Hellmann’s Sparks Debate After Encouraging Fans To Add Mayonnaise To Coffee

The versatile mayonnaise is something many of us will consume regularly, whether that be for spreading on sandwiches or dipping their chips into.

However, social media literally went ballistic when Hellmann's (best known for its mayonnaise) urged fans to put the eggy sauce in their coffee...

They shared the controversial tweet that bizarrely read: "Mayo in your coffee.

"That's it, that's the tweet."

Users were obviously not having it at all.

One wrote: "Love you intensely, Hellmann's, but this tweet is pure violence."

Another added: "'Piss in Champagne' is also a tweet but that doesn't make it drinkable."

Another simply wrote: "Unfollowed and reported."

Whereas a final user asked a very smart question: "Well why don't you make coffee flavoured mayo, smarty pants?"

Mind blown.

The American company also put out another tweet to stir the pot...of coffee...and mayo.

They tweeted: "The benefits of putting mayo in your coffee include:

"Mayo in your coffee.

"Coffee in your mayo."

Well, for those that want to maybe give it a go, or just want to try and make their own sauce, it's pretty straight forward to make.

Still doesn't mean I can make it but hopefully you can.

Mayo usually uses three main ingredients - oil, egg yolk and lemon juice/vinegar. Although mustard and other supplements can be used.

According to BBC good food, this is how you do it: "Tip the egg yolks and mustard into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk together until completely combined.

"Whisking constantly, add a small drop of oil and whisk until completely combined, then add another drop and continue a drop at a time until the yolks and oil combine and start to thicken.

"Once you're confident the oil and eggs are coming together you can add the oil a bit more at a time, but be patient, as adding the oil too quickly will cause the mayonnaise to split and curdle.

"Once all the oil has been whisked into the eggs and you have a thick, spoonable mayonnaise, whisk in the vinegar or lemon juice and season to taste. Will keep in the fridge for two days."
