Heinz have launched a new Ketchup and Mayo hybrid and it’s dividing the internet

Heinz have launched a new Ketchup and Mayo hybrid but the new condiment is splitting opinion on social media.

Most people have mixed ketchup and mayonnaise at some point in their lives, and would probably agree that it’s a delicious combination.

Now food giant Heinz has decided to make things official and put a label on it – meet Mayochup.

The product was spotted by shoppers who were quick to share it on social media.

The news spread like wildfire but the feedback wasn’t unanimous and condiment lovers everywhere were split into two camps – the ones who can’t wait to try Mayochup, and the ones who’d rather it was never brought to life.

One user wrote on Twitter: ‘I’m finding Mayochup a deeply upsetting concept’; while another said on Instagram: ‘We could not be friends if you’d enjoy this. These flavour profiles are getting a little bit crazy. #Eww #MayoChup #Disturbing’.

However, others considered the new hybrid to be life-changing news. One wrote: ‘Can’t wait to try some mayochup’, while another added: ‘I hope this mayochup isn’t a joke, my life will be complete 😍’.

If you got excited about the prospect of drowning your fries in the new sauce, you’ll be disappointed to hear it’s not currently available in the UK.

According to The Sun, they’re only available in the Middle East, and when someone asked the brand directly on Twitter if they were planning to bring the creation to Britain, they replied that there are no plans at the moment.

‘So when are you going to bring mayochup to the UK?’, one user asked, to what Heinz replied: ‘No plans as yet Dave. Will make the team aware you have been asking though.’
