Miracle Whip Versus Mayonnaise

Posted on 06/09/2012 9:04:20 PM PDT by FoxPro

I am torn over this.

Freerepublic.com has the smartest people in the world.

If you were to make the best BLT in the world tonight, what would you use?

I am quite serious about this.

I dislike mayonnaise, but I serously have a burning hatred for Miracle Whip. My mom LOVES the stuff and put it on every sandwich while I was growing up. In fact she used to make Miracle Whip (only) sandwiches. I’m throwing up a bit just thinking about it.

Ginger, or Mary Anne.

I still can't get Mary Anne out of my head. I used to have to run to the bathroom...

One time I was making tuna salad sandwiches and found I had no mayo (Hellman’s, btw), but only had Miracle Whip, I just gave the tuna to the cat.

Lived in Cal while in the navy in 71-73. In NH now. Miracle whip has its uses. It is basically mayo with vinegar and sugar, which is the basis for deviled eggs (plus mustard and paprika).

Tuna goes well with a little sweet and sour. BLT does not.

A BLT simply isn't a BLT without Miracle Whip. For years, I never could understand why my bacon and tomato sandwiches did not taste as good as Mom's. And I finally discovered the reason was because she used Miracle Whip.

(btw, ditch the lettuce)

Miracle Whip is from space. Nasty concoction from an alien race.

Hellman's rocks.

It is real mayonnaise or I wont eat it. Same is true for real butter and sugared soft drinks.

I think we were separated at birth.

You know, I got so tired of fighting with my family over Miracle Whip or Mayo while making macaroni salad so I used both in the recipe...it’s not bad, really!

I was raised on Miracle Whip. When I was eighteen I tasted Hellmann’s for the first time. Taste Nirvana.

I still can’t believe my parents deprived me of real taste all those years, and fed us kids that crappy tasting Miracle Whip.
________________________
We were all raised on Miracle Whip and once I tasted mayo I thought OMG Mom what is wrong with you??? But of course she also used that “sandwich spread” stuff that looked like 1000 Island dressing but thicker *gag*

Not sure why, but we’ve gotten Hellman’s lately in NM at the commissary, not Best Foods which is what we always got.

Agreed, but followed by Kraft Mayo light, which is BY FAR the best tasting light ‘mayonnaise’.

It has to be mayo. And when it comes to mustard, it has to be Grey Poupon.

Ginger is attractive, no question, but there’s just something about Mary Anne, that if I had to pick one, it would be her!

Ugh, not sure where the Duke's I bought in Texas was made, but I tossed the potato salad I made with it, plus what was left in the jar into the garbage.

“This is one of those questions without resolution.

This is along the lines of asking -— Ginger, or Mary Anne.

Some will say they always wanted Ginger, and others will reject Ginger, in spite of her alluring nature, and go right for Mary Anne.”

He was, after all, asking for opinions. :-)

Naw, that’s not it - I think Miracle Whip is for kids because it’s tastes sweet (as I recall from my youth) - Mom put it in tuna salad and egg salad for school lunches. When I was an adult, grownups unrelated to me introduced me to Hellman’s and the rest is history!

I am not a snooty gourmet, but some on here that will claim it has to be real mayo, or nothing.
When I have a choice, I always buy faux mayo, as the real thing is always MUCH higher in cost...maybe double.

I just looked in my kitchen and I see real mayo, and faux mayo called Mayo Magic. I also see it as “salad dressing” but looks just like real mayo.
The real Mayo is empty so I can not do a taste test, but I rarely had a problem with most any mayo substitute.

Obviously our Moms hated us. Mine bought that stuff, too. My Gunsmith likes Thousand Island Dressing on his salads. I can't even stand to look at it on a Salad as it reminds me of that horrible orange Sandwich Spread.

I left as you were arriving, maybe little before. A little relish in with the Tuna/MW and it brings back so many memories. Back east, people would rather take out the trash than sit and enjoy! It's a great sandwich that I always associate to CA and my friend's families back then. I was kidding when I asked if you grew up there... maybe we were introduced at the same time? Tuna/MW/relisd... Be well, and enjoy your Tuna Fish sandwiches, I know I do!!!

Ditto all the way.

Mayo doesn't have as much taste, IMO. I prefer Miracle Whip on sandwiches.
