And you thought that SNL skit was a joke. There is really a mayo store in NYC.

Brooklyn's Beloved Artisanal Mayo Shop Is Moving, Owner Says 'This Is Not Gentrification'

I'm not sad, I hate mayo. But I kinda wanted to go to take an ironic photo.

Im in Brooklyn and had no idea there was a specialty mayo shop! Ive seen hot sauce shops and went to one recently for the first time. Rents for everything continue to rise. We lost FAO Schwartz because of high rents. Maybe I can visit if I have time before they go away.

Stores getting priced out of neighborhoods is an old story in NYC.

I can't even imagine how many jars of mayo need to be sold each month to just make the rent.

Yeah, I never heard of it either.
Can't imagine it being the basis of a successful store.

Now, I wonder what it tasted like. I know homemade mayo is good, much better than store bought.

Their mayo costs between $20 (for regular) to $40 (ghost pepper) per pound.

I personally love their Smoked Paprika mayo, but its $7.50 for a small 4oz jar. I haven't tried all the flavors though.
