Mayochup became an Internet sensation earlier this year when the Twitterverse discovered that Heinz was marketing the blend in the Middle East and started asking for it here.

“After seeing the unprecedented passion surrounding this product, including the nearly one million votes on social media and 500,000 votes in favor of bringing it stateside, launching Mayochup in the U.S. was a no-brainer,” said Nicole Kulwicki, director of marketing for Heinz, in a statement.

Looks like Heinz has spiced up the blend a bit. According to the ingredient list, Mayochup contains (in order of prevalence) soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, tomato concentrate, distilled white vinegar, egg yolks and small amounts of salt, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon juice concentrate, paprika extract (for color) plus various preservatives and other polysyllabic additives.
