VEGAN MAYONNAISE: I basically required this to live. I’ve been really impressed with Vegenaise so far, but thought I would try a different brand of vegan mayonnaise to see how it stacked up. Going head to head in this Vegan Battle is Earth Island Reduced Fat Vegenaise and Spectrum Vegan Eggless Canola Mayonnaise Type Spread.
On the left we have the Spectrum, on the right the Vegenaise. Right away I liked the consistency of the Vegenaise much better than the Spectrum as it was closer to the texture of “real” mayo. Spectrum’s mayo was gloopier than the Vegenaise – is “gloopier” a word? Runnier is maybe more accurate. Both smelled fairly similar.
The mayo though was a pretty easy decision. The Vegenaise tasted very, very close to “real” mayo, while the Spectrum was more like the tangy sandwich spread Miracle Whip, which I’ve never liked. It might be nice in another context – a sandwich maybe – but not on chick’n burgers.
