    This bothers me. Have I been settling for imaginary mayo and not knowing it? [​IMG]

    No Chris,
    Chick-Fil-A simply uses another sweetener. REAL (basic) Mayonnaise is simply egg yolks emulsified with an oil (I prefer Olive Oil) and lemon juice---NO Sugar. I guarantee you this mayo is loaded with ingredients with unpronounceable names.

    You realize that only makes the label more absurd?

    Indeed it does. :) P.S. I updated my post, because I forgot lemon juice.

    Most labels and packaging on the products you buy or see for sale are complete BS. "Green", "Organic", all marketing crap. Don't get me started on this...

    "Real" is the most redundant and useless of those terms, given its true antonym.

    I'll tell you something that bothers me......people saying "So" to begin almost everything they say.

    That one makes me think of.."He was like/she was like/I was like". What happened to the word, "said"?

    Erik Redd Lizabeth, baby, I'm comin' to join ya.

    So, Real Mayo is a distinction from the stuff made without egg. Just Mayo is a vegan product and there was a lawsuit a few years ago about what "mayo" meant.

    I can't stand "so" left trailing at the end of a statement!

    We eat Hellman's Real Mayonnaise at my house and I have a family member who leaves the word "so" trailing at the end of a statement (drives me a little wacky). I always want to come back with "So?; So what?". I think the purpose is for me to draw my own conclusion and/or they themselves are afraid to give you their conclusion in case you might not agree. It makes me think of soap opera cliff hangers before each commercial like I have to wait for the next segment to find out what is coming next. It also makes it hard to know if it is now my turn to speak or if they have something more to say.

    Thank you, Steve. I too like traffic lights. You won't catch me stepping off the curb in front of a moving cement truck. Red means stop and green means go. (And yellow does not mean speed like hell before it turns red).

    I too, feel your pain Chris. I just hope I don't see you someday unshaven with worn shoes trekking across the country looking in vain for real mayo.

    And another thing...

    What about "real estate"? Is there such a thing as "fake estate"? "pretend estate"? "surreal estate"? etc.

    You would go crazy growing up in our house.
    I would ask my Dad, "But why?"
    And he would reply, "Because I said so."
