    mayo on things like a burger bun = good

    mayo out of a jar with a spoon = why

    Secret Squirrel certainly something

    People sometimes just... eat a spoon of mayo, which plenty of people around them think is gross. XD But there are people who think eating a spoon full of peanut butter is gross, which is something I do a lot, so??

    I hated mayo when I was little because ew big glob of cold stuff, but it's okay now. I don't use it much, though, so I never buy it.

    However, I do love herring in a fur coat/dressed herring, which involves a lot of mayo. I have a friend who is Russian, her mom made this and I tried it, and... like I take a bite and it's half "what the FUCK" and half "THIS IS DELICIOUS". But I knew I liked most of the ingredients involved already, it's just... I would have never thought to do this.

    Behold the glorious pink monstrosity!

    mayo is disgusting but a necessary evil on my sandwiches, it keeps them from turning my mouth into a pain desert from lack of moisture. i try to sub in avocado whenever i can afford it.

    Try a creamy dressing like this. Some are entirely suitable for bread.

    Love mayo though. Egg salad sandwiches are my awful faves.

    Mayo is equivalent to margarine, which is to say, i sometimes put it on sandwiches to keep the bread from absorbing things.
    Aioli is ok sometimes

    I can't hate mayo though because iirc its the base for caesar dressing, which is my preferred salad dressing

    the only reason mayo exists is for egg salad
    it's just terrible and globby otherwise

    Mayo is good for some things but I would never just... eat it. Plain, by itself. It also kind of grosses me out when egg/potato/chicken salads have huge amounts of mayo in them. Just a light coating for me, thanks.

    I like butter for keeping sandwiches dry. Fight me.

    I don't like mayo plain much but it's A+ on sandwiches or as a necessary ingredient for the vegetable dip my family makes

    (dip recipe as follows: 1 cup mayo, 1 cup sour cream, 1 tbsp dried onion, 1 tbsp parsely, 1 tsp season salt, 1 tsp dill)
    it's excellent i promise

    I like mayo in potato salad and nowhere else, except maybe ceasar dressing. Potato salad is life, though
    Ranch is disgusting and needs to go away. Like immediately.
    Mushrooms are all around awful.

    friend and i bonded once by making a half dozen deviled eggs and eating them all in one sitting


    i can't eat it on plain bread tho, it has to be mixed with something or a sandwich...but like, no one eats spoonfuls of butter either.

    peanut butter is made of peanuts which are eaten by themselves, butter and mayo are mainly fat or oil. i think thats the difference

    i have to admit I'm having trouble imagining spoonfuls of vegemite, but more power to ya!
