Kewpie Mayonnaise

Does anyone know why Kewpie Mayonnaise is not readily available in supermarkets? I know you can get it online, and there are some Asian markets not far away. Iím just curious. Is it just because not enough people know about it, so it doesnít sell? Is there any brand of mayo thatís commonly available that replicates the unique taste and texture of Kewpie?

JJ, folks here on the "mainland" don't know about/use/buy
Kewpie Mayonnaise (unless they've been to or are familiar with Japanese cuisine).
Now, in the 50th State, we have it readily available everywhere, inexpensive,
used all the time (well, along with Best Foods for everyday stuff) !!!
I just picked up 2 containers here in the middle of the desert, through Walmart.com...
in store pick up for free, but they don't carry it in the store.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!!
To me anyways, there is no equal to Kewpie Mayo!
Today, I made Tuna Sandwiches for me and Mom using my
hoarded Coral Brand Tuna ... YUM!!!
We were both in heaven and DH was like, "Meh".

I have come to use Walmart's free pickup for a lot of things which are not 'in store'.. A pretty good service..

Kewpie is readily available here AND there is a very, very good Asian market in the Missouri town I'm moving to...

My husband wants to move. Where, I don’t know, but wherever it is, I MUST have access to Asian and other markets! And our house has to have a decent sized, well-planned kitchen with a pantry. Other than that I’m good with wherever. Oh, and no hurricanes or tornadoes. The Asian markets are the deal breaker though!

Here's a suggestion:

AsiaTown Cleveland photo tour We went to Night Market this past summer and had a great time!

If you tire of that, head about five miles west to West Side Market. Ten minute drive or half an hour by public transit, you could buy most of your groceries for a week. This used to be on my regular shopping rotation when we lived back home. Now I get to make a pilgrimage only twice a year.

Our Wally World carries it. I don't really like mayo though.

If I was closer to Denver, I'd use the Asian market.

To bad Cleveland is so far from where I am currently at (Middletown).

I started making my own mayonnaise a good number of years ago now. It's so easy! It's Auguste Escoffier's recipe, and it' delicious!

4-5 hard boiled eggs,
salt
freshly ground pepper
1 1/4 cups sunflower oil
1 tsp white vinegar
2 tbsp mayonaiise
1 tbsp chopped chives.

Sieve the egg yolks and pound a paste with the salt and pepper. Gradually work in the oil, add the vinegar and lastly the mayo and chives. Chop the whites and scatter over the salad. Talk about good value!
