Vastly better than the old sweet stuff
I'm one of the folks who really did not like the original, excessively sweet version. The Summer 2015 version I'm tasting now is tangy and delicious. Yeah, the emulsion is a bit broken, but OMG! So yummy! I probably should knock off a coconut for the broken emulsion, but I have faith that you'll get that sorted out in the upcoming version.
Essential Product but Preferred Flavor of Original Formula
I use this mayo for all kind of dressings, dips and marinades- I wouldn't be without it. That being said, I used to use the original formula on it's own, as a condiment, but do not care for the flavor of the new formula enough to use it this way.
Note from Wilderness Family Naturals: The original formula has a bit of evaporated cane juice (raw cane sugar) in it. Some of our customers did not like this and asked us to take it out. Some said it was too sweet. With the new recipe, we have taken out the raw cane sugar and added a bit of monk fruit to offset the tartness of the vinegar, however, it is a bit tarter than the original formula. Some customers really like the change, others do not. It is easier for a customer to add a bit of sweetener to their mayo, if they want it a bit sweeter, than it is to remove the sweetener if you feel it is too sweet.
Soy in Egg Yolks
This looks fabulous, but chickens are fed so much soy today that their egg yolks are loaded with soy proteins. Of course, this is a problem for people sensitive to soy, and especially in a product like mayonaise. Please consider using soy-free eggs like they sell at grassfedtraditions.com. (I have no affiliation with them - I just need a completely soy-free mayo.)
Note from Wilderness Family Naturals: Our mayonnaise is made from the yolks of eggs laid by cage-free chickens that are not fed any soy.
Good mayo but
This batch I just purchased in Aug. 2013 is different. The texture is different and so is the ingredients list. They now use Xanthan Gum which is usually corn derived. It's still a good mayo, but it's not the same product as was offered at the beginning of the year... nor is it, IMO, quite as good. It is, however, still better than anything else out there on the grocery shelves!
Loyal to this Mayo
This mayo is nothing short of divine. Recently, we needed some when it was out of stock - we went into hording mode. It's that good. Really. Tip: One of our favorite dinners is "avocado sandwiches" (sliced avo, sliced tomato, sliced mushrooms, ww bread and WFN mayo). The mayo makes the meal. When we don't have WFN mayo, there's no avocado sandwich night.
