We all eventually get one of those stalkerish types who enjoy following you around in various topics and referencing comments you made in one in others despite them not being relevant.

Kind of like these guys?

The main guy eats mayo with everything, even all by its self. Thanks again for telling me about them, by the way. They're funny.

Yep.

That's basically my version of the food channel.

Oh, I would LOVE to see what Augustus Masonicus would make of my mayonnaise habit. I put it on every damn thing other than dessert foods.

Roast dinners, pasta, breakfast lunch and dinner... It matters not. Everything is improved with a little Hellmanns in the mix!


Have you ever got a Scotch egg and taken a bite out and then injected squirty mayonnaise into it so every porky eggy bite has evenly distributed mayonnaise?

So so wrong, especially for us beardy types...

Indeed I have. I also eat it with steak and kidney pie.

I take a bite out, suck out some filling, and either spoon or squirt Mayo into the gap which is made by my efforts, then take another delicious bite...I eat like an animal though.

This is a bit random, but do you notice any difference in taste and slight texture between Hellmans in a jar, and the Hellmans squeezy?

I can't eat the jar stuff, it tastes weird to me, but the squeezy stuff is lovely, even though it's supposed to be the same stuff, just different packaging.
Maybe it's me and my weirdness with food, but I swear i can taste the difference like night and day!

Yes, absolutely. It's the consistency. Jarred Mayo is in a glass container, which means it is stationary for most of the transit period between factory and plate. That is why it becomes almost jelly like in consistency. The squeezy stuff is packaged in plastic, which is not as rigid, and thusly there is more movement within the packaging. What I often find is that because there is more room for movement, the consistency tends to become a little more liquid, less viscous, because the contents are able to move around more within the packaging.

This will result in the same exact chemical constituents, hitting the tongue in a different fashion depending on the vessel in which they were contained.

Face down in your food, sans utensils? That must play hell with the beard.

They have these syringes that are used for giving babies medicine. Those would suit your purposes nicely for injecting mayo into food. There are also ones made specifically for injecting seasonings into meat. How does that grab you?

So am not crazy!
that makes a lot of sense, you still get the deniers that make you question yourself though, or at least i do!

Hellmans squeezy is delicious, I couldn't eat it how you described though, ruining a sunday roast is unthinkable, reminds me of those people who just cover it in mint sauce, but saying that, am a Northerner and put gravy on nearly everything, gravy makes everything better!

The big difference is in the oil content.

Mayonnaise is technically an emulsification of oil and using egg yolk as an emulsifier, "low fat" mayonnaise has a lot of water added to reduce the fat content.

In order to get a "squeezy" product that will not stick or cloy to the plastic squeezy container it will have a more water based formula.

This may seem like a bad thing but a fully oil based mayonnaise in the traditional sense is actually quite unpleasant and the addition of water to the blend improves the product.

Many modern chefs use what they call "emulsions" which are in fact a water based emulsion and have a far better "feel" and consistency.

If you have some free range eggs and some water, a splash of oil, another of vinegar and a whisk you can make at home something that is far more interesting than the product you buy from Helmans, it is also why you can buy supermarket value mayonnaise for about 36p. It is in essence water in a jar.

That's funny you say that, because the squeezy one has a creamier taste, almost like they have more yolk or something, in my opinion anyway. So taking more oil out and adding water would explain that creamier taste.

Great post, thanks for that!

Yes, it is something most people struggle. And it is because they lack mindfulness. Once you are more mindful of life and incredible it really is. You will appreciate it more and you tend to get less stressed out and angry and the little things. And in the end it's all little things! If you're asking this question then I think you have found mindfulness!

Cheers!

It pisses me off to no end when somebody says they'll do something and then doesn't. Example: Wednesday was my day to do dishes. My friend was going out to collect wood from where the power company came through and cleared trees back in the right of way for the power lines. My other friend says to go ahead and help him, that she would do the dishes. Does she? Hell damn no! So here it is dish day again and I got stuck with twice as much. Hell, three times as much. Pisses me off. When you say you're going to do something, do it. Otherwise you're lying. I hate liars.

I just hate litter bugs. It makes me wonder what their homes are like. Do they throw trash around there? As for cigarette butts, I hate that too. When I'm done with mine I empty it of what tobacco is left and pocket the butt until I can find a trash can. No need to be trashy.

I have a co worker who asks people questions and regardless of the circumstances he will respond to the answer with " what?". He hears them but for some reason wants then to say it twice.

It's such an auto response that he didn't know that he did it until I pointed it out. He still does it. Now after his " what?" I just stare at him until he realizes what he's done.

Oh, and I hate children in movie theaters. I want adult only theaters. 21 and over. No.... not porn theaters.
