Love mayonnaise! One of France's great gifts to the world. I often make my own but it's usually aioli with garlic.

In defense of Miracle whip, I keep some in the house because my mother made our school lunches with Miracle Whip (tuna and egg sandwiches) and they just don't taste right to me when made with mayo. BLT's, conversely, have to be made with mayo. So my fridge always has a jar of Best foods and a jar of MW.

I don't hate mayo but I generally avoid it for health reasons. The taste doesn't come anywhere close to being worth the calories and fat in a a tablespoon of mayo. For the most part the only sandwiches I use mayo in are tuna sandwiches.

It's one of the recipes I use all the times to keep husband healthy, and I posted it on my Heart-Healthy Recipes board on Pinterest, but here's the original link:

I don't love mayo, I like mayo. I will eat mayo based salads though but on sanwhiches I prefer dijon mustard.

Yeah, this is my general thought. I must have gone through a pros/cons thing somewhere in my life, because I just don't use it. For example, I love Potbelly (the chain) sandwiches and I order turkey on wheat with everything except mayo.

Where do you stand on the mayo debate? What about alternative products like miracle whip?

I cannot understand how a person can like Mayo. It's literally the most disgusting thing on the planet. You're literally spreading processed fat on your sandwich, that's beyond disgusting. If I go to a Deli and they cut my sandwich with a knife that was just used to cut a sandwich with Mayo on it and they don't clean off the knife first, my sandwich is ruined.

It really does not make sense to me why anyone would like Mayo. It has no health value and the flavor is atrocious. Then again, it's probably the lowest-class of all condiments, other than Catsup maybe, so that does explain its prevalence.

But what annoys me most about Mayonnaise is the fact that deli worker drones can't understand you when you say "no mayo" and they still slather this horrific substance on my sandwich. If mayo vanished from the Earth tomorrow, the world would be a better and tastier place...plus, a lot of people would be less fat because they wouldn't be getting those extra grams of fat spread on their sandwiches.
