In Katharine Shilcutt's "Mayonnaise vs. Miracle Whip: Kraft's Clever Ad Campaign," she wrote that she's been listening to people debate the two condiments her entire life.

Commenter Wilf took it further:
"Miracle Whip tastes like the way Beaumont smells."

Cool Miracle Whip in the fridge? Come on, admit it...
