SALT LAKE CITY – Ketchup maker Heinz is introducing a “new product” to America.
“Mayochup,” a combination of mayonnaise and ketchup was talked about in a tweet from Heinz on Wednesday. But if you ask Utahns, it is something they’ve had for generations.
Reaction from Utahns was pretty universal.
Heinz was accused of cultural appropriation:
There was a call to arms (and political leaders responded) to defend Utah’s claim to “fry sauce.”
Of course, fry sauce isn’t just ketchup and mayo. There’s spices, other sauces, and juices mixed in, too. Everyone has their own uniquely Utah recipe.
