I've always thought mayo was mayo and I get the store brand, which this time around was Kroger's. It tasted okayish, but it didn't look right. a little translucent.
This time I went for a name brand claiming to be the best food. Much better.

I've lived a long time before realizing something as simple as mayo can be done wrong.

In many parts of the South, Duke's is the mayonnaise of choice.

I think it is the same as what you bought. The label is the same except for the name, along with the website.

Wars have been fought over less.

I will die on the Best Foods/Hellman's hill.

No joke, it makes a difference. It must be Best Foods/Hellmann’s. And it must be regular, not low-fat or whatever nonsense.

Miracle Whip Light for me. Mayo is beyond disgusting......
And I have French Canadian heritage and live 3 hours south of the border, so maybe that's why I think that. Lol!

My exact thought!

I grew up in NY on Hellmans and still eat it living in the South. Donít know that Iíve ever had Dukes, not knowingly anyway!

I grew up on Hellman's in Michigan. When we moved to Oregon (as an adult), I looked for it, and couldn't find it. I saw a label that looked the same, but it was "Best". Then a jingle ran through my head, "Bring out the Hellman's and bring out the Best". Ah ha! Same stuff, different name in different parts of the country.
Yes, brands made a difference. Also, Miracle Whip is icky.

Nothing but Dukes for us, here in NC. I use it in deviled eggs, potato salad and on sandwiches. Always delicious!

Suzyteach,

Same for me but backwards! I grew up in CA on Best Foods and moved to NY and switched to Hellmann's.

Kind of like Pepsi/Coke, it took me a long time to tell the difference between Miracle Whip and mayo. Either is fine with me if I need it, but MW is a little sweeter so it does better in things like deviled eggs, I think.

Yes to Best Foods (Hellmanís east of the Rockies.). Everything else is either too oily or bad tasting.

My mother once tried convincing me Miraclewhip was the same as mayo. I may have only been five but, hey lady, I call bs on that one.

Ok this is so weird. I usually get Hellmanís, but my DH just came home the other day with Dukeís brand and said ďthe sign said this was the best so I figured we could try itĒ.

Now Iíll need to report back if Iím in the Hellmanís or Dukeís camp.

My dh is a mayo man. I grew up on Miracle WHip. For the first 20 years of our marriage I bought both. After that point I decided I could go either way, so I only bought mayo. However, sometimes I do buy the light because I eat more of it than dh does! I just want to save a few calories and I am willing to do it with a lesser mayo.

I buy cheap, but I can taste a difference. I just don't care. Never saw or heard of Dukes. I bet I do if I ever get to go to a store.

It has to be Hellman's Mayo. I like the one made with olive oil. Miracle Whip is disgusting to me. I would rather do without that have Miracle Whip.

We buy Blue Plate here, but I like Hellman's as well. Miracle Whip has a tang that isn't appealing to me.

Duke's Mayo is super yummy! I thought it was too high in fat, but I just checked the label and it doesn't appear to be. I may be switching.

My dad, uncles, and an aunt all worked for the Best Foods company. It was always Hellmanís mayo. I have never had any other kind. Itís the same for Skippy peanut butter.

I prefer to make my own but if I have a name brand of mayo, it would be Hellman's. This Canadian would go without rather than have Miracle Whip.

I used to prefer Kraft, but I tried Smart Balance mayo a few years ago and now I won't buy anything else.
