Hellman's here.

That is very interesting - I always thought Hellman's & Best Foods were exactly the same.

Ya learn something new every day...

You Miracle Whip sandwich lovers: try it on bread with chips - that's all. Just smoosh the 2 pieces of bread together to crush the chips a little & enjoy! Doesn't get much better than that, does it?

I'm all about the food!

Same with Heinz ketchup. If not that, then I go without.

MOST of the time I use Miracle Whip. It's the only jarred "mayo" I can stomach.

In those rare instances where I just *have* to have actual mayonnaise for a certain recipe in which MW won't work...I make my own mayo.

Ick... I really cannot stand Miracle Whip and have never understood how anyone could stomach that.

As for what mayonnaise I like best, I really like japanese mayonnaise, like Kewpie. It tastes slightly different from "Western" mayo and is made with rice vinegar instead of distilled. Second to that though, I'd have to agree with those who said Hellman's.

All I have ever known is BestFoods. Don't really care for Miracle Whip or Kraft mayonnaise, too sweet. When I want a spread that is spicy I use Woeber's Horseradish Sauce.

My kids loved a Miracle Whip sandwich when they were little. Sometimes they wanted a slice of American cheese on it.
I like the tangy taste of Miracle Whip. I actually buy the lite version, not only because it has fewer calories, but it doesn't give us heartburn.

Anyone ever try Vegenaise (sp.?)? It's a mayo-type spread made with grapeseed oil. A vegan friend gave me a jar, and I avoided trying it for quite a while. I generally don't like foods masquerading as other foods. To my surprise, I liked it better than Hellman's. Go figure.

Miracle Whip *shudder*

Mr HB loves it and hates mayo. I'm just the opposite. I can't eat anything with MW in it...

I make separate potatos salads etc because I don't want either one of us to be unhappy. It just takes a second longer.

Dukes is the best mayo but I do believe you can only buy it in the south.
