Hellman’s Real Mayonniase

As long as I can remember, we have always been a Kraft Mayonniase family. Every once in awhile, we would get a jar of Miracle Whip (usually by mistake) and suffer eating it. But most of the time, it was Kraft.

The other day, I looked in the cabinet and saw a jar of Hellman’s Real Mayonniase. I thought to myself, who in the world brought this?Well, I know who did, my father. I swear, whenever he goes shopping and they have samples of food they are trying to sell, he buys it! We have had some interesting stuff in the cabinets lately.

While I was making my sandwich, I noticed the recipe for Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake. I think my sister made this once when we were growing up as part of a school project. I just thought it was weird having a cake made with mayonnaise! But I’m sure I ate it at the time.

So now that we have it in the house again, I think I’m going to be adventurous and make it. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
