For some reason, this scene from An Officer and a Gentleman popped into my head after reading your post.

Hellmann’s Attacks Upstart Non-GMO Company With Lawsuit Claiming Their Product Is ‘Not Real Mayo’
Hellman's didn't change..America did.
The same ingredients only there's not much choice now with regards to GMO which has permeated society. Soybeans alone are about 92% GMO which leaves only the niche players to use non GMO soybeans.

Crops are grown in open fields. Winds blow. It's all contaminated now with GMO if you ask me.

I've tried other brands and none compare to Hellmann's so I'm sticking with that.

Whoopty-doodle.
Two companies arguing over a name.
GMO? Doesn't bother me a bit.
And where in that article did it say "eggs from chickens not all that healthy"??
Your vegan politics are showing.

The government has reversed itself on eggs. They are now healthy. And so is butter.
Glad I didn't listen to them cause I like eggs and butter and never gave them up.

Brought my Suburban in to the shop on Monday morning because the light on the dash for the ABS came on. I didn't seem to have any problem with the brakes but it's not something to wait and see. The shop has always been a busy one but since the biggest shop in town burned down a couple of months ago my garage is extra busy, there is almost no parking left and they have room for 40 or 50 vehicles all around the 6 bay building. Late Wednesday afternoon they called to ask what I needed done because D doesn't bother to write work orders when they come in, thinking he can keep it all in his head.

It was just the idiot light, not the brakes but I did need a new headlight, new wiper blades and they also fixed a dome light button that was broken and it resulted in the light being on non-stop. I had to pull the fuse to shut it off.

I got the 'burb back this afternoon. As usual they brought it to the house since I'm just a mile away and then I drove the mechanic back and paid the bill, a whopping 88 bucks for parts and labor. I think that the hourly labor rate is still less than half what I'd been used to in the Bay Area ten years ago.

When I got home I noticed something next to the walkway to the side door, thought it was a torn and curled up bit of tan plastic grocery bag but on closer inspection realized it was a snake skin, about 2 ft. long and an inch around. YIKES!

Got a couple of neighborhood teens to help me get the 6' x 10' modular chain link dog run panel that I use as a gate across the back of the driveway back on its hinge pins. I think it must have been that bad old goat Zugor pushing against it, maybe got a horn stuck in the links and then lifted his head.

Depends on what kind of eggs, organic/freerange or not. Same with butter.

I am not vegan. Check the source of the chicken feed if you want to know how "healthy" the eggs are, it's a no-brainer.

Hellmann’s Attacks Upstart Non-GMO Company With Lawsuit Claiming Their Product Is ‘Not Real Mayo’
Unilever, the great food giant and parent of Hellman's/Best Foods, sued the makers of Just Mayo because of fraudulent advertising whiich could harm both makers and consumers of legitimate mayonnaise. It contains no egg yolk which is required to label a product mayonnaise. If an outfit did this in France the principals would have landed in prison.

They would have had to call it a mayonnaise substitute; in fact, they call it nothing. There was apparently an agreement with Unilever. It's nothing more than a vegetable spread.

Apparently you don't believe that consumers are entitled to honest advertising. We prefer real mayonnaise. We love the businesses that serve us honestly.

A year ago she swore in a DM that she was a vegetarian who ate fish. A few weeks ago, however, she slipped up and posted her plans to make chicken soup. When confronted, she stated that she was a vegetarian who ate chicken.

The correct adjective to describe her is not vegetarian; it is sanctimonious.
