creative as Mayochup lovers themselves. Besides the tons of people who tweeted “fry sauce” at the account, more serious suggestions were also offered.
Whatever they decide to call it (we’re rooting for “Tomayo”), we know it will taste incredible on any of America’s 50 best french fries.
