Mayonnaise fans won't have to worry about the condiment taking a sweet turn. This weekend, Heinz released a video of its culinary experts working hard in the kitchen mixing chocolate with dollops of its famous mayonnaise.
Thankfully, it was April 1st...meaning APRIL FOOLS! If you cringed and thought "eww why is this a thing?", then you have fallen for the main focus Heinz's announcement!
Check out what a Heinz spokesperson had to say. Almost convincing: "It’s hard to improve on perfection, but we think we might have done it. Mayonnaise? Seriously good! Chocolate? Really good! Chocolate Mayonnaise? Scrumptious perfection! ‘We have noticed the trend for using mayonnaise in place of eggs and oil in chocolate cakes, brownies and tarts closely over the last few years, and creating Heinz [Seriously] Good Chocolate Mayonnaise seemed like the logical focus for the culinary creators of our [Seriously] Good range. ‘Using only the best ingredients and free-range eggs, it takes chocolate mayonnaise cakes to the next level, producing a rich, smooth, deliciously moist – and of course extra-chocolatey – Easter treat.’ See? Almost convincing.
Thankfully this isn't real, guys!
