I grew up with Miracle Whip or rather I avoided it because I just didn't like the taste of it. Mom only purchased Miracle Whip when i was growing up so I didn't know about mayonnaise until I was in my mid-teens. I think mayonnaise is much better. To this day my mom still will ask if I want Miracle Whip on my sandwich and I'm 53. No thanks, Mom, I still don't like it.
So how about you? Do you prefer Miracle Whip or mayonnaise?
It depends on what kind of sandwich I am eating. If I add it to grilled cheese, Miracle Whip all the way. If I am eating ham and cheese, Hellman's. Bologna sandwich, usually Miracle Whip. Roast beef, Hellman's.
My mom only bought MW but we called it mayo. When I married my DH was a mayo only man. It was to much trouble to buy both, they didn't get eaten that fast. I quickly became converted to mayo since I didn't really care. The funny thing was, one of my children when she left home discovered MW and really liked it.
