Are mayonnaise slices the best thing since sliced bread?
Do you find that the issue with mayonnaise is that it is just too spreadable? Would you rather it was a solid fishy sheet that you placed on your sandwich? Well, you're in luck!
A Japanese food company, Bourbon, have invented American cheese-like mayo slices that are set to hit markets in Japan in March.

We have now entered The Age of Mayonnaise Slices, as was foretold by my Japanese ancestors.

Soran News explains that the range is a part of Bourbon's Katan Cooking, or simple cooking, line-up. The slices come in multiple sweet and savoury flavours.
There are two salty offerings: one is tuna-mayo and the other is mayonnaise and mentaiko, or cod's roe. They are ideally shaped for ultimate sandwich covering, ensuring that no area of the bread is without moisture and flavour.

If you're more a sweet-tooth, Bourbon are also re-releasing their - admittedly, far more appetising offering- sliced chocolate, with some slight tweaks to make it even richer than before. They recommend slapping a choco-slice on a piece of warm toast with some banana - transforming your average breakfast into an incredible makeshift crepe.
People on social media have reacted very strongly to the idea of slices of mayonnaise. One person Tweeted that the idea of sliced mayo was "cursed," while another said: "Sliced mayo is for literally the laziest people on Earth."
If you're one of those people and you're desperate do get your hands on some solid sheets of your favourite condiment, unfortunately, you'll have to travel to Japan, where Bourbon are selling packs of four for $2.70 (AUD).
