The latest condiment craze hits Canadian shelves for a limited time
TORONTO, May 6, 2019 /CNW/ - Mayo or Ketchup? Canada - now you can have both. After months of craving the delicious sauce only available outside Canada, Kraft Heinz is bringing MAYOCHUP north of the border while supplies last. Canadians hoping to try the trend and stock up on the ultimate condiment are encouraged to make a mad dash to their local grocery store, because MAYOCHUP is here for a limited time, and once it's gone - it's gone.
MAYOCHUP, which combines the delicious taste of HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD Mayonnaise, Heinz Ketchup and a special blend of spices, divided the Internet when it launched in September last year, and Canadians couldn't wait to weigh in on the debate.
"After seeing the excitement MAYOCHUP generated with Canadians when it launched in the U.S., we knew we had to bring MAYOCHUP to Canada," said Brian Neumann, Brand Manager, Kraft Heinz. "MAYOCHUP is the ultimate combo condiment for all occasions – dipping fries, making a sandwich or dressing a burger. MAYOCHUP is here for a limited time, and we're excited for Canadians to try it and make it a staple at BBQs, cottages and dinner tables this summer."
What is the MAYOCHUP movement all about? The new condiment hit the U.S. last fall following a viral Twitter campaign that crowd-sourced the name from a series of saucy suggestions. The debate raged online for months and, love it or hate it, everyone had to try the latest condiment craze. For Canadians, the hunger for MAYOCHUP has been brewing and they can finally dip in.
From May 6 while supplies last, Canadians from coast-to-coast hoping to get lucky can search their local Loblaws, Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Zehrs, No Frills, Food Basics, Metro, Co-Op, Overwaitea Foods, and Sobeys, subject to availability. Available in 560 mL bottles, it's the perfect squeeze for summer barbecues. And while you can't always put a price on love, if you had to, it's $4.49.
