    I only use mayo for certain things, but I use Miracle Whip for most....what do you use? Let's see where the Hubbers stand!

      Miracle Whip is a mayo on drugs! Well, on a lot of sugar that's for sure. big_smile
      Speaking seriously - not a healthy product.  Stay away from it. I usually use mayo with sour cream like half-in-half, so I can get mayo taste but less harmful ingredients with it. I like the taste of mayonnaise. Habit, nothing but habit.

      I like mayo, except for my potato salad which uses miracle whip.

      I grew up in a Miracle Whip home.  Now I can't stand the stuff.  Mayo all the way!

      Miracle Whip! I like it on sandwiches, macaroni salad, and potato salad-- anything that needs a little bit of tang in the mix. Mayo is just so... plain.

      I'm with ya.  Miracle Whip mostly.  But there are some recipes that require mayo;  the difference in taste between the two can be big.

    I can only get Miracle whip here and I lobby the import stores constantly about getting some real mayonaise in stock - Miracle whip goes off too quick and is a watery excuse of a product !

    I think somebody should whip that inventor good, the one who invented that "miracle" or make him eat that crap every day for a week at least. Total crap!

      Somebody should do the same to whatever genius invented Cool Whip, too. Horrible stuff.

          The Cool Whip is low in carbs compared to other sweet products. This helps diabetics.

            It's supposed to be a replacement for whipped cream, though, and whipped cream has only as many carbs as you put in it. Plus, the ingredient lists look like this:

            Whipped Cream: heavy cream

            Cool Whip: water, hydrogenated vegetable oil (coconut and palm kernel oils), high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, skim milk, light cream, sodium caseinate, natural and artificial flavor, xanthan and guar gums, polysorbate 60, sorbitan monostearate, beta carotene

    I've always thought that Miracle Whip is to Mayo, as Margarine is to Butter. smile

    Only Hellman's mayo for me except when I make my family's Russian dressing recipe...There's no way to make it taste right without Miracle Whip (a comfort food thing, for sure).

    I have never heard of miracle whip, but I like mayo on most things, especially fish and chips.

      My vote is low fat Miracle Whip.

      Try mixing it with dijon honey mustard...perfect on fish.

      I have to admit I like fat-free Miracle Whip to mix with tuna or salmon...but I do like real mayo too.

    It's either Miracle Whip or home made mayo with only the best ingredients. Commercial mayo is the pits.

    That actually sounds pretty good....in what proportion should I mix the two?

    1. Uninvited Writer profile image83
      Uninvited Writerposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I'd say about 3 parts mayo, 1 part mustard...but I just go on the taste.

    I grew up on Miracle Whip, but now prefer a little mayo-- especially homemade, so I know what's really in it.

    Mayo for sure. I think if you add a bit of mustard and sugar, you will get something similar in taste to Miracle Whip.  Not my cup O' tea though.

    I grew up on Miracle Whip...hate to say, since most of you here seem bent on mayo. But, I like them both. : )
