    I ask fine wth either but usually use vegannaise made with grapeseed extract. It has the consistency of mayo and the taste but without the fat and dairy.

    It's the same thing. It's called best foods out here in the west. I was confused when I graduated from culinary school and moved out here. No one had ever heard of hellmans in my kitchen

    Edit:
    Just saw your link in the op

    I'm not a big fan of mayo, so neither. My mom used to make it at home, which was pretty good, but I never eat Best Foods or Hellmans if I can help it. For making egg or tuna salad, I use Lemonnaise.

    Don't like Mayo. Miracle Whip.

    And I knew they were the same. Now oddly, we've seen BOTH in the grocery store at once. An end display of Hellman's, and Best Foods in the normal mayo section.

    East of the Rockies is Hellmann's...West of the Rockies is Best Foods, so, you must be IN the Rockies to get both, I always wondered that. ;)

    Normally here it's Best Foods. But the label is so similar we weren't confused when we first moved. (My husband likes mayo.)

    My ex was a Miracle Whip guy. I never understood the "off" taste of it. I much prefer mayonnaise.

    I'm okay with Best Foods or Hellmans, depending on which side of the Rockies I'm in, but Phil....he's a Hellmans guy if he can help it.

    I think Miracle Whip has a zingier taste. Regular mayonnaise tastes eggy and bland to me. But, for many things I'd rather use Ranch dressing instead.

    Watch the movie "Undercover Brother"? Two words, " hot sauce"!

    I don't care which side of the Rockies you are on...

    Haha

    I tend to agree. I started using it for the SO who has high cholesterol and the grapeseed is the best for consistency and flavor. Then however, we started following a low carb diet where full fat foods are preferred so now we are back to using regular mayo.

    Not sure which we have in fridge, assuming it's hellmans since best foods is what hellmans is called west of the Rockies.

    Miracle whip here too! But then I've never seen Best Foods here.

    I prefer the light variety too!

    My homemade.

    This is interesting. I have wondered every since I moved to Montana why they don't have Hellman's in the grocery store. I see the BestFoods and just thought it was a cheap knockoff so I never bought it.

    Don't much care so long as it has horseradish, sriracha, tabasco, franks, or the like mixed in.

    Don't want to hijack but another product comes to mind. Fluff is on the east coast and 50% of the fine delicacy known as a fluffernutter. You can buy Fluff in California but it's called something else, can't recall at the moment. I think something like Marshmallow spread or something like that. I'm sure there are other products that are the same but go by different names depending on where they are located. This even extends to grocery stores. Kroger out here but out west it's Ralph, Food 4 less and many others. Northern California Safeway, southern California Vons.

    I'm bored at work today. Sorry for the derail.
