No condiment is more polarizing than mayonnaise. Unlike hot sauce or mustard, two universally loved condiments, mayo is just so polarizing. You either love it or hate it and if it's the latter, boy do you despise it. Ketchup is another tricky condiment. Some folks love it slathered on hot dogs, hamburgers, and even macaroni and cheese. Others simply can't stand the sweeter tomato-based spread and make a point to let everyone know that tomato ketchup is, indeed, a disgrace. If you love mayonnaise and ketchup, then you'll love this news.
Heinz, the purveyor of backyard BBQ condiments, introduced a confusing and clever new sauce known as Mayochup. The color of the Mayochup sauce is slightly off-putting, but if these are your two favorite sauces, you are in serious luck. Before we get into the reactions, it's important to note that mayonnaise is a common dipping sauce for french fries and the like, especially in Great Britain.
So what did people have to say about this deeply upsetting condiment? Turns out Heinz Mayochup mayonnaise is really divisive.

This kind of sauce is known as prawn cocktail in the United Kingdom and even as Marie Rose sauce. To make it at home, mix mayonnaise, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and pepper in a small bowl. You can add cayenne pepper for an extra kick. Genius Kitchen has a great, easy recipe to make your own at home. Others just call it pink sauce and don't give it a second thought.
Arctic Circle, the maker of the Original French Fry Sauce, might push back on the idea that this a brand new idea, too, since every Midwesterner knows that Fry Sauce is indeed a 50/50 blend of mayonnaise and ketchup.
But that's not all. Kraft Heinz also came out with Kranch, a sauce mix of mayo a ranch, mayocue, mayomust, and mayoracha, a mashup of real mayonnaise and sriracha in a squeeze bottle. It's its own class of condiments for your favorite foods.
Do you mix mayonnaise and ketchup, or are these two condiments your least favorite?
