    You can love mayo, you can hate Mayo. Both are totally acceptable.

    If you consider miracle whip to be good however…that is a crime that must be punished.

        *Mayonnaise is made of oil, eggs, and vinegar (or lemon juice).

        *Miracle Whip is made from water, soybean oil, high-fructose corn syrup, vinegar, modified corn starch, eggs, salt, natural flavor, mustard flour, potassium sorbate, spice, and dried garlic.

        Changed the ingredients because the source said sugar and not corn syrup. Miracle whip is basically a science experiment to make super cheap mayo. It’s like comparing cheddar cheese to American cheeze. One just isnt right.

            Miracle Whip is like a sweeter mayo. Unless you were born and raised with it, then you’ll likely hate it.

            Mayonnaise can be made simply by emulsifying oil into egg yolks. It’s super easy to make if you want, and it’s easy to modify by adding spices or seasonings. You don’t eat it by itself, but it’s fantastic for use in baking, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, sauces, and dips.

            Mayo is primarily an ingredient for use on something else. You would never eat flour by itself, just like you’d never eat straight mayo by itself.

    Normal mayo (like Hellmann’s or Heinz) is fine and all, but goddamn Kewpie mayo is the shit. It’s easily top 3 readymade condiments in our fridge; we’ve always got a bottle on the go!

        Kewpie is the reason I’m the mayo monster. I love it in my sandwiches, salads, sushi and ramen. It has an incredibly rich, savory, nutty flavour.

        You’re making a great decision! It’s more expensive than regular mayo but jeez is it worth every penny. We have a Korean shop near us which stocks it at lower prices than regular supermarkets, so we go and stock up occasionally

        It’s absolutely different, a much deeper and more umami flavour! We used to just use it for Asian type dishes that called for it but it’s so good that we’ve essentially replaced normal mayo with it at this point

      Wait so you don’t like any condiment on your sandwich? They’re all slime.

      Mayo just adds a particular texture. High protein and a little bit greasy which is great for certain foods.

        Incorrect. The ones that are paste, I like fine. Jam or mustard or hot sauce, fine. Those are all human consumable texture and flavor combinations. The “let’s put on this food some egg+vaseline mixture that someone left in the sun” experience of mayonnaise is one I can skip though.

        I also strongly dislike the texture of bananas going all mushy while I’m “chewing” them, to the point that I don’t eat them, so maybe it’s just a me issue. That is my feeling though.

    Not only does Mayo make things like sandwiches better but you can combine it with various other flavors for deliciousness. E.g. garlic or spicy aioli.

      It’s a brand name for a “whipped dressing” product. It’s similar in color and texture to mayonnaise, but it has a different flavor. It’s usually vegetarian ingredients, as opposed to mayo which uses egg

      When I was growing up, my mother thought it was healthier, so we never had mayo. So I was used to the flavor of Miracle Whip and generally prefer it.

      It’s so much better than mayo, because a little hit of lemon juice giving it some flavor, some tartness, instead of the congealed snot of mayonnaise

      Essentially Americanized mayo. Cheaply produced and processed in massive quantities with lots of added sugar. Personally I find it disgusting (why would you want something savory so sweet?!) But my American grandfather loves it. If you would like to imagine it’s flavor, imagine mixing vanilla ice cream with normal mayo.

      It’s one of those American staples that is a cheaper, more readily available, version of European staples that the American public continues to love and eat out of familiarity. American chocolate is similar, though more popular amongst younger Americans. I’d say miracle whip is less popular because quality mayo is now also readily available and very few prefer the cheap imitation. Quality chocolate is still much harder to find thus American chocolate remains popular.

    You take nasty ass uncooked eggs, Mix them up with some oil and a splash of vinegar, lemon juice and mustard. How does that not sound appetizing?

    I think mayonnaise is so easy and cheap to make at home I don’t know why people buy it in a store. Here’s my recipe:

    • 1.5 tsp (7.5 ml) paprika
    • 0.5 tsp (2.5 ml) powdered chile
    • 1 tsp (5 ml) lime juice
    • 4 tsp (20 ml) water
    • 4 tsp (20 ml) malt vinegar
    • 1.5 tsp (7.5 ml) dry mustard
    • 2 egg yolks

    Mix this all together to combine, then drizzle in a little less than 2 cups of vegetable oil (480 ml) while mixing vigorously. It will take some practice to get the timing right, but once it starts sounding like you’re mixing mac and cheese you can add the oil more quickly. If it doesn’t break it should start thickening and getting creamy.

    I usually make mine in the food processor.

      I don’t understand this. Is there some sort of trick or do I just prefer buttery flavor? I’ve tried mayo on grilled cheese twice so far: while I suppose it toasts nicely, it’s just nowhere near as good as butter. It’s just toast with cheese

    My favourite use for mayo is as a butter substitute specifically for making grilled cheese sandwiches. It fries up really nice on the bread because it’s eggy
