What next? A Japanese food company has invented a new product that could be a global bestseller. The imaginative new product is sliced mayonnaise. The company believes its handy new food will catch on quickly. The slices are called "mayo sheets" in Japan. The packaging says they are a "sheet-like condiment" that is good for "easy cooking". The slices come in two flavours – spicy cod roe and tuna. They could liven up sandwiches or enhance pasta dishes.

The new product will sell in Japan for $1.80 for four slices. The company is sure consumers will love them. The social media jury is undecided. The cnet.com website wrote: "Both mayo fans and haters [wrote]…about the new slices." Gizmodo.com wrote that Americans might not "embrace" the slices. However, it added that people might be happy to use them if they are making a sandwich and they are in a hurry.
