Heinz has unveiled a brand new sauce to their collection: “Mayochup,” or as Heinz would like us to call it… “Saucy Sauce”. This will be a combination of Heinz Ketchup and Heinz Mayonnaise, a perfect choice for those indecisive few…
After a successful launch in the US last year, Heinz has announced that they will be bringing “Mayochup” to British stores.
Due to trademark laws, it’s been understood that Heinz has had to change the name as a company in Europe already owns the title.
Haven’t you heard? Our two favourite sauces, [Seriously] Good Mayo and Tomato Ketchup, are now the sauciest pair in town! 🔔💍 pic.twitter.com/VsxzK3n2Y0

One Twitter user asked: ‘I’ve no idea why they’ve called it “Saucy Sauce”. For those old enough to remember, mixing Ketchup and Mayo is called A “Marie Rose”.’
Heinz was quick to respond with an explanation: ‘Saucy Sauce is saucier than all the other sauces! It is the official marriage of the flavours of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise and Heinz Tomato Ketchup’.
“Saucy Sauce” will contain 1.5g of salt and 12g of sugar per 100g, all this adding up to a total of 432 calories.
Due to the popularity of “Mayochup”, Heinz was quick to release in the US a combination of mayonnaise and mustard named “Mayomust” and “Mayocue”, a mixture of mayo and barbecue sauce. Hopefully meaning that it won’t be long until these new condiments will be landing on British shores.
“Saucy Sauce” will be available in Tesco from 23 August in a 400ml bottle for £2.69, so make sure to grab yours fast before they’re swept off the shelves!
