I have seen Duke's next to Hellmann's at the store but old habits die hard so I just kept on buying the Hellmann's. It was not until last week when I "pinned" a recipe for Come Back Sauce that I saw that there was a great mayo debate. People are really fired up on the interwebs over which mayo is the best!
I am looking forward to switching out my Hellman's for Duke's and seeing if I notice a difference over time. Once I have a firm feeling one way or the other I will be ready to join the great mayo debate!
I love a good debate so I felt I needed to try Duke's so I could join the discussion. This week I made my favorite sandwich with mayo: toasted whole wheat, turkey and lettuce. (Yes I know a tomato would have been nice but we all know winter tomatoes are just not right!) I spread Duke's on both slices of toast like I normally do and then took a bite.....
I have to be honest I could not tell that much of a difference. Although it does have more spices than Hellmann's does I did not feel like the the spices took away from or added to Duke's. That being said, Duke's was definitely "real" mayo not like that super gross Miracle Whip stuff. And in all fairness I think that I would have to make my pimento cheese with Hellman's and Duke's side by side and see if there was a clear winner.
