It's like saying a natural blonde and an "artificial" blonde are both blondes.
And I thought this couldn't get any sillier...

An expat friend who lives in Mexico ADORES MW. She can't buy it there, so folks have to bring it down when they visit.

MW was all my mom used, I thought it was mayo till I went to college and discovered Hellmans. I haven't had it in years. As I recall, it did make a good sammich.

My experimenting with garlic on eggs was that generally speaking it overpowered their subtler flavour, but it does work well if only a very small pinch of mild garlic is used and it is presoaked in a teaspoon of butter or olive oil then added to the raw eggs and they are cooked simultaneously.

All my ribbing in in jest, but it is the only store bought creamy white spread that I use. Call it what you like, it works exactly like mayo for me and I refer to it as mayo in my life.

Great stuff! As far as popularity goes, count the number of jars of it on any grocery store shelf and compare that number with the number of any other mayo and you'll find in most, it sells to more people.

To each thier own, as they say!

Around here you will always find more Miracle Whip sitting on the shelves than Hellmans...

Exactly! It's given more shelf space due to more sales!

So far, I've seen that in a half-dozen states. Stores NEVER allow more shelf space unless sales support it. It's pure numbers.

Thanks for your help in proving my point!

Bringing this back on topic, I think a quiche or fritatta with caramelized onions and garlic is very good.
