Do You Like Mayonnaise?

The other day I was in a meeting and somehow we started talking about mayonnaise and its likeability level. DearSugar confessed that she's not a huge fan and several others stated that they found the condiment down right disgusting. When it was my turn to speak in a voice barely above a whisper I said, I actually really like mayonnaise and it's because I do! Homemade mayonnaise is absolutely wonderful -smooth and creamy and easily enhanceable. Simply put, mayonnaise is a homogeneous mixture of egg yolk and oil - two incredibly common ingredients that are seriously low on the nasty scale. The way that I see it is you either like mayo or you don't and I'm wondering if I'm the only one who likes it on sandwiches and with calamari and French, do you like mayonnaise?

EWWW! Pretty much the grossest thing ever! I can't even look at it or it will make me gag!

I don't like mayonnaise. I LOVE IT! In fact, since I have..rather large assets, my mom used to always tell me that maynnaise makes your boobs grow, so I'd quit eating it so much. It didn't work! (Though, I hope she was wrong about that, I'd hate to think these things would shrink if I quit eating it!)

I'm not a big fan of it. I'm always trying different recipes to take it's place if I ever do need it.

I will never give up mayo for as long as I live. In NJ, I used to request EXTRA mayo on my subs, and here in CA, Jack in The Box puts mayo on their burgers. Ahhhh, how can something so good be SO bad?!

Mayonnaise.....oh my, I can only shudder at the number of meals my nan used to make with mayonnaise in them. Hers was good, no doubt about it but she would always put too much in everything. It became sort of disgusting and I don't use any mayonnaise in my own meals - a matter of personal choice, amount of calories and probably it wouldn't be a good addition to what I cook anyway. Only some salads and dishes are worth the effort but it's been a while since I cooked any..

I hate mayo. For some reason I like restaurant ranch dressing but other than that I won't eat anything made with it. No potato salad, pasta salad, nothing.

It depends on the brand.

mmm i LOVE mayonnaise! my friends used to (and still do!) make fun of my love for it. at school, i would grab like 3 packets of mayo for one sandwich and they would always laugh at me. i know its not the healthiest food ever, but its just so good! i'm not a fan of miracle whip though. has anyone noticed that it has a strangely sweet taste to it? or is that just me?

I love mayo. Mayo makes almost everything better. I make my own at home when i have the time, otherwise I only will eat Hellmans. Best Foods (even though it's the same company) tastes different to me. And people that like crap like Miracle Whip are weird.

I hate mayo on sandwiches- it completely ruins the sandwich! In fact, I hate mayo except in egg salad or tuna salad.

Oh, I love mayonnaise, although I try not to eat it too often. I usually buy the Japanese Kewpie brand - tasty! Especially love it mixed with a little ketchup when I eat fries.

LOL @ Mamrosa. That is like when I was making a casserole and subbed sweetened condensed milk for that other eagle brand milk. Ewww gross.

Mayo grosses me out a it looks and what it's made out of but every now and then..I might spread on a THIN layer for a sandwich, but for the most part, if I'm eating out, I request no mayo.

I hate it and will actually tear out the bread on a sandwich that has touched the mayo. YUCK! I also won't eat potato salad or really anything that remotely looks like it might have mayo in it. Dijon mustard is much better and pretty much goes with everything - sandwiches, fries and you can make potato salad with vinaigrette. Yum and much less fat!

I would like to say that mayonaisse itself does not cause food poisoning. I had to take a food borne illness class for a previous job in food service. It is the bacteria in the food combined with the mayo. Mayo itself will just spoil. Spoiled food doesn't make you sick, bacteria and other food borne bacteria is what makes you sick. and salmonella actually lives mostly on the outside of the egg shell. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

Oh, and on a side note, I was making a red-white-and blue potatoe salad for 4th of July and tried to use yogurt as a mayonaise substitute. That's the day I will always remember that 1 substitution is ok but using vanilla yogurt to sub for plain to sub for mayo doesn't work. I'm sure if I would have used plain yogurt it would have tasted great (with less food poisoning issues as well!)

I really don't like it and especially dislike it when it shows up on lunch without any other options. That's when I get upset, it should be on the side not on the sandwhich!
