To celebrate the return of sport and the summer of Gaelic games in Ireland, Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise has launched a new limited-edition bottle – Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayo for Sam.
To mark the 70th anniversary of Co. Mayo’s last win at the All-Ireland Final in 1951, just 1,951 bottles of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayo for Sam are available to buy for €3 through the 'Heinz To Home' website.
Commenting on the new bottle, David Adams, head of Heinz Ireland, said, “Here at Heinz Ireland, we are [Seriously] impressed by the sense of pride that people have in their county colours, most notably Co. Mayo’s unyielding support and loyalty for their team."
"So, from one mayo to another, we thought it was the perfect time to throw our support behind them. And what better way than celebrating the world famous ‘Mayo for Sam’ slogan,” he added.
To coincide with the 2021 All-Ireland Football Championship, Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise announced it has launched a new competition to create the very first All-Ireland Sandwich.
Nominated by the public, the Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise All-Ireland Sandwich will contain 32 [Seriously] fillings – one from each of the 32 counties, the company explained.
“We all love eating sandwiches and a match-day sandwich eaten on our laps either in the stands or at home is an integral part of any game. So we wanted to create something special for the return of the sport this summer. The final All-Ireland sandwich will contain 32 [Seriously] delicious ingredients – held lovingly together by lashings of our delicious Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise.
“Nominated by you, each ingredient will represent the very best of Irish produce from up and down the land. From bread to cheese, gherkins and watercress, to black pudding and radishes, we want as many nominations as possible. Ultimately, we want to create the perfect halftime treat and one that can feed the entire family! I can’t wait to try it”.
The final sandwich recipe will be released ahead of the All-Ireland final in August.
