What is your preferred brand of "prepared" Mayonnaise? - Page 2

post #31 of 57

Hellman's or Best in the west.  Dukes is a product of C.F. Sauer.  They have several different brands of mayo including Sauer.  Dukes is a trendy brand with young cooks.

Duke's.

 

No added sugar, fructose, etc.

I like Dukes and also when I can find it, Blue Plate.

Does that mean Hellman's is a stodgy brand for old people? :rolleyes:

 

Duke's is really good. Probably my favorite. I developed a taste for it when I lived in South Carolina for a while like 10 years ago. Something about the sourness really sets it apart, in my opinion. 

 

Dunno what makes it trendy.

Does that mean Hellman's is a stodgy brand for old people? No it means Hellman's is preferred by more mature and experienced cooks.:)

 

I think a lot of the trendy things are caused by the communication available today.  Regional brands are now available online.  Also sites like this one let cooks from different regions share ideas.  This is a good thing.

We ain't got no Dukes, or Blue Plate 'round heah.  But Hellman's is ubiquitous and so is Kraft so there Mr. fancy south of Mason Dixon.  :lol:  :lol:  :beer:

I don't know how you can call something that has been around for 100 years trendy but whatever. I've also been eating it (when I can get it) for over 10 years...so again, trendy? 

 

Have you guys actually ever tried it?

Here in the deep south I really lilke Duke's mayonnaise.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.

I have never had "Duke's" but Someday says it has a "sourness" to it.  So would you describe it more like traditional mayo or more a Miracle Whip or something else altogether different.

post #40 of 57

It a regular mayo. Someday it's trendy because you use it when you can get it.  Has anyone ever tried JFG mayo?

post #41 of 57

There's just something about Miracle Whip that tastes better to me than other brands.

Expensive European Mayonnaise that come in Tubes

 

I was used to Best Foods (aka Hellmann's West of the Rockies)) but when I moved to Italy, only names such as Thomy Delikatess, Calve, Triglia were available that are small tubes and quite expensive. Their flavors are excellent. Thomy is Swiss and very good. French (Benedicta) and German (Van Wijngaarden) versions also contain some mustard. Thomy is also available in larger jars but depending where you buy it, it can be 220%~300% more expensive than Best Foods.

That stuff looks like what you can get in outer space.

To be blunt Miracle whip is garbage with high sugar content. Hellmann's is a good standby for regular mayonnaise. Regular mayonnaise incorporates egg whites as well as egg yolks. Another type of mayonnaise made by either Kewpie or Blueplate incorporates only egg yolks is effective for certain applications. This type of mayonnaise is more creamy and in the case of Kewpie has a pronounced Asian impact.

That makes no sense.

 

And Duke's certainly has a different taste than Hellmans...not as thick, more tangy/vinegary. The difference isn't astronomical, but it is there. The only reason I don't use it as often now is because I can't find it where I live, has nothing to do with being trendy :rolleyes:

 

Like I said earlier, Kewpie is good too. It is basically mayo with MSG and rice vinegar. But it is delicious.

Hellmans an Best Brands are the same thing.

I like the Hellmans Olive Oil Mayo.

Anything that comes in a tube is amazing. I think the swiss even have fermented herring in a tube. Foie in a tube, chocolate in a tube. Need more space age tube food in my life.

If you ever, by any chance, happen do be in polish store try mayo called "Kielecki". It's brilliant.

post #55 of 57

Dukes or Blue Plate

post #56 of 57

Hellmans.
No contest for me.

post #57 of 57

Y'know, it depends upon where we are...

East Coast it's Hellmans

West Coast is Best Foods

Hawaii, always Kewpie

in the South it's Blue Plate

and in Europe (Mayo, mustard and hot mustard in a tube, so cool and tasty) is Thomy

But gotta say, Kraft (of any kind) or Miracle Whip - never!
