Yay, Raine! I used to use Hellman's (I 'fess I did grow up in Yankeeville), but switched to Duke's at first because of the price difference when we moved here; now I won't buy anything else!

Miracle Whip, I like the tangy/sweet flavor.

The only time I use mayo is when I have a recipe that is to be cooked, like my chicken casserole...or when our grown son comes to visit. He's a Mayo man!
I much prefer the flavor of Miracle Whip Lite, as do my husband and grandson. I love the tangy taste.

I grew up eating Miracle Whip and white bread at home ... and Mom even bought that disgusting stuff with added Lemon juice. I only got real mayo and wheat bread when I went to grandma's house.

When I went off to college and bought my first jar of Hellmans Mayo - I never went back (and I started buying wheat bread, too!) I must confess that a few months ago I did buy a small jar of Miracle Whip and a loaf of white bread ... looking to recapture a childhood comfort food moment (a Miracle Whip wish sandwich .... lots of Miracle Whip between 2 slices of white bread - and wishing we had a slice of bologna). It just wasn't the same.

Yes, there IS a difference in the flavors - look at the ingredients for both (and their order):

Miracle Whip Ingredients: WATER, SOYBEAN OIL, VINEGAR, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, SUGAR, MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, EGGS YOLKS, SALT, MUSTARD FLOUR, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, POTASSIUM SORBATE AS A PRESERVATIVE, SPICE, PAPRIKA, NATURAL FLAVOR, DRIED GARLIC.

Hellmans Mayo Ingredients: SOYBEAN OIL, WATER, WHOLE EGGS AND EGG YOLKS, VINEGAR, SALT, SUGAR, LEMON JUICE, NATURAL FLAVORS, CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA (USED TO PROTECT QUALITY).

Obviously - Hellmans Mayo is more eggy, less sweet and less acetic than Miracle Whip. Guess that's why I like it better. But, then, I also don't go squeezing lemon all over my fish as soon as it hits the table like some people do ... I want to taste the fish!

I use light mayo. DH prefers the taste on sandwiches and I never put it on a sandwich. The onl;y way I eat it is as an ingredient in tuna salad etc.
