Heinz launches world’s first green shamrock mayo to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Heinz has announced it's launched the world's first green shamrock mayo to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17,

The limited-edition [Seriously] Good Shamrock Mayo is made with real shamrock grown in the fields of Co. Kerry, Ireland.

However, you'll have to have the luck of the Irish to get your hands on it.

Sadly, there are just 75 jars are available nationwide.

The mayonnaise is described as a "deliciously light twist on a classic".

A description from Heinz reads: "Our chefs have blended Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise – made with quality ingredients and free-range eggs – with ACTUAL shamrock grown in the fields of Co. Kerry, to make a luscious green-hued and tasty mayo."

The description adds: "Heinz is launching [Seriously] Good Shamrock Mayo to bring a sprinkle of Irish cheer to foods traditionally loved on the Emerald Isle – be it brown bread, sandwiches, or even dolloped onto delicious chunky chips."

Talking about the launch, Maria Jantchi, Marketing Manager at Heinz UK, said: "When St. Patrick’s Day 2020 celebrations were cancelled all around the world last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we set about thinking how we could make this St. Patrick’s Day 2021 one to remember.

"And after a year of planning, testing and tasting, we are thrilled to present the first of its kind … it’s green, it’s creamy and it’s utterly delicious!

"It’s Heinz [Seriously] Good Shamrock Mayo. The most St. Patrick’s Day-y Mayo possible. We’re dying to hear what people think and what people serve it with. Who knows? Maybe it’ll be in stores in time for 2022 celebrations!"

Meanwhile, shamrock-grower James O’Leary from Irish Plants International, added: "Our shamrock has been carefully cultivated in Ballinaskelligs, Co Kerry, one of the greenest places in the southwest of Ireland, where the Irish language is still spoken fluently by the locals.

"We have been proudly growing our shamrock for 31 years, and supply the Taoiseach with the symbolic bowl of shamrock that is given to the President in the White House as a symbol of the countries’ friendship on St. Patrick's Day.

"Some might say ours is the most famous shamrock in the world, and who are we to argue with them!

"We were delighted to provide the shamrock to Heinz for this truly unique campaign to celebrate our Irish culture and we hope that anyone lucky enough to win a jar can taste the love and care we have put into nurturing our shamrock."
