8. Heinz Real Mayonnaise
When you think of the brand name Heinz, you probably think of ketchup. And, it’s no wonder — the company has been selling the stuff since 1876. Since then, they’ve branched out into other areas, including mustard and, of course, mayonnaise — which they launched in 2018.
Thankfully, their mayo is still young, so they have plenty of time to perfect it. So why do I say this? Well, let’s just say that not too many people are fond of Heinz Real Mayonnaise.
Mashed.com said it tastes like chemicals. Amy Tao of Based Wellness said it seemed to be pretty generic. On the other hand, Taste of Home magazine said it’s great for spreading on a sandwich or hoagie, although they did admit the mayo had a bit of a vinegar bite and was slightly peppery.

7. Duke’s Real Mayonnaise
Southern cooks swear by Duke’s Real Mayonnaise when it comes to making potato salad. In fact, Taste of Home magazine rates it as the best mayo for salads.
It’s thick, creamy and tangy, which is perfect for foods that require a vinegary bite. Unfortunately, Duke’s has a lot of fat and contains the preservative Calcium Disodium EDTA.
