I envy all you who make your own mayo. I guess I'm so used to Best Foods that nothing I make quite lives up to the standard.

Best Food's is also what I use and grew up with. One of my other favorites is Kraft's Hot and Spicy. It is great on Polish sausages.

I prefer Miracle Whip (salad dressing) to mayo for most things. It has a tang that I like. But when I eat an artichoke I like mayo. Usually Hellmans** but I have tried Dukes since moving to SC. I think they use entirely too much here, and I usually have to ask them to go light on the mayo when I order a burger at a restaurant.

**I have never understood why it is called Hellmans in the east and Best Foods in the west. Same with spices. In California we used Schilling but in the east it is McCormick. I think they may have changed that though because I think I have seen some things labeled Schilling-McCormick (or is it McCormick-Schilling? I think that's it. lol).

Hellman's for me too... I think Hellman's & Best Foods are the same brand just on opposite coasts. But never never never Miracle Whip. I couldn't figure out until I was an adult why I didn't like sandwichs as Nana's house.... it was because she only used Miracle Whip!

I buy Trader Joe's exclusively, better tasting and less $$. I thought this would be regarding the flavored mayo, in which case I would say wasabi mayo, roasted red or yellow pepper mayo, Red Robbins BBQ sauce flavored mayo.

best foods is the western division (west of the rockies), cpc international, which makes hellman's, is the eastern division of the same company. an old friend used to work in their advertising/testing dept., and said that most of the best foods stuff was slightly spicier, while the cpc stuff is sweeter. this was supposedly derived from taste testing over the years.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"
