Hellmann's Mayonnaise substitute in the New York area?
Now that Unilever has wrecked Hellmann's Mayonnaise by changing the formula, what are former Hellmann's lovers using instead?
In another post, several people recommended "Duke's" and said that it's not at all sweet, which is what I remember about the earlier, good version of Hellmann's. Unfortunately, I'm in New York and Duke's does not appear to be available up here.
(By the way, the present incarnation of Hellmann's tastes WEIRD - why on earth did Unilever screw around with something that everybody who eats mayonnaise seemed to love?)
Glendale is hungry...
TJ defintely good. No sugar - Hellman's does add sugar - doubt if the Unilever change has removed it. Duke's also has no sugar but have never tasted - supposedly very good.
It's pretty easy to make your own - just don't use Olive Oil - OO has peculiar property of becoming bitter when 'whipped.'
Pity if Unilver has messed with H. My dad was a Hellman's salesman in NY in 40's - so grew up on it.
I always buy Hellmann's but not very often because I don't use it very much. When did it change? I buy the reduced fat version if it matters...
Grew up in Jersey eating Hellman's but when I moved south
of the MD line I became a Duke's convert. It can be ordered
from their website if you'd like to give it a try.
