I grew up as a big mayo guy (hmm, that sounds nasty), but went through an experimental "Miracle Whip" phase in college.  Now I'm strongly back in the mayo camp.

Here's something that I've always wondered...I grew up with Hellmann's mayo, but when I moved to the west coast, it's all about Best Foods' mayo.  Similar logos and jingles ( Whistle"Bring out the Hellmann's/Best Foods, and bring out your best"), same company behind both products, but on the label it says something like it's sold as Best Foods west of the Rockies and Hellmann's east of the Rockies.

Some of you guys live in the Rockies, I think, so I was wondering which (if either) mayo brand people in the Rockies get. Huh?

While not exactly "in the Rockies" we get Best Foods in Utah. Probably need someone from Colorado to weigh in on the topic.

I grew up firmly entrenched in the Mayo camp. I think Miracle Whip is disgusting, and always have. The wife is just the opposite. For a long time we kept both in the fridge, but since we've been on a bit of a health kick, we don't regularly use either. I keep a bottle of light mayo (I know, I know) around for specific applications (tuna fish, chicken salad, etc), but generally on sandwiches I'll just go with mustard.

Hmmm. Time for a new poll.

I didn't think the Wasatch Mountains were technically part of the Rockies. Have I been wrong all these years?

I believe you have been.  I've always held to the belief that the Rockies stretch from the Front Range to the Wasatch (at this latitude anyway).

OMG, I'm just been reading up on this on wikipedia:
Quote
When Best Foods acquired the Hellmann's brand, it was decided then that the respective recipes for both mayonnaises be preserved. Today, the two products are made in the same plant. However, at least as recently as March 2003, the recipes were almost, but not entirely, identical. From the company's FAQs at the time:

The products are basically the same. Both trademarks evolved simultaneously -- Hellmann's in the East and Best Foods in the West. Taste preferences vary; some people find that Best Foods mayonnaise is slightly more tangy.

Both labels contain the same list of ingredients in the same quantity order: soybean oil, water, whole eggs and egg yolks, vinegar, salt, sugar, lemon juice, calcium disodium EDTA, and natural flavors. This implies that Best Foods may contain more lemon juice, although the relative quantity order is the same as the Hellmann's recipe.

That explains everything!  The recipes for Hellmann's and Best Foods are different!  It all makes sense now and might explain the mayonnaise malaise I've felt since moving west.

Enough of this tangy western crap, the next time I go back East, I'm stocking up on Hellmann's!  I wonder if the airlines would find it suspicious to see a passenger with a suitcase full of mayo.
