Yes, you did read that correctly.
It’s going to be a Paddy Day like no other this year.
Not because of coronavirus, but because Heinz has launched a special shamrock flavoured mayonnaise in honour of everyone’s favourite snake-themed holiday, of course.
The limited edition Good Shamrock Mayo is a mix of Heinz’ classic mayo with shamrocks grown in the fields of Co. Kerry. And yes, it is green.
Unfortunately for all you shamrock lovers out there, there are only 75 of these glorious tubs available. The good news, however, is that you don’t need to search far and wide to buy one – you can just win one online.
Heinz announced the limited edition celebratory product today over on their Instagram, and encouraged anyone who wants to get their hands on a pot to enter their comp.
Shamrock-grower, James O’Leary, fromIrish Plants International, said: “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.”
He went on: “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.”
