Wrong or right? You decide.

So, we all know that mayonnaise is not health food, yet how many of us have slathered it on our sandwiches. I was shocked in Germany to be asked at the McDonalds by the person at the counter, after ordering "pommes" (fries), "Mit mayo?" And I blurted out, "Was?" She said, again, "Mit mayo?" and then immediately added, in English, "Would you like mayo with your fries?" Sure, sounded interesting. I hated it. On the other hand….if they had offered this. I tried to visit the baconnaise web site, and obviously they are being flooded by hits, due, no doubt, to Amazon mentioning this product.

    I’ve heard of mayo on fries, but I don’t like it. I much rather prefer blue cheese and chopped garlic. :)

    Mayo on fries? Probably not, even if it is bacon flavored. But I was at a restaurant in DC that offered ranch dressing as a dip for your fries. I was intrigued. Not that bad. (Still alternated with the catsup/ketchup dipped, though.)

    I don’t use ketchup on my fries. Seldom use ketchup period. But I do like to dip, if it available, my fries, especially Pommes, which aren’t good for you anyway, in mayo.

    Mayo on fries is good – but only if it’s REAL mayo, not that glop sold as “healthy” that’s full of all sorts of garbage and corn syrup.
    I’ll skip the baconnaise. What next? Brandy-flavored Vegemite?

    25 years ago, I remember visiting The Netherlands seashore and eating a fresh herring sandwich and fries with mayo.
    When in Rome…

    As much as I don’t appreciate mayo on fries, mayo’s close cousin tartar sauce is a natural flavour match, I believe stemming from the combination of fish and chips.

    I’ve heard that, in Canada, they serve french fries with cheese curds and gravy on them. I guess the farther north you live, the more fat you need in your diet.
