This year marks the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and to celebrate, HP Sauce and Salad Cream will be getting a royal makeover.
For those not in the know, Queen Elizabeth II entered her 70th year as a reigning monarch in 2022, the first time a British sovereign has been on the throne for this length of time.
Events are taking place throughout the year, which are set to culminate in a four-day long bank holiday, scheduled to take place between 2 and 5 June 2022.
To mark the occasion, food giant Heinz is renaming two of its popular condiments from ‘HP Sauce’ and ‘Salad Cream’ to ‘HM Sauce’ and ‘Heinz Salad Queen’.
The company revealed the limited edition sauces will be available in UK supermarkets from this week so people can stock up in time for the June festivities.
Anke von Hanstein, a senior brand manager at Heinz, said: “This is an extraordinary moment for the Queen and the great British public, and we want to celebrate this with two of our most well-loved and historic sauces.
“Releasing limited-edition bottles in time for the Jubilee felt like the perfect fit.
“HP Sauce and Heinz Salad Cream have been on the dining tables of Brits throughout all the Queen’s reign, bringing delicious and distinctive flavours to our favourite meals.
“We hope our customers enjoy these celebratory designs and that they add a squeeze of fun to the Jubilee celebrations, however one is celebrating.”
Her Majesty’s royal extravaganza is set to be a big one, including a live pop concert at Buckingham Palace, a carnival pageant on the streets of London, Jubilee lunches and the lighting of beacons across the world.
Pubs in England and Wales will be allowed to stay open later over the bank holiday period, and are permitted to serve right through to 1am.
Speaking in 2020, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden promised a 'celebration to remember' throughout the weekend.
"Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment – and one that deserves a celebration to remember,” he said.
"We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology.
"It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty's reign."
And if that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, you can always just drink a few pints at the pub until 1am or eat your favourite dish doused in limited edition sauces. The choice is yours.
