“ Brand: Heinz / Type: Sauces „
I picked a jar of this up a few weeks ago because it was on special offer and I am very mean! I think I paid £1.50 for this and a jar of the Moroccan flavoured mayo which I haven't tried yet. I couldn't wait to try it as I love garlic and I also love mayo so how could I go wrong? I scooped a large spoonful to go with our Friday night takeout of Pizza and fries. Some of you may question the wisdom of any type of mayo with fries but 6 million Dutchmen can't be wrong! My wife was most sceptical of my culinary combinations but I am happy to report it was a complete triumph. The mayo does have quite a strong garlic flavour which was fine with me as some mayo can be a little bland, especially the cheaper varieties. It was quite thick and creamy although I usually do buy the light brands of mayo in my normal shop. There have been some reports of greasiness to this mayo and there was something of a greasy smear on my plate by the end which may put some people off. I have since tried this mayo with pretty much everything, sandwiches, as a dip with crisps and chopped vegetables, cheese on toast (although this was a bit too oily), boiled potatoes, pies, the list goes on. I appreciate it won't be to everyones taste but I'm just plucking up the courage to try it on my morning Weetabix. I haven't included the nutritional and fat contents as I don't think I want to know. If you are worried about such things I don't think it would be the mayo for you.
I fancied a change from my normal Hellmans mayonnaise the other day so I went to the shop and saw this mayo on offer for about £1 so I thought Id give it a try. I only picked it up because usually I love garlic on absolutely everything and I thought the mixture of the mayo and garlic would taste really nice and a nice twist on the normal mayo. So I cooked myself up some chips for lunch a few days ago and decided to give this new mayonnaise a taste with them. Now I dont think I really looked who the maker of this mayo was because usually I dont like the Heinz brand mayonnaise I think the promise of garlic flavour won me over before I really thought about my purchase but I decide to try it anyway. Nutritional Information: I cannot actually find the exact information in regards to nutrition on the Internet and as I no longer have the jar I cant tell you exactly. But I guess the fat and calorie content is more or less the same as normal mayo which is very high in both calories and fat. This if you like it is obviously best had in moderation and not an everyday treat. The Taste: I didnt like it. Now I usually love garlic and the stronger the better even if it does make my breath stink lol. But this was over the top even for me. It overpowered the taste of my chips soo much so I felt like I was just eating pure mayo. The garlic taste is WAY to strong and tastes really raw and generally disgusting. The garlic tastes really acidic and sour which is really horrible because I have never known garlic to taste like that before. I could really taste raw egg when I was trying to eat this and yes I no one of the main ingredients in any may is egg but that was the most overpowering flavour in this one. It stunk like rotten eggs and tasted like them as well so I found I couldnt eat my chips after I had tried about 2 with this sauce on. The consistency of this is pretty vile as well. Instead of being creamy like most mayo's this is really greasy and actually leaves big greasy marks all over your plate when you have finished your dinner! Overall Opinion: I do not recommend that people buy this even if you like the taste of garlic because in my opinion this tastes nothing like it. I think I should have considered buying it more before I actually bought it because of the less than perfect experience's I have had with the normal Heinz mayo in the past. I passed this mayo onto my mom afterwards hoping that someone else would like it and it wouldnt be a total waste of money but both my mom and my brother thought it tasted vile so the jar was promptly thrown in the bin. If you like greasy, eggy, disgusting mayo then you will love this but Im guessing most people wont so I recommend staying away. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Thanks For Reading x-0 Salz 0-x
I first tried this a week ago and didn't like it but alst night i gave it another chance cos the stupid cow in the chippy forgot to put the mayo on my chips AGAIN and i needed something to wet my dinner a bit. I still don't like it and I'll tell you why. The garlic is too strong and it makes the mayo too harsh tasting. I couldn't even taste my vinegared chips through it so ended up scrapping it off my plate. I was shocked that the jar says its roasted garlic cos it tastes raw to me and has a horrible sour taste that spoils the mayo. The mayo don't taste creamy like it should cos of the strong garlic taste. I also think the mayo tastes very eggy and that isn't very nice at all. Just the strong smell of it made me feel sick. This mayo is v. greasy as well and not creamy like mayo should be. I dropped a bit down my top cos I'm messy like that and it left a long greasy mark that I can't get out so thats another reason for me to hate it cos I loved that top. It cost somthing stupid like 2 quid a jar as well and had more fat in it then normal mayo. A horrible disgusting waste of money.
Seeing this look all fancy on the Supermarket shelf, I had to give this a go. Yes, it is more expensive than other versions of Mayo, but this sound much grander anyway. There is a few in the Heinz Deli Mayo range, but this is the only 1 i've tried so far. I like Garlic and if I make Bolognaise I have to have Onion and Garlic in the Sauce, so it is because of the Garlic that I chose this one. I think this normally retails for around £1.60 for a 500g jar, but this was on Rollback in Asda the other month for £1.20. I like the look of the Jar this in in. It is sort of shaped like a Pasta Sauce Jar. It is kinda thick and a bit wide and not all that tall. It has a black screw top lid. The glass is see through and you can see the off white Mayo through the Jar. The label on the Jar is a wrap around plastic label and the writing is in bold black on the front. Not really any pretty pictures on this, just a Bulb of Garlic in a pink-y colour. This is pretty thick, and a little dollop of this goes a long way. I sometimes spread Mayo onto bread instead of Butter or Marg just to give a Ham Sandwich a little twist. I also like to dip my Chips into Mayo, and this coats the Chips well enough too! When you open the JAr you get the nice Creamy Eggy scent of the Mayo mixed with a heady Garlic-y smell. Upon eating this you can certainly taste the Garlic, but it isn't pongy, and you won't totally stink afterwards. It is more of a subtle taste, which is great due to the heavy taste of Mayo. Don't have the jar to hand for the nutritional information, but the calories and fat content were much the same as other full fat Mayo. I will buy this again as it was a little twist to a favourite at not much more money!
