Today’s post is going to be something a bit different. Normally I talk about something that can be debatable. For years people say that mayo just belonged on sandwiches and not mixed with ketchup let alone made into a dip with fries. There Is also a debate about do wendy’s fries belong in their frost or Coffee vs. Tea? Day vs. Night? I could keep going but today’s post isn’t about debatable things. Today’s blog as you can tell by the title is about The new Heinz Mayochup. If you don’t know what Mayochup is it’s mayo+ketchup and you marry them together and you get a happy union of mayochup.
If you’re anything like me, your order of fresh-out-the-fryer fries, your fast food fries or your homemade fries might feel incomplete without a generous squirt of both ketchup and mayo. After all, swirling the fresh spuds into both the creamy mayonnaise and tangy ketchup makes for a mean special sauce. Now, Heinz debuted a squeezable jar that skips the stirring and packs both sauces into one dubbed Mayochup.
But is the genius hybrid as stellar as it sounds? Nutritionally-speaking, not so much. The spread boasts
160 calories, 16 grams of fat (2.5 grams of saturated fat), 170 milligrams of sodium, 4 grams of carbs (0 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar), and 0 grams of protein per two tablespoons.
However, it’s the ingredient list that concerns me more than the nutrition label. Mayochup is crafted with inflammatory soybean oil—which is the first and most abundant ingredient—as well as high fructose corn syrup, potentially cancer-causing potassium sorbate, and sodium benzoate, which has been linked to ADHD. What’s more, Heinz doesn’t actually use real, whole tomatoes in its ketchup, but relies on tomato concentrate.
While Mayochup sounds like a fry lover’s dream, in theory, there are better ways to get your saucy fix. I recommend skipping this bottled version and opting for making your own with better ingredients. Grab a tablespoon of Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo for a vegan spin on the sauce or go the traditional route with Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise and pair it with a clean ketchup. I like low-sugar options such as Sir Kensington’s Ketchup. Now, get dunking!
