This Free Mayonnaise Deal Is Perfect for Anyone Craving Mayochup
For some of you out there, the mashup of mayonnaise and ketchup that Heinz wants to bring to store shelves across the country is a godsend. The condiment company is making it easier to get the stuff you’ve been making at home for as long as you can remember.
For others, Mayochup, as Heinz calls it, is blasphemy. You’re positive it will be a sad rip-off of your favorite condiment that goes by different names depending on where you’re from — mayo-ketchup in Puerto Rico, fry sauce in Utah, Russian dressing most places in between.
Then there is the small but vocal Twitter faction who thinks Heinz is genius but is taking serious issue with the name, not because they prefer a traditional name, but rather because they think “Ketchonaise” would have been a much better choice.
We won’t weigh in on who is right or who is wrong about the mashup. We’re just going to tell you that you don’t have to wait for Heinz if you want to try it yourself — and that you can try it for free if you download the Ibotta app.
Head to a participating store (be sure to check the app beforehand) and pick up either a 19 oz. squeeze bottle or a 30 oz. jar of Heinz Real Mayonnaise for $3.50 or $4.50, respectively.
Use your Ibotta app to scan your receipt, and as part of a limited-time offer, get the full amount back on the purchase of mayonnaise. If you already have ketchup at home, you’re golden. If not, use your savings to pick up a bottle of that, too.
Making your own Mayochup is just as easy as it sounds. Just combine equal amounts of mayonnaise and ketchup and you’re done with the basic sauce. You can also add garlic powder, salt, pepper and any other spice you love to make it your own.
