With all the food hybrids that have been flying around, it was only a matter of time before mayochup became one of them. A combination of everyone’s favorite condiments, mayonnaise and ketchup, mayochup has finally hit the shelves thanks to Heinz.
While most of us do enjoy having both mayo and ketchup on our fries, this pre-mixed mashup is probably something that people feel rather strongly about (I mean, what if people like different ratios of mayo to ketchup). It has been clarified that mayochup is only available in the Middle East, however, it looks like Heinz may be toying with the idea of bringing it to the States if their Twitter poll is anything to go by.
Want #mayochup in stores? 500,000 votes for “yes” and we’ll release it to you saucy Americans.

It’s received mixed reactions, to say the least, with some people upset that it hasn’t been called fry sauce while others are certainly not impressed by ‘mayochup’ at all.
It’s called fry sauce…get it right or it’s a no from me.

Of course, there were those who were a bit too enthusiastic about the idea – we get it James, you watched Austin Powers!
