Mayonnaise is one of those things that you either love or hate – there’s no middle ground.
The thick sauce made from oil, egg yolk, and either vinegar or lemon juice can be added to cakes to make them moist, brushed onto sandwiches to make them extra tasty, or simply used for dipping stuff in.
But the internet virtually gagged when American condiment brand Hellmann’s, best known for its Mayonnaise, urged its fan base to put the eggy sauce in their coffee.
The company shared the controversial idea on Twitter where it said: “Mayo in your coffee. That’s it, that’s the tweet.”
Nope, that wasn’t a typo.
Mayo in your coffee.
It’s called having a sophisticated pallet.
