Forget Ketchup vs. Salsa: Mayo’s Where It’s At

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- It can be argued that nothing goes better with a burger and fries than ketchup, but a new study finds it's not your favorite food topping.

Mayonnaise is number one by a more than two-to-one margin, the data firm Euromonitor found, according to Quartz.

Americans spend over $2 billion on it each year, and less than half of that -- $800 million -- on ketchup, the research found. Coming in a close third is soy sauce. Barbecue sauce was fourth, followed by hot sauce, and mustard at number six.

What about salsa? Researchers say it's not a condiment, but a dip.  If salsa was factored in, it would surpass ketchup at number two but still be topped by mayo.
