Miracle Whip all the way.  Mayo too bland.

Putting mayo on a sandwich is like putting Maroon 5 on your turntable.  Wretching is inevitable.

I'd rather eat a dry sandwich than put that sweet crap on it.  I can't even figure out what kind of chemistry produces that taste.  At least with mayonnaise you know the tangy flavor comes from the lemon and salt.  You can make mayonnaise easily at home (and homemade mayo is awesome).  Unless you work in a lab, you can't replicate Miracle Whip.

Mayonnaise vs. Miracle Whip seems to be a regional thing.  My husband grew up eating Miracle Whip in the midwest.  I've converted him to mayonnaise.

My husband was also a MW fan but I do the grocery shopping and insist on buying only tasty, edible food.

Like you Mara, I also think MW is way too sweet and has an off-chemical taste. And it has this weird shine to it.

I think I accidentally insulted my MIL once by making a, "MW is nasty" comment. They grew up eating that stuff. But then I showed her all the onions I had in my pantry and all was better.

Is she still hell-bent on putting onions in every dish??

Oh yes! And now that I have an iPhone, I can text her for onion recipes! She'll be here next month. I will be going to Costco before her arrival and buy a very massive bag of onions.

(For the record, I actually really like my MIL. We talk every weekend or every other weekend for hours.)

I grew up eating salad dressing. That stuff that kind of looks like mayonnaise but isn't? My mom used to put that on everything. Weird stuff.

There's a time and place for each.

You tell me your sandwhich fix'n's, I'll tell you which to use. I'm a Guru at this.

On the whole, my favorite 'sandwich spread', if I could only have one, would be Hellman's mayo. Not Kraft mayo. Not Heinz mayo. And though some are occasionally alright, I'm not going to risk any off-brand mayo either. Hellman's or bust. In fact, if I can't get Hellman's, I'll probably go Miracle Whip over anything else.

But again, there's a time and place for each.

The only line ever inspired by mayo would be in front of the porcelain god.

Out of curiosity, I went through to see what the totals were:

11 for the awesomely amazing Mayo
3 for the nast that is Miracle Whip

:P

There's always that 2-3 people in a group who have no sense at all.

Trying to determine whether the 11 people who actually like mayo have no taste buds at all or hyperactive taste buds that can actually discern flavor in that paste.

Got to be the former.
