    Seems people taste differing flavors in the label alone. Hellmann's speaks to the part of my genetic palate that is German, I suppose.

    Well, I'm part German.
    My mother grew up in a German speaking household.

    Maybe it's the name 'Hellmann's' vs the generic 'Best Foods' that speaks to your palate?

    My maternal grandparents would argue around the kitchen in German. She would sometimes throw plates. He would clean up the debris. It all worked out great for them.

    Different recipes, they are different. Best Foods is western US, Hellman's is eastern.
    They were two companies that were first brought together I think when Best Foods bought out Hellman's...but kept the name...and now they are both owned by Brits.

    I don't cook breastuses anymore before splitting (or tri-splitting them) and pounding them.

    I just can't handle how spongy the breast meat is anymore. I don't know why it's like that but it freaks me out unless it's sliced super thin.

    I can feed a family of 7 using 4 breasts, and have leftovers.
