This family fave has just got an update, but who asked for it? And would you try it?!
Is this as joke?
When Heinz tweeted about Heinz Creme Egg Mayo on 1 April, most people thought it was an April Fool’s joke.
A follow-up tweet on 2 April made it clear that they weren’t playing and that this bonkers product was actually a thing.
“We weren’t kidding, Heinz Creme Egg Mayo is a thing!” their jubilant tweet read.
“Who wants to try it? OF COURSE YOU DO!” they asserted, posting a venue for foodies to attend a special whacky Heinz Creme Egg Mayo pop-up “for free samples of this crazy combo.”
When you think of it mayo does have eggs in it, so why not the chocolate kind. * coughs *

That said, while it’s most definitely a real thing, apparently, it’s not going to be a standard. So sad, too bad.
They explained that the new weirded out mayo will only be variable in the UK until stocks last and won’t be popping up elsewhere.
“If Satan was a condiment”
The good folk of Twitter had some big feelings about this combo and they were mostly confused.
“This a real thing?” one person tweeted. “Part of me is disgusted. Another part is intrigued to try it.”
“Heinz, what is this? Why is this!? What do I even do with it? Is it for sandwiches? Halp!” someone else quizzed.
“I am curled up in the fetal position waiting for you to take this back,” another mayo fan wrote.
“If Satan was a condiment. This is it,” someone accurately summed-up.
Even the Creme Egg lovers were not on side.
“I love them so much, but couldn’t try this,” one distressed Easter fan wrote.
We weren’t kidding, Heinz Creme Egg Mayo is a thing! Who wants to try it?? OF COURSE YOU DO! Come and see us at Ely’s Yard, Truman Brewery in London from 11th-13th April for free samples of this crazy combo. Only until stocks last! pic.twitter.com/3ZVehv0LJb
