Get your french fries ready: Heinz is set to roll out its newest condiment in the United States very soon.

The latest addition to the company's product lineup is Mayochup. It's comprised of -- you guessed it -- mayonnaise and ketchup.

Back in April, Heinz announced it would release Mayochup if enough people voted for it in a Twitter poll. Nearly 931,000 weighed in, with 55% voting in favor of the "Pass the Heinz Mayochup" option.

Want #mayochup in stores? 500,000 votes for "yes" and we'll release it to you saucy Americans.

Heinz isn't done asking condiment lovers to take part in democracy on social media. The company is selecting a city to be among the first to try Mayochup based on the number of tweets it gets. You can tweet using the hashtag #Mayochup plus the name of the destination to get your city's name in the running. The city with the most tweets will be visited by a food truck loaded with fries and Mayochup samples.

#Mayochup is here. And these saucy cities Tweeted #Mayochup the most. Vote for your city by Tuesday, 9/18 by 11:59 PM CST to be among the first to taste it.

The contest runs until Tuesday night. So far, it looks like the top contenders are Chicago, Brooklyn and Culver City, California.

If our area doesn't win, fear not: You won't have to mix mayo and ketchup by hand for too much longer. Delish reports that Mayochup will be available nationwide at Walmart and Amazon in a 16.5-ounce squeeze bottle by the end of the month.
