      thats can get in on the discussion
      May i ask why you enjoy it?

          1. re: mizzdee

            Wonderful, richly unctuous accompaniment, full of fruity complexity and that slightly tangy, soothing mouthfeel.

            Also nothing makes a sandwich like it

              1. re: Jimmy_Ike

                I like least his reasoning. I also LOVE Duke's mayonaise

      1. When I was in Canada I hated all mayo. Whether it was store bought or my own concoction, it didn't matter. Now that I am living in Japan I have grown to enjoy Japanese mayo. It's quite different in taste and actually works for me. Never thought I'd see the day where I enjoyed mayo.

        1. re: TeRReT

          So what makes Japanese mayo different from the stuff sold in the USA?

            1. re: kurtt

              while its true it does have a small amount of msg, Kewpie, the major brand, is also made of yolks instead of whole eggs, and rice wine vinegar instead of distilled vinegar.

              1. re: TeRReT

                And dang, it is so mellow and so good and amazing on a fried green tomato and bacon sandwich......

                1. re: mamachef

                  I went out of my way to check this stuff out and will not be trying it any time soon. Cheapest place I found it was 7.99. No no. That's to much for something I may hate.

                  1. re: suzigirl

                    Yeah, it does come sorta dear. But I don't use much mayo, so it's my "private" stash sandwich spread; everyone else (and I like it too) uses Best Foods. And it's a high price for something that, as you said, you may hate.

                    1. re: mamachef

                      Don't turn me in to the chow police, BUT I am a MW girl. Lol( sheepish grin)

                      1. re: suzigirl

                        So's my grandma, who is a cook and chowhound extrordinaire!! And that being the case, you might enjoy the Kewpie. It has a sweet, mellow rich tang unlike regular American mayo, and it might just work for you.

                        1. re: mamachef

                          Okay, now you have me wanting to try this again. I am going across town to the other Asian markets and see if its cheaper.

                          1. re: suzigirl

                            Let me know what you think of it. :)

                    2. re: suzigirl

                      Kewpie should be in a different category that mayo . . . it reigns supreme in my house. Even at $5.99/bottle around here, it is worth the price. . . it just makes us cherish it more and use it more sparingly. In my opinion, it has a different texture (probably due to the yolks) but also a more lemon-y flavor. The best application is spread on a sandwich or drizzled over top of something. And the way it squeezes out of the bottle with a choice of two different designs! That is an added bonus.

              2. re: ChiliDude

                I am curious about the history of mayonnaise in Japan. It seems so un-Japanese to me. It also seems un-Asian, and yet, it seems part of that fried shrimp Thai recipe, and some fried Chinese recipe. ...

              3. re: TeRReT

                Also, I still don't use this mayo like a traditional mayo. It doesn't go on my sandwiches. It gets eaten with lightly steamed/boiled broccoli, on okonomiyaki, in pasta/potato salad and maybe with karaage if you're really crazy.

              4. Blech, blech, and triple blech! Congealed oil. Ugh, no thanks. I do like MW though.

                1. re: suzigirl

                  anfd what do you think MW is made of

                  1. re: coastie

                    I am aware what it is made of but it has more flavor and it is what I grew up on. Its all about what you are familiar with.

                    1. re: suzigirl

                      I grew up subjected to MW only, and I probably used to like it. The thought of it makes me gag now. Sugary glop. I will never understand it. Especially when it's added to something like tuna salad. I don't get the love of fish slathered with sugar.

                      I LOVE mayo. And I despise any place that calls that sugary glop that some people refer to salad dressing as mayo when I order a sandwich. Calling sugary glop mayo on a menu should be punishable by law.

                      1. re: gordeaux

                        Oh, such controversy. I agree no one should try and pass off MW as mayo. That's just wrong on so many levels.
                        I was told for years by my mom that MW was mayo, so imagine my horror when i had a sleep over and was fed a bologna Sammie w/ real mayo. I was horrified. Actually argued w/ the friends mom that something had gone very wrong w/ her mayo. That's not what "mayo" tastes like. To add inselt to little fragile kid brain injury, I went to a picnic and saw the mayo that was sitting out at the beginning turn into an oily off colored mess by the end. That's it.... I'm out!

                2. I like mayo except in one case. When I order an Italian hoagie at a sandwich shop, I am asked if I want 'oil or mayo?' Oil is Italian, mayo is French. I want oil and I think it is heresy to put mayo on a hoagie. I recently learned how to avoid the stupid question when I order a hoagie I say 'I want oil on my Italian hoagie.' Giving the oil clue before the sandwich order works well

                  For those of you who do not live in the Delaware Valley area and are not familiar with the 'hoagie', a hoagie is the Italian version of a sub, hero, etc.

                  1. Goodness gracious alive...How does one make a decent 'mater sammich' with no (Dukes) mayonnaise? A little mater juice and mayo combining to run down to your elbows....Absolutely delicious!

                    Miracle Whip works well as 'grease' for bicycle chains, squeaky doors, rusty hinges, etc....In a pinch to grease the axle on the Chuck Wagon!

                      Pretty soon, Uncle Bob... the tomatoes will be ripe and it will be time for our 'sink sandwiches'.

                      Ditto on the Dukes.

                      1. re: jmcarthur8

                        I have warm sunkissed straight from the backyard maters and I will have them smothered in MW, salt and pepper. Its blasphomy and I'm okay w/ that

                          1. re: Uncle Bob

                            Want some maters? I'll even look the other way when ya break out the Duke's.

                          2. re: suzigirl

                            Smothered in MW? That's legal?!?! :)

                            Oh goodness, duke-mater sandwich. Only a couple months away. Heaven.

                              We have to get them in early in Fla. Otherwise they burn. I already have better boys, heirlooms, earlys and camparis. Hope you can keep yourself from drooling. When you are getting fresh I'll be planting my winter garden and won't have any little lovely and will be coveting yours. I just hope you won't mind when I invision them slathered in MW. :-)

                                    Okay.... I'm gonna embarass myself and say the first few seconds I was scratching my head. And then the lightbulb went off and I erupted in huge belly laughter.

                                        There may be an intervention. We should check.. if it's like smokers chantix, I can do this
