Product Review - Hellman's (Best Foods) Light Mayonnaise
And I'm a bit of a mayonnaise snob, too. I only eat Hellman's brand (Best Foods brand to you people west of the rockies - why it has to be different I will never understand). And pretty please, with sugar on top - NEVER EVER call Miracle Whip mayonnaise. You may refer to it as "Abomination."
So for the first few months of doing the Weight Watchers plan this time around I just figured (like all other times) that my love affair with mayonnaise was over and I'd never be eating it again. After all, regular full-fat mayonnaise is THREE PointsPlus PER TABLESPOON. That's a lot for just a tablespoon of anything, even mayonnaise. At first I lived with it. I 'd use the full fat mayonnaise on my sandiwiches and just cut calories/points elsewhere.
And then the skies opened up and the heavens sang to me. "Try the light version," I heard. I fought with the voice in my head. "But it'll taste like ass," I said to the heavenly voice. "Just try it."
So I tried it. And guess what. IT FREAKING ROCKS. At the risk of sounding like a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial, it really does taste much more like the original version than I thought it would. And for only ONE points plus per tablespoon, it works with anything.
I VERYHIGHLYEXTREMLEYMUCH recommend giving it a try if you're a mayonnaise person like me.
