I’m absolutely in love with this machine, and I haven’t even seen one yet. First of all, I love the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine. It’s fun to make interesting new drink combinations to go with your burrito. Cherry Sprite? Sure, why not. Well, here comes the same thing, but with dipping sauces. Imagine getting a large order of fries with your burger and then creating six different sauces to dip your fries in. From the creators of Mayochup, here comes a machine for just that. it’s the Heinz Remix.
The company press release says, “HEINZ REMIX is taking personalized sauces to new heights, creating a first for the sauce and foodservice category. The free-standing machine is touchscreen operated, enabling consumers to first select from a range of ‘bases’ – currently HEINZ Ketchup, Ranch, 57® Sauce, and BBQ Sauce – then personalize further with one or more ‘enhancers’ – currently Jalapeño, Smoky Chipotle, Buffalo, and Mango – at their preferred intensity level (low, medium, high).”
When will they be available?
The new machines, which should start showing up in restaurants later this year, promise over 200 different sauce combinations. The thought of dipping fries into a Smoky Chipotle Mango BBQ Sauce certainly has me interested. Jalapeño Ranch with intensity set to ‘high.’ You see where I’m going. The Heinz Remix machine will also keep track of the flavor combinations being created, potentially using that info for new sauces to sell in stores. So experiment away.
And that’s why I referenced the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine when they announced the Heinz Remix. Making all these new creations is fun. And Heinz has decided that the fun shouldn’t just be limited to drinks.
