Has anyone tried Kirkland (Costco) Mayo?

I saw it the other day for the first time . Wonder how it compares to Best Foods.

      I feel the same way you do, that's why I'd like a review. I tried Dukes once and that was the only time. It's hard to believe some people can't stand mayo at all.

    2. Thinner and less-rich and tangy, but ok if you doctor it up with some lemon and pepper. I'm a make-it-yourself girl first, Duke second, and Best Foods (Hellman's) third.

        Very helpful, thank you. I'll stick with my Best Foods/Hellmans.

          I didn't think it was thinner. If anything, I thought it was a little thicker and heavier, with less tang. It's serviceable in flavored sauces, but not so great on its own. I wish I had known that I could take back that tub! It took months for me to work through it.

        2. Try don't like it Costco will return your money. No risk.

            Yes, I have tried the Kirkland Mayo, and I like it as much as Best Foods/ Hellmans.
            I also buy their Albacore tuna, Canned Chicken breast and Roast beef. I happy with all Kirkland products I have bought.

          2. I tried Kirkland Mayonnaise once. Then when immediately back to Best Foods. no comparison.

            I do use Kirkland products, but not mayo, must be Best Foods.

            1. I'm open to trying anything once, but I'm afraid of the size of the jar. How big is it?

                The jar is HUGE, but I break it down into pint and pint & half canning jars using those wonderful screw on lids. These lids are sometimes hard to find. Fred Meyers carries them but run out quite often. (I don't like leaving items with metal screw bands in the refer because they will start to rust and can't be used in canning once this happens.) Anyway, you can then place the jars in the back of the refer while keeping one up front.

                  But the jar is probably an awesome jar...
