Mayonnaise is better than ketchup and that's official
Remarkably, Hellmann's Mayonnaise has been voted Britain's favourite saucy condiment in a new poll, which means that mayo is now officially much better than Heinz Tomato Ketchup (which surely isn't nearly as good as Daddies ketchup... which sounds like a troubling euphemism).
The survey of 1,000 people saw mayonnaise topping the poll with 23% and Heinz Ketchup bagged 22% of the vote. Clash of the titans, clearly.
In 3rd and 4th were HP Brown Sauce and Coleman's Mustard respectively with Branston Pickle coming in at number five.
The poll, conducted by NetVoucherCodes.co.uk, saw Daddies Brown Sauce, tartare sauce, malt vinegar, Heinz Salad Cream and horseradish doing rather well.
A spokesperson for the survey said: "We all like a good sauce so it is interesting to see what the nation voted as its favourite. It was surprising to see that Heinz Ketchup didn't win."
"A couple of respondents had put down Marmite as their favourite condiment. However, these we disqualified on the count of Marmite being a spread."
Nice to see the organisers taking this as seriously as it needs to be. However, sod the lot of these because everyone knows that gravy is king.
