  • Mayo tastes good.

    Miracle whip shouldn't even be fed to dogs... it's disgusting.

  • The tangy zip!

    I like Miricle Whip better than mayo....but I don't know about using it in a recipe. That might be too much. It really does have a tang to it!

  • I HATE miracle whip!!! It is the nastiest thing. I only use real mayonaise [[blue plate]] in my pasta salad. I really don't think it will taste the same with miracle whip.

  • IMO, it's like the difference between butter and margarine. You just can't ever compare it to the "real" thing, kwim? But, if you generally like mircle whip anyway, there is only one way to know for sure, try it!

  • I very much dislike mayo, but i love Miracle Whip. I grew up on it and we used it in everything. The taste will be different, but not horrible I would say if you like Miracle Whip anyway.

  • I hate mayo. We only ever use miracle whip in my house. It just isn't a sandwich with out the tasty zip of miracle whip.

  • miracle whip has some spices, such as Paprika, I think. You can use both interchangeably. I personally have never like the taste of Miracle whip and can definitely tell if it has been used in a recipe.

  • miracle whip contains high-fructose corn syrup, mayo does not.
