PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--America has spoken … and it wants Heinz Mayochup. After a national social-media poll drew over 500,000 votes in favor of bringing the brand’s version of the delicious duo stateside, Heinz announced today that Mayochup will make its U.S. debut this year.
The name ‘Mayochup’ has been a topic of fierce debate on Twitter, which is why Heinz is letting fans weigh in on the condiment’s final name before its official launch, at Twitter.com/HeinzKetchup_US.
“We know people have combined mayonnaise and ketchup for years and they are passionate about its name,” said Nicole Kulwicki, Director of Marketing for Heinz. “That’s why we’re asking America to share their suggestions, to ensure our version of this delicious duo gets the name it deserves.”
While waiting for Heinz Mayochup to hit store shelves, those eager to try it can make their own perfect blend using Heinz Ketchup and New Heinz Mayonnaise, made with 100% Cage Free Eggs. Heinz Mayonnaise is the newest member of the Heinz family and has a deliciously creamy texture that’s crafted to taste like homemade.
New Heinz Mayonnaise is available at retailers nationwide in 13oz. and 19oz. squeeze bottles, and 15oz. and 30oz. jars, starting at a suggested retail price of $2.98.
The launch of Heinz Mayonnaise will be supported by a comprehensive marketing campaign, beginning today, to drive mass awareness across TV, digital, print, sampling, and PR. The commercial and digital videos can be viewed here.
