Let’s cut to the chase: Hellmann’s is releasing a new trio of mayo flavors in the U.K. and one of them is Gravy Mayo.
Take that in for a second. A gravy mayo exists. Imagine that mixed into mashed potatoes or potato salad, slathered on a turkey and cranberry sandwich or a fried chicken sandwich with pickles, and, perhaps most importantly, imagine it with chicken tenders and fries. Now stop imagining, because if you are in the U.S., you can’t have it. It is only being released in the U.K. in April. I’ll give you a moment to cry.
Alright, let’s keep going.
It was created to unite England—a tall task for a condiment. When it comes to “chip” condiments, north and south England neatly fall into two separate camps: gravy and mayo, respectively. And they stand by those choices and defend them most fiercely. This new Gravy Mayo condiment may just be the squeeze-bottle-encased, khaki-colored champion of the people that brings the entire country of England together.
Honestly, the U.S. could really use a dose of that togetherness. Hellmann’s, you have the power! Do us next! I think I speak for all of America (and possibly Canada) when I say that Gravy Mayo may just be the thing that gets us through 2022. That is, if it ever makes its way over to this side of the pond.
