BTW, what is it with Duke's mayo?  This is not the first time I've heard about this.  Mayo is a very simple thing.  What makes it so much better than, say, Hellman's?

Raised on it....make a potato salad with it.....or put it on a tomato sandwich and you will see the difference....they tell me that it's loaded with stuff that ain't good for you so you just know its got to be good.

There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

I've lived in the South almost 35+ years and never bought Duke's.

Or Hellman's.

I'm a Kraft only mayonnaise. I could eat it by the spoonful.  :drool:

Might try a small jar of Duke's next time I go to the store and see.
Just hand over the chocolate...back away slowly...far away....and you won't get hurt....

Love Dukes!  Can't find it elsewhere, so Hellmanns it is.  Love grits too.  And polenta.

Had a friend from Ohio that used to come down to visit. His wife would throw away stuff to make room for a couple of cases of Duke's Mayo going back.

I thought John Wayne always used Miracle Whip?  :fuelfire:

I'm pretty sure that Duke's & Hellman's are the same, just different names for different parts of the country. I COULD be wrong.

I always bought Hellmans until I went south and found Dukes . . . (that sounds slightly kinky to me  :-) )

Duke's and JFG are the best mayo I've ever bought.

I don't care for Hellman's.
