Yesterday, the existence of Mayochup was revealed, and fry lovers everywhere rejoiced. Heinz took notice, and now their Middle Eastern mayonnaise-meets-ketchup condiment may be coming stateside.
In a tweet posted by Heinz Ketchup US, the company put the decision into the hands of customers. "Want #mayochup in stores? 500,000 votes for yes and we'll release it to you saucy Americans," the tweet reads.
As of publication, the poll had 455,278 votes, 55 percent in favor of the creation and 45 percent saying "nah, I'll make my own." If you haven't yet voted, do your civic duty and get to Twitter ASAP. Our fries depend on it!

Mayonnaise and Ketchup are two of the best condiments known to man. Fact. And anyone who says otherwise is obviously wrong.
When it comes to these two staples of the modern man's diet, there's only one brand that does it right, and that's Heinz.
But now the brand is confusing the internet with a hybrid of the two sauces, that they are calling 'Mayochup'. Clever.
You see, mixing mayonnaise and ketchup is hardly anything new, and everyone has done it at some point in their lives (read: at least once a week), so why did Heinz feel the need to create a whole new thing? Surely that's peak laziness, people?
I’m finding Mayochup a deeply upsetting concept.- Talia Pick (@Talia_pick) April 10, 2018
Some people feel vindicated by the endorsement of what is sometimes a controversial mash-up:
Shout out to all of you punks who always said "Ewwwwwww" BEHOLD... #mayochup ]]>🍟🍔💁🏻