I am a garlic lover, it goes into pretty much every dish I cook, especially Italian dishes - it would not be an italian dish without garlic anyway. I also love garlic dips and sauces - for example, the garlic dip from Dominos is delicious on pizza! I used to buy the Heinz garlic and chive table sauce, but when I spied this condiment I knew I had to try it. It is very good and it does exactly what it says on the tin - taste of garlic! It is basically a garlic flavoured mayonaisse. Thankfully the garlic smell is not really overpowering or too tangy to the taste, but you could not mistake the garlic taste. It is also not a very bitter garlic taste, which again is a plus point. I think that it is a lot nicer than the Heinz galric and chives table sauce It goes well on a lot of things; chips, baked potatoes and with chicken. But for me the best thing it goes on is pizza. I like to mix it up with a bit of sweet chili dip and the taste is great. I am looking forward to barbeque season as I am sure it will taste great on barbequed chicken! It comes in a 280 gram jar and costs about £1.50. I think there is about 50 g of fat per 100g, so maybe not the healthiest thing you will ever have, but it is tasty!
I actually went to buy some of this from my local supermarket at Christmas and I actually got quite excited as I really love garlic mayonnaise. So one friday evening I decided to do some fried mushrooms in breadcrumbs to have with my Heinz garlic mayonnaise. Before having my mushrooms I tried just a little bit and wasn't quite sure about it, so decided to make a little of my own garlic mayonnaise (Morrisons own mayo with a cuple of cloves of crushed garlic) so that I could compare the two. I have to say that my own garlic mayonnaise was much much nicer than this Heinz stuff, as it tasted so much fresher. Despite smelling quite nice, the Heinz stuff tasted very artificial. I don't remember exactly how much this mayonnaise was, but I do know it wasn't exactly cheap!! I think it was around £2 though. My supermarket's own brand mayonnaise (I use morrisons) only costs about 90p for a jar twice the size of this one, and I buy a pack of garlic bulbs for about 69p so this works out cheaper than the heinz stuff, you get more than twice as much and its ten times nicer. And it takes about 30 seconds longer to prepare! The only positive thing that I can say about it is that it lasts longer than it claims. It says once opened refridgerate and eat within 4 weeks yet I have had it opened for about 3 months now and it still tastes exactly the same as it did back then!! I really wouldn't recommend this to anyone when you can make your own and it would cost less and is much nicer!! So don't bother trying it!
This was one of Tesco's rather bizarre online substitutions but rather than send it back I decided to keep this Roasted Garlic Heinz Deli Mayo as I was intrigued as to why Tesco would deem this a sensible substitution for the Hellman's Light Squeezy Mayo I'd originally ordered! It's very tasty, it's basically a mayonnaise flavour but this has been infused with a delicious blend of garlic. It's not harsh in any way although I can certainly taste the garlic in it, and my daughter commented that she could smell I'd been eating it too so I'd advise you to not eat this before an important meeting! It has a fairly sweet flavour which goes beautifully with the overall mayonnaise, it's rich and creamy with such a tasty tang to it that I found it extremely moreish. I've since tried it on everything; in jacket potato, with chips, spread on a chicken breast, mixed in with some prawns, dolloped on salad, honestly it complimented everything I tried it on extremely well. I gave my granddaughters' some to try and they loved it too, in fact the ten year old enjoyed it so much that she asked her mum to buy a jar that same day! My favourite way to use this mayo is as a dip, I'm currently dieting so the high fat content has to be counteracted by dipping in raw carrots and broccoli florets. It doesn't taste greasy at all but mayonnaise in general is notoriously bad for dieters (unless you use Hellman's Light, like me) so the oil is obviously hidden underneath the creaminess of this one. Unfortunately I can't help you with the nutritional information as I threw my jar out yesterday but I remember the details were clearly labelled on the back of the jar, just have a look in the supermarket before tossing a jar into your trolley. Having had a look on the Tesco website this costs £1.45 which is reasonable for such a tasty treat, although I still fail to see the correlation between this and Hellman's Mayo!
When I saw this on the shelves of Tesco, I was looking for ordinary light mayo but somehow it managed to join my intended purchase in the trolley - no way to explain it other than the fact that I have very little willpower! In the main, it seemed to me like the kind of yummy meal accompaniment that you get in restaurants (I'm thinking of the kind of thing you dip your breaded mushrooms etc into) and that you never quite can replicate at home without a great deal of messing about with egg yolks. Not having any breaded mushrooms on hand that evening, I decided to try it out with some curly fries and it tasted absolutely gorgeous that I didn't want to stop eating it. However, I did eventually reign myself in by thinking of the fact that it certainly isn't a healthy treat (but let's face it, I wasn't doing well but eating it with curly fries). I've tried it with cold meats, a dob on a jacket potato, in sandwiches with beef and as a dip with crisps at a family party and there certainly wasn't any left in the pot that night. The taste is creamy and flavoursome - I wouldn't say it's overpowering at all but you might not want to breath too heavily over non-consumers afterwards as it does leave a bit of a garlic tang. It is free from artificial colours, flavours and additives but I would have been happier if it was made with free range eggs (it doesn't say it is so I guess that it isn't). Once you've opened it, you need to keep it in the fridge and consume within four weeks (not too much of a problem there) It cost £1.39 for 290g (a medium size jar's worth) which is good value I think as it is really only a special occasion item it certainly can put a bit of zing into a standard, can't really be bothered to be creative type of meal.
