Mayochup Is Here
What do you get when you mix mayonnaise and ketchup? Thousand Island dressing? Wrong. Russian salad dressing? Nope. Apparently, the answer is Mayochup and according to chewboom.com, Heinz will be rolling out in the US very soon.
The official name is Mayochup Saucy Sauce, but independent.co.uk notes that "Legend actually places the origins of the condiment in the 1920s in Argentina, where it’s often referred to as 'salsa golf'. According to lore, a teenager named Luis Federico Leloir was eating prawns with friends at the Mar del Plata Golf Club in the coastal city of Mar del Plata when he decided to try an experiment, Ozy recounted. Joking around with his buddies, he mixed mayonnaise and ketchup to accompany the prawns, christening the sauce 'salsa golf'."
Heinz Mayochup in squeeze bottles will be available at retailers like Walmart, ShopRite, ACME, and Amazon.
