Which do you prefer?

5Miracle Whip
3Mayonnaise with some foods but Miracle Whip with others

Ah, the essential questions of life. But the response curve is totally thrown off by the inclusion of mustard on the list. I have definite feelings one way or the other on the subject of mayo vs. Miracle Whip. But if I have to choose between a real-or-simulated mayo and mustard, I've got to go with mustard. Mayo is primarily for moisture, while mustard is a flavor thing. And although using enough mustard to provide equivalent moisture content is usually spicyness overkill, I'd rather have a dry flavorful sandwich than a moist bland one. So now this opens up the whole mustard issue: brown, yellow, white wine, etc...

mustard AND mayonnaise made with safflower or canola oil instead of soybean oil.

Honey mustard

Miracle Whip. There is no other possibility.

No Miracle Whip! Eeeewwwwww! I'll eat mayonnaise, but prefer 'salad dressing, generic' or light mayonnaise. In squeeze tube/bottle, if available, but I haven't found any around here. And for sandwiches in general, mustard is more important than mayo.

I always use Miracle Whip. *** Lizzie, I wanted you to pick which you would rather have above the others. I have got to agree with you on Hellmanns, it tastes icky. *** ron I figured I would throw in mustard to avoid the complaints from people who only use mustard. *** daver, Miracle Whip is salad dressing, it says so on the label.

Miracle Whip or store brand "salad dressing" mayonnaise

it'd have to be mayonnaise.. but I don't use it in anything other than tuna or egg salad...

Miracle whip is an abomination.

Salad dressing.
**doom: But the inverse is not necessarily true and is not true in my particular case.

Mustard. Mayo is OK but my SO hates it with a passion so I've learned to adjust.

Multiple Choice! These days, I use mustard over all others, because it is lowest in fat. I also use Miracle Whip, but I've cut down. I don't like mayonnaise, and Hellmanns can kiss my big ol' white butt. *smooooch!*
**doom: I know, but depending on the food item, I will choose mustard over mayonnaise, and vice versa. That's why I cried for multiple choice. :) For tuna, I'd never use mustard, but I would never use Miracle Whip for ham&cheese.
**bill: doesn't one have eggs in it, and the other does not?

Ever look at the ingredients of Mayo vs. Miracle Whip - not very different...
*** Liz, I'm not sure. I thought it was more that one had more vinegar than the other (both had a little egg and a ton of vegetable oil). I should check... Hey, did you ever see them make it on TV with one of those hand-held blending devices. You take a jar of oil, drop an egg in it - then blend! I think vinegar and salt are also usually added... (I'm just full of speculative half-assed bits of info today)

..and Best Foods at that (Helman's in the East).

Yuk, neither. Ptooie, gross. No offense.

Other would probably be my first choice, but on foods that absolutely require lubrication (post thanksgiving turkey sandwiches, tuna salad, etc.) Miracle Whip is my first choice. The only application I have for mayo is things like coleslaw and potato salad where it's less of a flavor and more of a binder.

You forgot "Nayonaise" or other brands of tofu-based/veggie spreads.
mustard can die now.
I prefer oil on my subs when I get them at a real sub shop.

Helmann's mayonnaise is the only spread for me, although i often put both helmann's and mustard on my ham sandwiches

Mustard. Preferably Honey Mustard or Maple Mustard or a whole grain kinda chewy mustard. The only time I'll use mayonnaise is on leftover-turkey sandwiches and that's cause of bad imprinting when I was a kid. Oh, or I'll eat it in ham salad too. Same thing, though, bad imprinting. It's pretty easy to make mayonnaise. Soy... MUSTARD?? What's the point? What's the nasty ingredient in mustard you're replacing with soy?

I prefer mustard not just on sandwiches but also in prepared foods (tuna salad) whose recipes ordinarily call for mayo.

Jen: Westbrae makes a soy mustard. (well, mustard with soy sauce in it, not quite the same idea)

Mayonnaise with some foods but Mustard with others, and Miracle Whip only for special purposes...
posted 15-Jul-1998 11:05am  
I prefer Miracle Whip to Mayonnaise (probably because that's what we used in my house when I was a kid). Whether I use one of these or Mustard depends on what sort of sandwich, and what I'm in the mood for.

I LOVE mustard. So many great types out there to try. We were camping out in Europe with friends many years ago & every time we got near a city well known for its mustard, we had to buy mustard. I cannot live without it, but have a relative who loathes it & I think she is missing out!

May and mustard, particularly in tuna salad and on deli sandwiches. Miracle Whip is a last resort.

I can't eat mustard because it makes me sick. But I do like it.
