Heinz Mayochup is shipping to stores now and Heinz is giving one
lucky city the chance to try it first
PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 17, 2018--
The wait is over! Heinz Mayochup sauce, the delicious blend of
mayonnaise and ketchup that divided the Internet earlier this year, is
officially making its U.S. debut, and Heinz is letting America
decide who gets the first taste.
From now through Tuesday, September 18, condiment lovers can vote on
which city will get to try Heinz Mayochup before the product hits
store shelves this month. The city with the most votes on Twitter.com/HeinzKetchup_US
will be rewarded with a food truck takeover, complete with free samples
of Heinz Mayochup…and, of course, fries for dipping.
“After seeing the unprecedented passion surrounding this product,
including the nearly one million votes on social media and 500,000 votes
in favor of bringing it stateside, launching Mayochup in the U.S. was a
no-brainer,” said Nicole Kulwicki, Director of Marketing for Heinz.
“We’re excited to officially welcome Heinz Mayochup sauce to the Heinz
family of products, including ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce and our most
recent addition, Heinz mayonnaise.”
In the running to receive a first taste of Heinz Mayochup are the
three cities whose residents were most passionate on social media about
bringing Mayochup stateside earlier this year: Culver City (CA), Chicago
and Brooklyn. Fans will also be able to cast their vote for a city of
their choice. The city that receives the most votes will experience a Heinz
Mayochup food truck takeover.
Heinz Mayochup combines the delicious taste of mayonnaise,
ketchup and a special blend of spices. Available in 16.5 oz. squeeze
bottles at a suggested retail price of $3.49, Heinz Mayochup can
be purchased at most major retailers including Walmart.com.
