"I had the idea because I smell the cannabis coming from the coffee shop opposite my chip shop in Amsterdam every day," Manneken Pis chip shop chain owner Albert van Beek told AFP on Tuesday.

Unlike the cannabis sold in Dutch coffee shops, the mayonnaise will contain none of the active ingredient THC.

"It's just about the taste, we specialise in sauces and we constantly want to diversify," Van Beek said.

Menus will clearly state that the mayonnaise, vastly more popular with chips in the Netherlands and Belgium than ketchup or vinegar, contains no euphoric THC.
