For that matter, the entire phrase “homogeneous beige slime” applies just as well to good old mayonnaise. Hell, at least half of all condiments are “homogeneous slime” of whatever color.

We’re clearly supposed to be disgusted, but it’s not really clear why.

One of the advantages of being forced to eat the food at church picnics is that, afterwards, nothing else will ever scare you.

I really don’t get the visceral hatred showing up here for Miracle Whip.

It’s just a slightly different-flavored version of mayo.

A lot of people don’t like mayo (hell, a lot of people don’t like pickles or saurkraut.)

Whatever.

Sound and fury over condiments has a history here on BB:

Ketchup, useless as it is for anything but greasy frites, is usually the firestarter but heresies like Miracle Whip can also get things started.

(I may have some opinions on these matters.)

On the other hand people should probably be eating more salads and fewer sandwiches.

“It’s just a slightly different-flavored version of mayo”

What sugary textureless brand of mayo are you consuming such that you’d make this comparison?

Boing Boing gets amazingly furious when people like the wrong food. Don’t even mention Olive Garden around here. Folks will flip their shit.

Sort of. It was designed to be budget/diet mayo – it’s made by whipping/emulsifying a little bit of actual mayo with salad dressing. Made to be cheap & less fatty, with a lot more sugar and vinegar. As a sandwich spread it’s actually a nice flavorful alternative to actual mayo sometimes, and works well with egg salad. But for kids like me who were told it was mayonnaise, discovering the truth of actual mayo later on made Miracle Whip feel like a betrayal. And good lord it’s nasty when hot.

Yes, this. It’s not like there is plan afoot to eradicate mayo and replace with Miracle Whip or Salad Cream or anything else.

It’s like some people want us to have fewer condiments or something.

Yeah, that was me. I came to appreciate mayo later, but fake-mayo has it’s place, just like margarine.

I can’t talk for anyone else but you do know that I’m not being entirely serious, don’t you?

Now, onions I do have a problem with. They make me ill for days and seem to be in everything, especially when food has new or improved recipes. Making food from basic ingredients involves a lot of planning ahead when you are already disabled, so that can’t be a regular option.

Okay that will be my nightmare fuel for the rest of the week… thanks, I think.

Edited to maintain factual consistency.

Um. Did you change something? Not sure where my facts were slipping.

I think you misspelled “unlike” as “just like”.

“But for kids like me who were told it was mayonnaise, discovering the truth of actual mayo later on made Miracle Whip feel like a betrayal. And good lord it’s nasty when hot.”

That’s my FREAKIN’ issue right there: Childhood realization to my dad’s Orwellian food lubricant revisionism, if you will…
