Flavor Counts!!!

I have been really trying to eat a more healthy diet lately. I switched to Hellman's with olive oil and.........well let me just say it tastes like a white creamy substance and that is it!!!!




I was raised on good ole Miracle Whip. The flavor is so wonderful on a turkey sandwich or BLT. My mother use to make me a mayonnaise sandwich for a snack. Did you ever have a mayo sandwich???? That brings back some memories. Well today I bought groceries and I now have a Big jar of Miracle Whip, and had a turkey sandwich for lunch.....flavor counts!





Have a good day all!

I have not used either of these in years. I did lose 21 pounds in a bit over two weeks by cutting out snacks, carbs and eating a lot less. It seems to have worked. I don't eat much at all which is totally different from how I was eating.

My mother used Miracle Whip as well. Maybe it's an Arkansas thing. Anyway, she always just called it "salad dressing." I switched to Mayonnaise after I married and recently bought some of the Hellmann's Olive Oil mayo. I didn't think it was too bad but not as flavorful as the real stuff. Interestingly, I now prefer mayo to Miracle Whip.

I didn't learn that Miracle Whip wasn't Mayonase until I was about 20 years old.

Miracle Whip is not the same as mayo. Kraft does make a mayo, but to me neither Hellman or Kraft taste that good. I'm like you, good old Miracle Whip. It's tart and hits the spot. We use to eat a lot of just plain ole Miracle Whip sandwiches. At one time, this has been years ago, don't know if they still make it or not, Kraft use to have something called Sandwich Spread, and it tasted like Miracle whip with pickle relish in it and it was delicious on plain bread. The only time I use Mayo is when I'm making this casserole called Ruben Bake, you serve it with party rye or party wheat bread, I usually make it around Christmas or New Years.

I'm a mayo girl, myself. I've never tried the olive oil kind. I think I'll stick to the real stuff. I was raised on Miracle Whip but haven't had it since I left home! Hmmmm...I don't even remember what it tastes like! But I do agree, it has to have some flavor if you are going to spread it on something! Creamy and white isn't enough! LOL

I have made the switch to Fat Free Miracle Whip. I just can't afford the fat in the regular. I lost forty pounds and have kept it off for 2 years. If you have no weight issues I guess regular is all right. I just made a big bowel of chicken salad with lots of grapes and apples in it... and of course FF Miracle Whip (o:

I grew up on Miracle Whip and love it...and love mayo sandwiches too! I hadn't thought about mayo sandwiches for years, thanks for the fun memories!

I use to eat white bread with Hellman's Mayo and tomatoe sandwiches for the 9 months I was pregnant with my daughter. I still love to eat those when I am at the beach on a hot day. Never just had a mayo sandwich but hey whatever turns you on:)
