What ever you do, don't eat this...



Saw it for the first time at the store this morning. Decided on a whim to buy a small bottle and try it. Bad decision. Most disgusting thing I've tasted in years. Was like eating vaseline. Learn from my bad choice, and get reglar salad dressing instead.

I tried the "free" version some years ago and it was really bad. I do like the "light" version though.

There are some things that you should use Miracle Whip for and some things you need mayonnaise for.

Miracle Whip is seriously nasty. Someone spilled sugar in some mayonnaise and decided to sell it, perhaps as a joke. Really, who eats that crap?

My roomate does. I hate Mayo and Miracle Whip so I won't be going near the new one at all.

I dig real mayonnaise (preferred brands are Duke's and Hellman's) and put it on all meat based sandwiches as well as on my fries. I don't like Miracle Whip specifically for the reason shaun3000 rather agressively mentioned. BTW, what is it "free" of?

Miracle Whip > Mayo.

Mayo seems too thick for me.

It ain't nothin' but a thing without that tangy zip.

I agree that fat free products are usually disgusting. The ironic thing is that most manufacturers of these products compensate for the loss of taste in fat-free products by pumping up the sugar content.

I buy my groceries at Aldi, so I seldom have name brand salad dressing, but I only use mayonnaise for one or two recipes I make. Everything else gets salad dressing. It's the only way to make tuna, chicken, potato, egg, and pasta salads as far as I'm concerned.

Fat free salad dressing is as much an abomination as fat free cream cheese, low fat peanut butter, and low carb bread.

Fries? OMG, that just sounds nasty! I thought only cheese or ketchup went on fries.

On the bright side, it's also probably good for lubricating your fist like vaseline.

I go "light" with my mayo. The "free" stuff is, as you state, the wrong consitency.

Just like fat-free cheese.

Cheese should melt on my nachos, damn_it!

Is this thread from the '80s or something? I've been eating Miracle Whip Free for ten or fifteen years. Like most things "diet" or "free", you have to adjust to it, but once you do, it tastes just fine.

It just occurred to me with this thread that never in my life have I tasted Miracle Whip.

As for fries, I eat them with yellow mustard. Ketchup is too sugary for me, and I'd rather have the kick from mustard.

Totally. I would rather have one teaspoon of the real thing than a full serving the fake stuff. It's nasty.

In the Netherlands, fries with mayo is a very popular snack. What's really disgusting is that there aren't very many fat people over there. You'd think they'd all be pie wagons, but no.

Yeah, I picked up the habit while living overseas. It's a good thing too, since I don't like ketchup much, and my fries were always naked (well, except for salt & pepper) up til then. Now, a grilled bratwurst with ketchup and curry powder is quite nice, I have to admit.

I never hooked onto mayo on fries, but I do like it on a baked potato now and then. Picked that one up in the UK.

And I love the sweet potato fries that more American places are serving now. Hold the mayo on those, too.
