How many times have you dared to mix mayonnaise on your plate with ketchup in elementary or high school to have a "special dip" for your fries? Every generation that comes along realizes that they have invented this sauce when their ingredients mix randomly. Some speculate that it originated in the United States in the 1950s. Heinz, however, has decided to make it official by creating it Mayochup.
King of spices
Heinz is a popular company that has been around for over a century. Ketchup is known worldwide for its freshly made ketchup.
Yellow mustard, burger sauce and sweet relish are all Heinz products. They make different kinds of sauces for grilling and lately, real mayonnaise for just about everything else.
Mayochup is born
After making spices for every occasion, Heinz decided to go one step further and combine two to create an already affordable dip sauce. Instead of grabbing two different bottles and producing the perfect brew each time, Heinz got smart and decided to make life a little easier for everyone.
The lucky few who had the pleasure of being the taste testers of the new product did not agree, whether it was more on the sweet side or whether it still tastes bitter. They all agreed, it is absolutely delicious!
Twitterverse says yes
Ask someone who participates in social media, and he'll tell you twitter has questioned almost every topic. Heinz took advantage of this by making his own poll and pointing out to the public that if they got at least 500,000 yes votes for Mayochup, they would put them on shelves in the US.
want #mayochup in the shops? 500,000 votes for "yes" and we will release it to you sassy americans.

After receiving the qualifying set of "yes" votes, Heinz decided that they would do a second survey to decide where the new seasoning should be published first. The three cities in running to get that first bottles Mayochup is Culver City, California; Chicago, Illinois; and Brooklyn, New York.
No matter who gets it first, one thing is certain, the eagerly awaited sauce will certainly keep the mouth watering. The "special dip" has been an American favorite for over 50 years, and love continues to grow.
