The miracle of Miracle Whip[edit]

The miracle, apparently, is that this product contains none of the ingredients one would use in making mayonnaise. Every time I glimpse its label I am reminded of the Instruments of the Passion, but I suppose that would be considered "original research". --Wetman 20:57, 8 September 2005 (UTC)

I've heard that the ingredients are different, but the other day I looked at the labels on Miracle Whip and Best Foods mayonnaise and found them to be quite similar, consisting mainly of vegetable oil, eggs, vinegar, sugar, and flavorings. I happen to have Kroger versions of both on hand. Check it out:
Kroger "Whipped Salad Dressing" (Miracle Whip knockoff) - soybean oil, water, sugar, vinegar, egg yolks, natural flavor, calcium disodium EDTA, paprika, salt, food starch-modified, mustard flour. Fat: 7g (1g saturated).
Kroger "Real Mayonnaise" (Hellmans/Best Foods knockoff) - soybean oil, water, sugar, vinegar, egg yolk, natural flavor, calcium disodium EDTA, paprika, salt, eggs, lemon juice concentrate. Fat: 11g (1.5g saturated).
The most significant difference seems to be that 'salad dressing' replaces the whites of the eggs with food starch and additional sugar. It also has mustard and a little more salt instead of lemon juice. — mjb 08:41, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

The main difference between mayonnaise and Miracle Whip is that mayonnaise is delicious, while Miracle Whip is a sugary, sour, and disgusting bastardization of mayonnaise. . Just my opinion, obviously some people like the stuff. I hate it.

I agree that mayonnaise is good and Miracle Whip is evil. Furthermore, I propose that wikipedia:userbox templates be created to allow users to state their mayonnaise/Miracle Whip preference on their talk page. A whip cream/Cool Whip user box is also apropos. --Trweiss 18:49, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
It's not important whether anyone loves it or hates it. What IS important is that the recipe changes without notice, as it has recently done. Kraft doesn't think it's important to notify their customers when they change the recipe, and that is now and should always be noted within the text of the article. 98.194.39.86 (talk) 08:00, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Miracle Whip.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Miracle Whip.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

A Different Image[edit]

Can we please get a different main image? It isn't even of Miracle Whip, but instead of "Calorie Wise Miracle Whip". 75.129.170.228 (talk) 10:33, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

That is a particular variety of Kraft Miracle Whip available in Canada, similar to Miracle whip light in the United States. It is a suitable picture, although not as appetizing as a full jar in studio lights. Group29 (talk) 22:37, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Steven Colbert/ Miracle Whip "Mini" fued[edit]

should it be mentioned that he brought up miracle whip in his show criticizing their "anti-mayo" advertisements,and they responded by an open letter saying they bought ad time throughout november 12ths show?

Sold world wide, not North America and Germany[edit]

Perhaps the article was written in the 90s? It should probably be updated from: "Sold in United States, Canada, and Germany". to sold globally.

e.g. The locally sold Miracle Whip here in China: Chinese Miracle Whip — Preceding unsigned comment added by 183.3.54.199 (talk) 04:14, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Merge Proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to merge. Geoff | Who, me? 22:13, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

I propose that Salad dressing spread be merged into Miracle Whip. Miracle Whip is the original version, as noted in the Salad dressing spread article. The Miracle Whip article is of a reasonable size that the merging of Salad dressing spread will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned.

Ingredients changes 04/17[edit]

5/13/17 -- The current ingredients are WRONG. The ingredients were changed recently by Kraft, and I made the correction to this article listing the new ingredietns. Apparently someone didn't like those facts being reflected in the article. Nonetheless, the current ingredients listed in the article now are INCORRECT, and I will edit them soon to reflect reality, with references this time. The current product image is wrong and needs updating as well. 98.194.39.86 (talk) 08:38, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
