Huh. Many restaurants have been doing this for years, usually calling "our secret sauce" or somesuch. I first encountered this in a small Irish bar in downtown Seattle about 16 or 17 years ago, on their battered fries. Pretty good, akshully.
Haven't seen the Heinz product though, so can't comment on it.... yet.
Did you know?
In 1920 (98 years ago!), H. L. Mencken (cynical1's forefather and mentor) foretold that we would one day elect a moron for a president. TRUE! Go look it up, really.

In addition to the Seattleites: the Utahns and Idahoans have Fry Sauce, South America has Salsa Rosada & Salsa Golf, and there's various (non-US) Cocktail Sauces. All of which are essentially the same thing, and have names that are less of a mouthful to say. Ketchunnaise, mayo bean butter ... ahem ... may've been better, but perhaps they wanted to distance themselves from Baconnaise.
To me, it sounds like potentially one of the most Scottish things ever, "How can we take a chip and make it even more deep fried?" -- that is if I wasn't aware that "orange chips" were a Black Country thing.

On the one hand, yes. Sounds super convenient and just what i need, on a burger.
However... there is something about the imperfect mixing of ketch-mayo, that has its own unique charm. And, if you put ketchup on one side, and mayo on the other, then they dont mix, till they get to your mouth, which is its own magic.
I remember every little thing...as if it happened only yesterday. I was barely seventeen, and I once killed a boy with a Fender guitar. I don't remember if it was a telecaster or a stratocaster, But I do remember that it had a heart of chrome and a voice like a horny angel.
