Hellmann's Maker Tweaks Site in 'Mayonnaise' Spat

Hellmann's Maker Tweaks Site in 'Mayonnaise' Spat - ABC News

After suing a small California company for calling its product "Just Mayo" because the product is made without eggs, it was discovered that Unilever had tweaked its website to make clear that some of its own products are "mayonnaise dressing," rather than mayonnaise.
That is interesting...

Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

Tried a sample of "just mayo" (deceptive) and I am not a fan
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Hellmann's should not be throwing rocks at anyone else. Years ago the Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise had a 100 calories per tablespoon and today it has 90 calories per tablespoon. If you look at the ingredients list,, below you will see that water is now second on the list of ingredients. I wish companies would not change recipes or use smaller packages, just raise the price and maintain the quality.

I still prefer Hellman's over the souths infamous "Dukes"

Dukes is very inexpensive and I guess its okay if you don't have any Hellman's.
But at Costco Hellman's is fairly inexpensive and IMO way better than Dukes.
Even the Kirkland brand mayo is very good. I think it could be Hellman's re-branded?

This may have something to do with having Dukes as one of my customers.
The odor at that plant was nauseating. Just as the packing houses i had for customers.
I cannot buy nor eat any of those products after seeing and smelling where they come from.

I didn't care for Just Mayo when I tried it. I think Hellman's is good but I prefer Sir Kensington's over everything else.

I do not like mayo. I don't want it on my sandwiches but I do cook with it and I have always bought Hellman's.
