We come baring yet more good news for pickle addicts. Branston is launching a pickle flavoured mayonnaise, and we have a funny feeling it’s about to become a lot of people’s obsession.
The condiment is being dubbed Branstonnaise, and is available in both Sainsbury’s and ASDA in the UK, now.
At a RRP of £1.99, shoppers get a choice of a jar with small chunks of pickle stirred through it, or a smooth mayo, which just offers Branston’s beloved pickley flavour.
Perfect for dolloping generously into a burger or sandwich, pimping out a grilled cheese or dunking chips into, both versions of the Branstonnaise are a must-have for any lover of all things pickle.
After discovering the jars in their local ASDA, food blog @NewFoodsUK shared the news with their followers – and it’s safe to say they were as excited as we are.
“Heaven,” said one person as they came across the new product.
“Been putting Branston and mayo together for years so excited about this!,” wrote another.
As is always the way when pickle (or mayo) is discussed, there were some who were less keen on the idea.
“We stray further from the grace of God. He has abandoned us,” joked a fellow Instagram user.
As a fourth simply wrote: “Christ sake”.
You can’t please everyone, right?
In other pickle related news, did we tell you about the candle now on sale from Vlasic?
The candle is actually dropping today (14th November) to mark National Pickle Day. Partnering with candle brand Candier by Ryan Porter, the 100 percent wax candle looks the spit of a jar of Vlasic Original Dill Wholes – and would ya believe, it smells like one, too?
