I'm so grossed out by this, y'all don't even know!
Heinz has announced they will begin selling a new product: Mayochup. It's maynonnaise and ketchup mixed together in a bottle. EEW.
Listen, I know some of you weirdos like to mix your ketchup and mayo together. I have to tell you that mayo is literally the only food I outright HATE. There are things I don't care for, but I'll eat them anyway...but even that list is short. I'm really not a picky eater. But mayonnaise is the ONE food I absolutely despise with the white hot heat of a thousand suns. It's gross. It has a weird texture. I don't understand why people put it on their food.
But even if I liked mayo, I wouldn't buy this. First of all, that color. No. Secondly, are we SO LAZY that we can't just squirt a little mayo and a little ketchup on a plate? We have to buy a premixed product now? Bleh!
But mostly, my problem with mayochup is the NAME "mayochup." Say it out loud. Are you disgusted? You should be. Heinz is one of the world's most valuable and recognizable brands, and you're telling me their crack team of marketing wizards got together and the best name they could come up with was MAYOCHUP!??! It sounds like a Russian hockey player, not a condiment! They could have gone with "Ketch-o," or "Ketchonnaise." Just throwing those out there, Heinz. #getonmylevel
