It is a Mexican-made mayonnaise sold under the McCormick brand.

I didn't notice much of a difference ... unless you get the variety with lime.

I'm sure I've had it on elote from vendors. I've never specifically purchased it, though.

Are you talking the one with olive oil and lime? I love that one. I also love Japanese kewpie mayo if you can find that as well.

American mayo? Not so much.

Mayonesa is Mayonnaise in Spanish. There is not difference between them except the brand specific recipe. Just like ketchup in Mexico is essentially the same as in the U.S. Sometimes it is spelled "Catsup" in Spanish but it is the same thing.

^^^this. If you get the one with lime, there's a little difference, but otherwise, just mayonnaise.

I buy Kewpie once in a while, but I don't really get the hype.

I'm ok with Hellman's, Duke, or Blue Plate.

Yep. I've still never purchased the McCormick brand, and the only Mexican food I routinely eat that seems to use it is elote, so that's probably the only time I've had it.

My mayo brands of choice for purchase are Hellman's and Duke. I don't really care for any others.

I'm partial to Duke's, especially when it's on sale for $2 a jar.

Yeah, I always get it at military commissaries, where it's sold at cost. Otherwise, it's not something you can find in grocery stores in this region. Commissaries are great for stocking a wide array of non-regional brands, though.

I like the lime as there is a difference in using that instead of lemon/vinegar as most mayo is made with at stores. Plus it's more savory than most mayo.

I use it when I make arroz imperial. I use Japanese mayo for everything else.
