Olive oil mayo - tried it?

I just saw a commercial for Kraft olive oil mayo. Supposed to be lower fat than regular. Anybody try it yet? How does it taste?

I really liked it! It's been a couple months so the exact taste isn't coming to me. It was smooth. BUT, when I use mayo it's for a recipe that I've made for years and years and years and nothing really works but the brand I've always used flavor-wise. I'm not sure why I haven't bought more - it is now on my list!

It is fine in tuna salad and deviled eggs and even on a

sandwich make with deli meat. It is a little thinner and smoother than the regular. But when it comes to tomato sandwiches, nothing but the original Hellmann's will do.
Just realized that you were asking about Kraft not Hellmann's. Not sure about the Kraft brand, I'm a Hellmann's gal.

Products that are lower in fat often have sugar added to get a richer mouthfeel, so check the label carefully.

I'm not a big fan of Kraft mayo. I do like MWhip though.

Does it taste better than regular reduced fat mayo tho? I can't stand that stuff.... thought I'd give the olive oil a shot.

I read a recipe for fake mayonaise. It is made from silken tofu instead of eggs. I havent tried it. Making mayonaise from tofu rather than eggs just feels a bit weird to me. I cant remember if oil goes in it or not.

But I think that even low fat mayonaises are generally not low in fat. Just lower than the regular ones.

Suzi - I really liked the Olive Oil mayo but I don't mind the lite mayo so...I may not be a good judge...

Maybe after the son#2 goes to college next week and son#1 has moved out (started 2 weeks ago and still moving a carload a week!), I'll get a jar to try. They would be insulted with anything but the usual Kraft Real Mayo. I tried Dukes once since I had a coupon and boy did I hear about the "nasty" mayo! I myself liked Dukes and really didn't taste much difference. They don't care for Miracle Whip either.
