Its new ketchup and mayo hybrid is about to go on sale
Heinz is finally launching its “Mayochup” sauce in the UK in the next few weeks after confirming the news. The new condiment which is a a mixture of Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Seriously Good Mayonnaise, will be available to buy exclusively at Tesco from August 23, and will cost around £2.69.
The sauce will however not be named "Mayochup" like it is in Europe. It will instead be called “Saucy Sauce”. Trademark laws means it is unable to use the same name in Europe as another company already owns it.
After a successful launch in the US last year, Heinz launched a Twitter poll to see if there was enough interest to bring it to the UK.
Unsurprisingly, thousands of Brits voted ‘Yes, get me Mayochup right now please’, meaning that the brand has now officially managed to get the union of the two iconic sauces into British supermarkets. It confirmed in March this year that it was brining it to the UK.
The table sauce was so popular stateside that “Mayomust” – mayonnaise and mustard – and “Mayocue” – mayo and barbecue sauce – soon followed.
Thanks to the fans of Mayochup, our saucy family is growing! Which flavor mashup are you most excited to dip into?— Heinz Ketchup (@HeinzKetchup_US) March 5, 2019
Let's see how long it is until we can get those too...
