Many condiment fans have eagerly been awaiting the arrival of Heinz’ controversial ‘Mayochup’ to UK supermarkets – and prayers across the nation have finally be answered.
The condiment favourites have formally announced the marriage of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise and Heinz Tomato Ketchup by placing a post in the Times’ births, marriages and deaths section.
However, rather than being called ‘Mayochup’ as it was formally known, the trademark was unavailable to use in Europe, so Heinz have confirmed it will become known as Heinz Saucy Sauce.
The controversial product will officially be launched exclusively to Tesco on August 23 and will retail at £2.69 for a bottle.

And people across the UK shared their delight at the revelation on Twitter.
‘This is going to be a game changer,’ wrote one, while another penned: ‘I’m so excited I can’t sleep.’
A further added: ‘OMG I haven’t even tried ranch yet and now THIS saucy sauce witchcraft? I feel I need to get with the Heinz programme.’
Back in 2018, Heinz announced that Mayochup – the perfect combination of mayonnaise and tomato ketchup – was being launched in the US.
The world quickly fell in love with the concept of this sauciest of sauces, the very same one that you’ve been mixing on your plates since childhood, just made by the experts.

In fact, the product’s success across shores was so popular, hybrids including ‘Mayomust’ (mayonnaise and mustard) and ‘Mayocue’ (mayonnaise and barbecue sauce) quickly followed.
In the UK, the option to launch this curious condiment was put in the hands of the great British public via a Twitter poll.
Thousands of Brits voted ‘Yes, get me Mayochup right now please’, and now, thanks to the public, the union of iconic sauces will make it onto UK supermarket shelves.
