I love mayonnaise. No, I mean I really LOVE it! Give me a BLT with Mayonnaise just SLATHERED on it and I would be in heaven! I remember seeing a Sandra Lee Semi Homemade segment. She was making some sandwich and she said be generous with the mayo... I thought "That is how much I put on when I am being LESS than generous! " lol. Mom made the BEST BLTs. I would love, as a kid, to come in from swimming or playing and see BLTs for us on the table! Oh, that first bite... always something to look forward to... UNLESS...... unless, she used Miracle Whip! I hated Miracle Whip! How can the two be interchangeable? Mayo is so good and tangy and Miracle Whip is sweet! Yuck! Give me tangy... but alas, we grow older and we try to become more health conscience. I have tried the light mayos and fat free and NO WAY... so Mayonnaise has still been plentiful in my diet. But the time has come. It is time to put the taste aside and move on to a healthier product. I don't like this like I like REAL mayonnaise. It lacks the tang. It lacks the flavor. But it is made with olive oil and is a healthier version. I am getting old anyway. Old enough where nothing tastes like it used to taste or should taste! So, I am resolved to accept this. Best Foods REAL Mayonnaise, I will miss you but it is time to grow up and put my tastes aside for a somewhat healthier product. Try hard not to jump in my basket when I pass you by in the grocery aisle!
