Heinz is bottling a sauce made by combining mayonnaise and ketchup. The product, which isn’t currently available in the United States, is called Mayochup. And though it might be new for Heinz, the sauce – also known as salsa rosada, salsa golf, MayoKetchup, and other names – goes way back. Luis Federico Leloir is credited with creating salsa golf in the 1925 at a golf club (hence the name) in Argentina, decades before he went on to win a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Between some suggesting better alternatives to the name MayoChup to others criticizing the color (not everyone wants equal parts of mayo and ketchup) to pointing out it’s already been bottled (Goya’s already been there, done that), people have a lot of thoughts. And it is easily the most entertaining corner of the internet RN. Check out some reactions below.
