Heinz will soon debut ‘Mayochup’ in America

Last week Heinz teased all of us when they tweeted out a poll asking if Americans wanted the ketchup/mayo combo ‘Mayochup’ available in stores. Well, it turns out that was no publicity stunt and after 500,000 votes were reached the classic combo will soon be available on store shelves!

Think of all those exhausting years you spent creating the combo yourself??? Those days are no more.

We heard you saucy Americans and we’re bringing you our version of the delicious duo you’ve been eating for years. Are you Team Mayochup or should we call it something else? Let us know your thoughts! pic.twitter.com/q0PRofYOO5 — Heinz Ketchup (@HeinzKetchup_US) April 16, 2018 Want #mayochup in stores? 500,000 votes for “yes” and we’ll release it to you saucy Americans. — Heinz Ketchup (@HeinzKetchup_US) April 11, 2018

(PHOTO: @frunkkawaii/Instagram)

Okay ladies let’s be real. Trendy or not this is probably the dumbest hair fashion since over-sized scrunchies. I mean you do you realize you’re going to spend the next year getting that out right?!

And don’t we spend our whole lives trying to hide or avoid dandruff?! NOW WE ACTUALLY ARE BEGGING FOR GLITTERY DANDRUFF?!

It’s official. Coachella is not about epic artist lineups and Destiny’s Child reunions. It’s about freaking dumb fashion trends and their Instagram likes.

Ugh. Not even Head and Shoulders can fix that.

Here’s a tutorial if you feel like your life is incomplete without this look. Or you want to rock it at 97XBBQ.

A few prize Twitter reactions…

crowds at coachella clearly expended all their energy doing their hair and glitter that they had none left for the insane sets they didn’t deserve to see — ruby (@rubyobri) April 16, 2018 To the Coachella girls dousing their hair in glitter …. I’m so sorry for how long that is gunna last in your hair — megs ❃ (@megeliiizabeth) April 15, 2018 We get it You’re at Coachella and you saw the Walmart yodel boy We don’t have FOMO because I’m not trying to pick glitter out of my hair in a year So be quiet and go sit down somewhere in the desert — who? (@amberhancockbur) April 14, 2018 Coachella is just a festival with sub par musicians, of which half of the millennials that attend, have no clue who they are. But what’s more fun then getting to throw on their kimonos, and put glitter in their hair to take selfies in the desert? Let’s spend 300$ on that. — Peyton Carro (@PeytonCurran) April 16, 2018

This past Friday Taking Back Sunday announced they have parted ways with founding guitarist Eddie Reyes. The band posted the message to Facebook saying “Guitarist Eddie Reyes and Taking Back Sunday have parted ways due to personal reasons. Eddie was a founding member of the band and his contributions can be felt all along the way. John, Shaun, Mark and Adam love Eddie, wish him well in his future endeavors…” There is no solid explanation as to what the personal reasons are and nothing can yet be found on Reyes’ personal social media.

Eddie Reyes was a founding member of the group in 1999 and contributed to all seven of their studio albums.
