Spicy/Flavored Mayo advice

I don't like plain mayo at all, but I do enjoy the flavored mayos that are becoming more and more common at restaurants and sandwhich shops. Are there any from the store that are very good? I like spicy but non-spicy recommendations are welcomed also.

P.S. Please don't tell me to make my own. That's not what I'm looking for here.

    I thought helmans sold flavored ones like wasabi mayo

    1. Practically every spread you see in the condiment aisle that looks creamy is actually flavored mayo. Horseradish sauce, Dijonaise, creamy cajun, etc. Personally, I like to take Paul Prudhomme's and mix it with regular mayo.

      1. Mayonnaise with harissa - better if you make it with a French or Belgian mayo with no sugar, to get the authentic Maghrebian/European flavour.

        A real classic is mayonnaise with dry mustard - or dijon mustard.

          Has anyone trie Hellman's citrus mayo?. It is the jar with the orange cap. I am really interested in this one but I don't want to commit to a quart. It seems to be popular with the Latino market.

            Tried it, wasn't impressed. Add a little lime juice to real mayo and you get a better flavor.

          1. I've purchased, used, and been pleased with wasabi mayo, chipotle mayo, and several different garlic mayos.

            Also, at a small winery in California's gold rush area, I once picked-up a couple of mayos that'd been made using wines (I recall a cabernet mayo that was incredible) - haven't seen those again, though.
