Since Safeway stopped producing its Safeway Select* brand of real mayonnaise – which was almost a dead ringer for Best Foods/Hellmann’s – I have been looking for another alternate brand that is equally as good. I finally found one: Raley’s Real Mayonnaise. It’s a bit thicker than Best Foods, but is the real deal, and I think I will be buying this on a regular basis now, given that the (full) price is about $2.50. It’s also an actual quart (32 ounces). Since I want to punish Best Foods for downsizing their quart size to 30 ounces, I’ll be doing that in addition to saving money.
*Note that, in my opinion, the store brand of mayo that Safeway now sells is not very good. It has those off-notes that other store brands have – sort of like wallpaper paste – and does not have a fresh, clean flavor.
