I called Hellmans or Best Foods about their recipe a few years ago. I was convinced that they were different. One rep told me "no, exactly the same just a different name west or east of the rookies. another one told me, "yep, they're different, Hellmans is whipped." duh I thought, that's what I thought was different.

Just off the phone with Belinda at Kraft. MW was changed in 2005 and possibly before that date too, she only had the most recent change. Oil and egg yolks was what changed. Probably, she thought, due to customer comments about wanting it to be more health friendly.

I saw [but didn't buy] the olive oil Kraft mayo last week in WM. It was about $4 and I thought better of buying it. I can always make my own, and will. {KatieE, guess what I bought lots of? that and parm cheese}

Nice to know I'm not crazy and that it did change. I thought it was an east coast west coast thing, like the names on products. I do like Hellmans better than I ever liked Best Foods. I guess it's the production.

I do too. To me, it does seem whipped.

Okay - I cracked open the jar of Hellmann's Olive Oil mayo & I did not like it. Won't be buying it again. Not only did it not have either the scent or taste of olive oil, but the taste it did have was the decidedly funny taste that low-fat & no-fat mayos have, which is why I never buy them.

I'll be sticking to my regular Hellmann's from now on.

No, I wouldn't return it. It's not the store's fault that I just don't like it.

I'll just use it in things where stronger flavors prevail - like tartar sauce, garlicy broiled fish topping, etc. I still have a jar of good old regular Hellmann's on hand for other stuff where the mayo taste would stand out more (salads, sandwiches).
