I actually would rather not have either.  BUT, if I had to choose it would be Miracle Whip.  Mayo makes me gag.  I've called and complained to drive-thrus where I have SPECIFICALLY requested no mayo (because I'd rather eat a dry sandwich) and the person ignored my request and put mayo on anyways.  Vile, nasty, putrid stuff.

Do you people who like MW use it in things like potato salad?  I can't imagine anything yuckier, except maybe egg salad with MW.  I think maybe the only way to make an egg nastier is to mash it all up with MW.

You can put it in potato salad or tuna salad or kidney bean salad.   I believe you could put it in egg salad but I don't eat egg salad.

Miracle Whip is putrid lol
My in laws use the fat free MW. It's literally gray in color. It even SMELLS gray, if that makes sense.

Miracle Whip and Cool Whip are the same thing! That is just wrong, not to mention - evil :fury:

I'm with you!

Except that I might choose to starve instead of choosing to eat one or the other, because they both gross me out so thoroughly that I'd be afraid eating either one would make me puke to death anyway! :lol:

Miracle Whip makes better deviled eggs than Mayo. Hands down.

I have not tasted Miracle Whip since i was a kid.  I think my mom bought it sometimes as it might have been on sale.
To be honest, I think MW and mayo were interchangeable back then.

I VERY rarely eat potato salad, macaroni salad or egg salad.  IF I eat potato salad, it has to be the mustard variety.  The others I just REFUSE to eat.  Oh, and coleslaw is out of the question as well.  Any of those creamy "salads" run the risk of having mayo in them and that's just f-ing gross.  And, I don't make them at home.  Just not a huge fan.

I will make my own chicken or tuna salad at home, but I replace the mayo with plain greek yogurt instead.  Much healthier for you and I don't really notice a taste difference because I use spices like paprika, dill, curry, etc. to pep up the flavor anyway.

For all of the MW lovers, it is on sale this week at my local grocery store.  Hurry before it is all sold out.  Don't miss the deal of the week.

I always loved my mothers potato salad but when I met my wife I never really liked "her familys" potato salad very much. My mothers was much drier and seemed to be made with mustard more so than mayo. My in laws potato salad is much "gushier" as I call it. To wet and gushy for me. I will eat the in laws salad but my mothers much drier and yellow in color potato salad tastes much better to me...

I actually prefer oil and vinegar-based potato salads, but as far as the creamy kind goes, I agree with you.  I don't want to eat a bowl of potatoes drowned in mayo* - I definitely prefer more of a mustard taste.  The mayo has only one job - to hold everything together.

*Mayonnaise on french fries, especially homemade mayo, is a taste sensation.

That's basically just French dressing.

And it's gross.  My sister-in-law's (I love her, but she is a terrible cook) go-to side dish at the holidays is canned (!) green beans saturated in a bottle of French dressing and heated up to just past lukewarm.  Just thinking about it makes me gag a little.  She says it's a family tradition; their grandmother raised her and my husband and Green Beans a la Pepe le Puke were a featured holiday fave.  My husband tells her that some traditions just need to die.
