Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Hellmann's Snack Sauces
Posted: 17:15 Tue 28-10-2003. Price: 1.49. Location: Sainsbury's, Luton. Sub-flavours: Burger, Curry, Saucy Chip Dip, Hot 'n' Spicy Tomato. Nutritional unusualness: Burger sauce contains anchovies!.
"Saramond" succinctly reports: Burger sauce is gorgeous, just like Big Mac sauce!

......and the tantalisingly titled Saucy Chip Dip isn't bad either, containing as it does mayonnaise, mustard, parsley, egg yolk, citric acid and "Leek Powder". Plus: top marks to Hellman's for positioning the bottle upside-down as well as clearly marking its ideal "squeeze point", though the Spicy Chip Dip's thinly veiled threat "One dollop and you're done for" is perhaps taking things a bit far. Look out for a lot of price activity on this range (they were just 74p/ bottle in Osterley Park Tesco), making it well worth testing whether you find each one yummy or disgusting for yourself. In other news: Heinz are rumoured to be fighting back soon with their own invention of Low Carbohydrate Ketchup, causing scientists to once again consider redrawing their tried-and-tested Table of Condiments That Periodically Go Bad.

Comment: This stuff is great, and it really does taste just like Big Mac sauce which can only be in it's favour. And it tastes just as good on chips. Or beans. As I just found out.

Comment: i have finally read the condiment table i have to take issue with bacon bits never going out of date. as any fule kno' they are highly susceptible to ambient moisture.

Comment: I just love burger sauce although I have hellmans burger sauce it does not taste like JJ food service burger sauce. I think everybody should make a petition for it to be released in big chain stores like Sainsbury's and Tesco's. ILL POST THE PETITION ON MY SITE. tHANKS EVRYBODY AND BYE.

Comment: Love the burger sauce. Goes very nicly with cheesey beens on toast which is a slightly odd ( due to the fact that you dont generally have burger sauce on beens on toast with cheese ) but nice snack ( if not burnt ). p.s haha i burnt a pan of baked beans lol.

Comment: does anyone know any other make of burger sauce and where to buy it?
Posted: 00:42 Tue 13-Mar-2007 by "Tom" # permalink comment
Comment: This is very strange. I noticed about a year ago that the supermarket "own brands" of Burger Sauce (eg Morrisons) were no longer available. Now you cannot find any Hellmanns either. This was gorgeous stuff! - why have they stopped making it? Was it just not selling well enough, or did McDonalds sue them for copying their Big Mac sauce?
Posted: 20:52 Tue 13-Mar-2007 by "Marquez" # permalink comment
Comment: Just use hot sauce in your burgers, like Tabasco, Encona or Branston jalapeno relish

Comment: i emailed hellmans yesterday regarding the burger sauce, they have emailed back saying they have stopped making it, as not enough demand!!!!!!!!!!! now trying everywhere to get any kind of burger sauce

Comment: Try Co-Op superstores. It's still on the shelves in two Co-Ops near me, I just went and bought 2 bottles.

Comment: YES, we used to buy Hellmans Burger Sauce, but, now, Tesco/Morrisons/Asda all stopped selling it . . and NONE OF THEM DO ANY OTHER BURGER SAUCE ?!?!?!?

Comment: i ended up buying a big bottle of burger sauce from my local kebab shop :)

Comment: I my friend Marie has had the same trouble and has rung up Hellmans. They said it had been delisted but suggested that if people ring them. Then it will help to get it back on the shelves as they will realise how much in demand it is.

Comment: It's so depressing!! My friend managed to get a bottle of burger sauce on special offer in waitrose - but it is no where to be seen in stores now! Maybe there is somewhere we can get it on mail order - other countries etc?

Comment: I bought Ainsley Harriots burger Mayonnaise the other day from tesco extra and i must say it is bloody awful! It is being discontinued thankfully.

I have never seen the hellmans version. Where do our kebab shops get it from? Bookers maybe makro?

Comment: Marks and Spencers do a burger mayonnaise for the summer, just started stocking it so maybe its worth a try.

Comment: I can't believe ther are so many other people in distress. Have looked for Hellman's burger sauce for ages and, like you all, have had no success. Can't even find an alternative in Makros. Surely somebody must realise there is a hole in the market.....

Comment: I really need some Hellmann's burger sauce! I ran out the other day! What will I do!!!
Posted: 17:01 Sun 13-May-2007 by "Wolfy" # permalink comment
Comment: I have been trying to find some burger sauce for the last four months since I ran out of Hellman's. Absolutely gutted to find they have stopped making it due to lack of demand!

Perhaps we all need to e-mail them and ask for them to start making it again - need to find the e-mail address...

I just discovered a wholesaler having spotted a BIG bottle of burger sauce at a burger van and made a note of their name. They have a web site and may well sell online...


Are they our salvation?!

Comment: I found this website where you can order the proper hellmanns burger sauce! The only problem is the shipping (£5.99 for 2nd class) but if you really miss it, it will be worth it! (maybe buy a few bottles!)
