    Mayonnaise - which?

    Yes, I know clever people make their own, but I can't be assed.

    In Aus and the UK I buy "Hellman's lite."

    I like it, it's firm, creamy and tasty.

    We used to use it on all kinds of things; salads, baked spuds, spinach and eggs.

    BUT, unavailable up here in the North.

    Nearest thing I can get is

    "Kraft Realmayo."


    Occasionally, from Big C in Chiang Rai.

    If its very well chilled it's ok but it's not "brilliant".

    A mate of mine suggested adding vinegar, but he died.

    Any suggestions or alternatives?

    Use aro or savings lite mayo and add the vinegar to balance the sugar ... tastes good .

    Must refrigerate to keep it mixed and fluffy.

    If you want a nice sauce mix the lite mayo and Rozza tomato sauce with vinegar and some pepper and oregano.

    Buy the one you like in bulk when you can, it doesn't need refrigerated storage until its been opened.

    Tesco's deliver UK groceries to France you could try them..........

    or, make your own. Real easy: BBC - Food - Recipes : Mayonnaise

    Beware though, homemade mayonnaise should be used within a couple of days *maximum*

    (and stored in the fridge of course!)

    Buy Kraft imported its the best here. Hellmans and Best Foods are the same. If ya live west of the Rockies you eat Best Foods, east of the Rockies you eat Hellmans.
    The Hellmans brand seems to be exported more than Best Foods. Kraft is by far the best here.

    I would go further than that
    It is the best mayo I have found in thailand
    Low sugar content as well, I can't stand sweet mayo

    Kraft is the best. Hellman's is more watery.

    I am and always have been a Hellman's guy. That is until I relocated permanently to the Philippines, where it can't be found. Make do with Kraft. Hate the sweet stuff.

    ^Peanut butter disappears in moments; can't keep it on the shelves. For some reason, neither kid cares about mayo, which I have always considered a major food group.

    Is PB there very expensive. The smallest jars are at 100b here. I pay 3 bucks for 24 ounces back home at a Cosgo or Walmart.

    ^It's not too bad here. Wife belongs to one of those membership only supermarkets (used to be called PriceMart; now it's S&R). You can find things there which you can't outside, even in the big (and generally pretty good) supermarkets here. They also have larger size items than on the outside. So, big jars of peanut butter are only about 20% more than what they would be in the US, and much cheaper for the quantity than buying the smaller jars on the local economy. They are spotty, and don't always have everything, so you buy in bulk when they do. One thing which is impossible to find here is crackers (I mean real ones, with salt, like Ritz or Keebler). S&R occasionally has Ritz, and is the only place in 14 years I have ever found crackers that don't taste like cookies. Fucking Flips love that sugar!!!!

    Suits my taste as well. Buy my saltine crackers at Lotus. Pretty close to ones in US. Haitai brand.

    ^ Easy to make your own crackers.
    I got some Kraft mayo awhile back. Tastes like that yucky Brit salad cream. So, I add some dry mustard whenever I use it. Not bad. Home-made or Hellman's is way better.
