    Default Never buy...

    Survival rule number 1.

    Never buy mayonnaise at the Dollar Store!

    I will never ever make that mistake again!

    Man, we know the feeling. Instead of having Thanksgiving dinner with family, my wife and I are staying home recovering from something we ate. Can't put a finger on what it was but eating is the last thing we want to do today.

    Get well soon.

    Mayo is one of those items that is best when homemade .

    Like an egg salad sandwich, out of a vending machine in the factory floor.... on a Monday in July..... after a week end of thunderstorms....that have knocked out the power a couple of times......

    There is a fine line between a Hero and a Goat.

    Get well soon.....

    Mayo isn't much more than a dollar in a real grocery store anyway.

    A lot of times it isn't the mayo that's bad. It's what you mix in it.

    Dollar store is good for a lot of things, other things not so much. Pretty much anything at the dollar store that contains eggs, dairy, or fish products I tend to stay away from. As another mentioned, it isn't that much more at a real grocery store and I don't like making excessive contributions to the porcelain alter.

    Thing is that I have a dollar store just a couple of miles down the road and the Kroger is another 15 minutes and several more red lights down the road.

    Looking back at the experience the trip might have been worth it.

    Red lights have become so much fun. There are an untold number of people that will sit through a red light, then a green light only coming back to the world just as the yellow light turns red then zip through still trying to finish that text. I have some confidence that the really busy intersections may become the next great gambling mecca. 10-3 on the blonde in the SUV not making it through.....

    It wasn't the Mayo... I spent my misguided youth working in several high class restaurants, do you know where the Mayo is stored... in the plastic bag inside the cardboard box (5 gallons), stored under the food prep table, room temperature, I made lots of Thousand Island, and Ranch dressing with that Mayo.

    My wife always gets that reaction when she drinks any fountain drink. I've seen others get the same reaction. Just one other possibility.

    Worked on equipment in many restaurants...that are not that clean.... or have stuff not stored at proper temps......

    I try not to think about it.
    Oh, Yeah....ice machines can be nasty as well......
    Had a Chinese restaurant....compressor failed on the walk-in freezer....guy didn't like our price on a replacement.

    ANOTHER BAD MAYO: Never buy "organic mayo" from Trader Joe's. Great price, nice small size for little recipes. But the flavor (of fresh, just bought, expiration in 2017), is so OFF, I threw away the food! Still didn't figure out the issue, just thought my taste buds were off.

    Made egg salad with it and even DH who will eat fried cardboard and love it if seasoned right (I love this man!) wouldn't eat it. We took a taste of the mayo and gagged. I had bought 3(!) just for little recipes as my normal Hellman's is bought in giant quantities but once you open that sucker you have to be feeding an army soon. Tossed them all.

    We use mostly Miracle Whip...Lite.....Not sure it is real food or not, but with all sorts of dietary concerns......real mayo had too many flaws.
    Guess we got use to it.....real mayo tastes "off " to me?????

    Never get so drunk that you think eating raw chicken is a good idea.

    I once bought an egg salad sandwich from a cooler in a truckstop by the trans canada highway at roughly 1 in the morning. I was not a happy person the next morning. Never do that. Under normal circumstances I know better.
