Dukes Real Mayonnaise Reviewed

Not just for sandwiches!

My new favorite mayo is Dukes Real Mayonnaise! From what I can gather those of you who either live in the southern part of the United States or perhaps grew up there are very familiar with this condiment. Those of us from the northern regions and perhaps the western regions of this country most likely haven't tried it. Well, I'm here to tell you; we didn't know what we were missing!

Honestly, I have never been a big fan of mayonnaise. About the only time that I used it was when it was called for in a recipe. Since I have discovered Dukes mayonnaise, that has changed. Now, I eat it on sandwiches and use it in those recipes. Shoot, I'm even adding it to recipes that don't really call for it but I think it makes a nice addition. 

This mayo is so creamy! It also has a different taste to it. Personally, the brand that I used previously didn't have much of a flavor to it at all but not so with Dukes. I don't know how to explain it other than there is a bit of a zippiness to the flavor. It is really very tasty! So, now I actually like mayonnaise on a sandwich.

One of my favorite things to have for lunch is an egg salad sandwich. Making my recipe using Dukes makes it even more enjoyable than it was before!

Bev's Egg Salad Recipe


8 hard boiled eggs that have been chopped after peeled
1/2 cup Dukes Mayonnaise
1 tsp yellow mustard
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the ingredients with the chopped eggs until mixed well. Spread on bread, bun or crackers.

For those of you who are health conscious enough that you don't use mayo; Dukes is healthier than most brands. There is no sugar added and the cholesterol is lower than most brands. 

If you haven't tried Dukes or perhaps you are not able to get it near you; it can be purchased at Amazon and shipped right to your door. It doesn't get much easier than that folks! I love this stuff so much that I am finding ways to use it that I would have not done in the past with the former brand. Last night, I fixed homemade baked macaroni and cheese and decided to add about a 1/2 cup to my recipe. Oh my goodness! I love my mac n' cheese anyway; adding Dukes just made it even better! 

How about you? Have you tried this brand of mayo? What do you think?

  1. Mayonnaise is once of my favorite condiments! When we first got married, my husband hated mayo, but after 30+ years of my influence, he now loves it too. Ironically, I have never tried the Dukes brand of mayonnaise. I feel I have been missing something! I will definitely put it on my shopping list. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. I've eaten Duke's mayo ever since living down here in Georgia (over 20 years), and, like you Bev, I love it. I'm a mayonnaise lover anyway, so I like to eat what tastes the best. Hope they have it at the stores in Iowa after my move next month. But good to know one can acquire it on Amazon. :)

  3. Love mayonnaise, but I don't think I have ever heard of this brand. I don't think we get this in Canada! I will have to ask my sister to get me some while she is visiting the southern states later this year. Then I will definitely try it and probably wish I could get more....OH dear!

  4. I don't think I've ever tried Dukes. But there is a chef on tv that has been advertising it lately. I've thought about taking a taste test to compare with what I usually buy. I love mayo and use alot of it. I don't know why I've never tried Dukes.

  5. I don't think I've seen that brand here in Canada? I'll have to look to see if our local grocer carries it. Your egg salad recipe makes me want to go make some right this minute! Yum.
