Hellmann's / Best Food canola mayonnaise and Mayonesa con jugo de limon

If anyone has been curious about these they all taste exactly like regular Hellmann's.
My Best Foods loving SO always keeps a small jar in the fridge, so I was able to do side by side comparisons. No difference. Nada.
Roberto, who you might guess from the name is Latino, gave the Best Foods mayo with the lime a taste and said ... "Limon? ... Noooooo". Didn't taste any different to him.
The thing is that regular Hellmann's has lemon juice in it, so substituting lime for lemon isn't going to make a great deal of difference.
Never realized before how salty Best Foods mayo is ... that was the flavor that dominated ... salt.

I disagree. The Hellman's mayonesa con limon, tastes very diffent from the regular. We always bought some when visiting mexico, because I could not find it here in Chicago. It is now available in most local grocers here. I think it's wonderful in tuna salad, or with any type of fish. It's also good with chicken breasts. The texture to me seems slightly thinner than the plain regular Hellman's.
I haven't tasted the version with lime juice, but the one with canola oil tastes exactly the same.
Hellmann's Mayonesa con Juego de Limon is my absolute favorite commercial mayo.
I get it when I visit Texas or Mexico & bring it back home to New Orleans. I have run out many times and rely on regular Hellmanns or Blue Plate.
In my book, there is a big difference between the two. Melanie Wong nailed it.
I wish I had some now, but have been out for months.
Years ago, I tried to get Hellmann's to bring the con limon to N.O., but to no avail.
They just might do it now.
I found the Hellman's mayonesa discounted at Grocery Outlet or I probably wouldn't have tried it. A quart of mayo last me for 5 years or so . . . a testament to the good-past-expiry keeping power of the stuff. But I'm glad I did as it's a very good product.
I believe that McCormick's mayonesa is the top brand in Mexico. I haven't tried it, but wonder how the taste compares.
