Heinz Mayocue Sauce (Asda) By @Cinabar

Heinz Mayocue Sauce

Mayocue, what kind of name is that? I’m not a fan of these portmanteau words, to be honest, mainly because my spell checker insists on underlining them in red. However, if Heinz Mayocue Sauce is a combination of mayonnaise and barbecue sauce, I think I’m still in. I really enjoy both sauces and couldn’t wait to give this a try. Tonight we had chicken and chips with our dinner and decided to use this as a dip on the side.

I poured some out, and it was runnier than usual mayonnaise, but not by any means thin. I gave the Heinz Mayocue Sauce a taste, and it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. The predominant taste was a smokey flavour, followed by the creaminess of mayonnaise. This was a nice combination, and it worked with chips dipped in. As much as I liked the sauce, I think to qualify as a barbecue sauce, it needs some sweetness from a hint of tomato or something like that. Barbecue sauces aren’t all about the smoke. Maybe this should have been called Mayosmoke, but perhaps not! I would still buy this Heinz Mayocue Sauce again, though, as it went ever so well with chicken and chips.
