It was bound to happen eventually, right?

New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo is getting into the mayonnaise business, releasing a line of “gourmet” mayo-based condiments.

The “All-Pro” mayonnaise comes in three fitting flavors: Kickin’ Buffalo, Bruisin’ Bacon, Curshin’ Chipotle.

Mayo joins a roster of other athletes trying to make the leap from the locker room to the kitchen: Justin Verlander (“Fastball Flakes”); Rob Gronkowski (“Gronk Flakes”); Pascal Dupuis (“Dupuis Dijon”); Miguel Cabrera (“Miggy’s Salsa Triple Crown Pack”); Peyton Hillis (“Redzone Salsa”); and more.

Mayo plans to donate a portion of his proceeds from his “All-Pro Mayo” to Boston Medical Center.

Dumb. He's just relabeling mayo from an existing manufacturer. I bet he couldn't name the top three ingredients in "his" mayo. Not to mention the label is tacky. Who wants to look at that dude when you're contemplating something to eat?

I expect this product will be met with the same level of success as "Dupuis Dijon". That being said a few things need to be known.

1. "portion of proceeds" is probably 1% and is a play to get people to think they are being charitable and Mayo isn't being greedy

2. The product has been bottled for years but the manufacturer offered him probably not a lot of money and just printed a new label and let it ride. Little risk and is a good stunt (they made SI)

I have been looking forward to the day that a different professional athlete starts selling orange juice flavored mayonnaise.  "O.J. Mayo"

I'd pay the $10 for the mayo but the almost $15 in shipping is ridiculous....

I hope we don't hear about him dead in a ditch 6 months from now. Those Best Foods guys play for keeps.

Curshin' Chipotle?  Does it come with a free Eff you in every bottle?

"Learn to read" comments almost never work out.  Look again at the second paragraph, second-to-last word.  "Curshin’ Chipotle", clear as day.

Look again at the picture of the Crushin Chipotle. Trolling comments almost never work out either.
