Mayochup: Heinz Condiment-to-Be Up for Online Vote

Mayochup: Heinz Condiment-to-Be Up for Online Vote

Mayochup could become Heinz's latest condiment-to-be, if participants of an online vote say "yes."

The leading food brand is encouraging consumers to vote whether they want the pre-made blend of mayonnaise and ketchup in a bottle to be sold in the U.S.

If 500,000 people vote yes in the Twitter poll, which closes April 15, then Heinz will go ahead with the product that is available in certain parts of the Middle East Gulf, USA Today said.

"We've seen a fierce debate on Twitter, with over 200,000 already voting yes," said Nicole Kulwicki, Director of Marketing for Heinz, adding that it appeared as if there was a strong chance the condiment would launch.

"We look to America's condiment lovers to tell us if this is something they want or if they prefer to remain Heinz Mayonnaise and Ketchup purists," she said, per The New York Post.

While the concept may seem strange to some, others have been making the combination themselves for years.

"I make it every time I eat fries, burgers and even hot dogs," one consumer noted on Twitter.

"I grew up making/eating this," another said.

Others were quick to point out that Mayochup was not a new concept, but something that had been around for years.

"Just admit you were wrong and call it what it has been called in Utah since 1940, fry sauce," a Twitter user said.

The Idaho Statesman backed the claim in a report that detailed how fry sauce has been a popular choice throughout Idaho, Utah and the surrounding area.
