Heinz’s “Mayochup” Has Another Meaning (It’s Naughty)

Heinz has egg on its corporate face after finding out that the name of its condiment, “Mayochup”, has a most unpleasant meaning in the Cree language.

What was supposed to be a cute combination of Mayonnaise and Ketchup, “Mayochup” practically named itself! On the Heinz website, the company promotes the pairing as “something surprisingly delicious.”

But thoseĀ  who speak Cree point out that in their language, the mayo part means poop (but it starts with a sh, and the chup part means facial area. Put the two together, then ask yourself: does that really sound appetizing?
