It follows last year’s ‘Barbiecore’ craze around the blockbuster movie, and arrives in time to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the Barbie brand.

The studio behind the box office hit film Barbie previously announced it had contributed more than £80 million to the UK economy and created 685 jobs.

The film was largely shot at Leavesden studios in Hertfordshire, where Gerwig created the detailed and vivid Barbieland sets.

It generated more than £95 million at the UK box office, the evidence says.

An initial limited run of just 5,000 ‘Barbiecue’ bottles will be available from Monday solely online, followed by another limited run at retailers shortly afterwards.

Heinz said the smoky sauce included beetroot extract to achieve the pink colour.

Thiago Rapp from Heinz, said: “Barbie well and truly won the hearts of Brits all over again last year, and after seeing the reaction this sauce brought to our fans on social media, we knew we had to make it a reality.

“We’re always looking for ways to innovate and give our fans what they want, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring this iconic partnership with Mattel to life.”
