Heinz Ketchup, French's mustard, Miracle Whip instead of mayo (for SLoB's reasons) - those are my preferences. I use a lot of ketchup making my own BBQ sauces - it gives a bit of a flavor jump start over tomato sauce.

I will use regular mayo and other types of mustard when called for in some recipes.

I end up buying ketchup, mustard, and mayo from Winco and they rarely have any variety in what they offer. Just for the heck of it though, I'll check Trader Joe's when I go there this month and see what they have.

Straight talk about high-fructose corn syrup: what it is and what it ain't
I've found that there are die hard fans of Heinz, nothing else will do.

Like you I buy whatever is on sale. Right now I have store brand version of "Simply Heinz", I'm fine with that. We don't use a ton of ketchup, maybe 2 bottles a year, although it could be more if we babysit a friend's kid more. The last time he (2 years old) and Rob were making farting noises with the bottle and laughing hysterically, then Rob was feeding him the ketchup so as not to waste it. I don't think that we're equipped to be parents...

Mayonnaise, on the other hand, is very important! Hellmann's - nothing else will do.
Hellmann's hands down is my favorite, no other commercial mayo comes close. There are very few things that I'm brand loyal to.

I use Heinz to make my own barbecue sauce and some dressings, but beyond that, I don't use it much just plain. I can't stand yellow mustard, but cook a lot with Dijon. Only Best Foods mayo will do for us..Helman's east of the Rockies. That nasty sweet Miracle Whip is a mayo mutant and actually a dressing.

I agree with you 100% about Miracle Whip. I can't abide the stuff. It's overly sweet and overly processed looking and tasting. I know folks for whom nothing but Miracle Whip is acceptable. They say that Hellman's looks gross and curdled to them. It's funny that people have such strong feelings about mayo but it's so.

Yellow is the only kind of mustard that belongs on a hot dog.

Only ketchup belongs on a hot dog, never mustard.

Even the ball park gives you a choice. They recognize that not everyone has the same preference.
