Mayochup Is Coming

September 20, 2018

Heinz is finally bringing their ketchup-plus-mayo condiment Mayochup to the U.S. this month.

A 16.5-ounce squeeze bottle will sell for the suggested price of $3.49. When Heinz announced that it was bringing “mayochup” to the masses, there was a massive internet uproar. The condiment combination of ketchup and mayonnaise, already sold in some overseas markets, was something many people felt did not need to be re-established, as it was already a product called “fry sauce.” The name “mayochup” was so hotly debated that Heinz even polled Twitter asking users for a better name.

For a while, it seemed as though “tomayo” might replace the Heinz moniker, but that was in April; now it’s September and Heinz is still releasing Mayochup (with its original name) to the U.S. The condiment is already on some store shelves.
