Kewpie Mayo is the smoothest, creamiest mayonnaise you will ever taste. Unlike traditional mayonnaise that is made with distilled vinegar, this Japanese variation is made with rice vinegar. Richer, yellower, and more flavorful, it comes in a convenient squeeze tube so you can use it just as you would regular mayo on sandwiches and more. Kewpie Mayo is also wonderful with Japanese cuisine, on veggies, and as a salad dressing.
Three Fun Facts About Kewpie Mayo
1) A Japanese Staple: Mayonnaise was first introduced to Japan in 1925. Since then, Kewpie Mayo has been a beloved condiment in households throughout the country.
2) What is “Kewpie”? Japanese mayo gets its name from the Kewpie brand of dolls, which first originated as comic strip characters by artist and writer Rose O’Neill. The Kewpie Corporation uses this wide-eyed doll as their logo, which you’ll see on every bottle of Kewpie Mayo.
3) A Special Name for Mayonnaise Lovers? Did you know there’s actually a word in Japanese for people who love mayonnaise? It’s mayora and many people are proud to refer to themselves this way. One taste of this Japanese mayonnaise and you might start calling yourself mayora too!

It's the perfect cross between Hellmans and Miracle Whip. This Japanese mayonase goes great with EVERYTHING from tuna to bacon...to getting caught squeezing it into your mouth in the middle of the night because you're not really wanting food...but the Kewpie.Kristian, Cheyenne, WY
