Yuk! Miracle whip? Gotta be Dukes, mayonaise of the south. Can't be any of the Helman's stuff either, just a dandy French want a be. This has to be one of the most good natured debates among friends in the south - Dukes vs. Helman's. Aren't many down here that would put the miracle whip on a tomato sandwich though. Maybe in some potato salad or other salad, but not spread on a sandwich.

LOL Miracle Whip was all I ever used, but I have switched to Mayo here recently. I don't have a clue what kind you are talking about, though I'd prob give it a try if I could find it! BTW, I am a Southern Girl, just stuck in the North! LOLOL
Probably one of those things that simply boils down to 'what mamma used'. One thing for sure, there ain't no substitute for a good ole juicy tomato sandwich. Only recently did I hear what I guess is a Georgia term. They call a juicy tomato sandwich a "sink sandwich." Guess it is because the sandwich is so juicy and drips so much, it was often eaten over the sink, or so the saying goes.
A sink sandwich, that is a new one for me! LOL A mater like that I'd just have to put it on a plate with some salt and eat it allllllllllllllll gone! LOL Some might think it really strange, but I love maters with my mashed taters!
BAMA Mayonnaise has been a favorite in the heart of the south for over 50 years. Its formula was developed specifically for consumers wanting a distinctly southern mayonnaise. BAMA Mayonnaise combines premium ingredients to achieve our southern taste and texture. An exotic blend of spices is added to soybean oil of the highest quality and pasteurized egg yolks, then blended to a smooth consistency and texture. Finally, a touch of lemon is added to achieve the ultimate in southern mayonnaise.
The description sounds a lot like Dukes with that kick of lemon.
Did a quick search and guess what. C.F. Sauer, like the mustard, produces both Dukes and Bama. Bet they market each as a separate regional product.
I don't like mayonnaise at all. I got food poisoning as a kid after something bad at a picnic and have totally disliked mayonnaise since. A doctor once told me that food poisoning from foods with mayonnaise occur more frequently than any other food.
My favorite sliced tomato sandwiches have bacon in them.
