The only miracle about Miracle Whip is that anyone buys the stuff. Every couple of years the price of vegetable oil goes up, and Kraft reformulates Miracle Whip to reduce the amount of oil they put in it, so as to keep the price down.
Now they sell a version which doesn't have any oil at all.
Miracle Whip is to mayonnaise what Velveeta is to cheese. Velveeta isn't cheese, and Kraft isn't permitted to call it cheese. It's "pasteurized process cheese food".
And they're not permitted to call Miracle Whip "mayonnaise", because it doesn't satisfy the legal definition of mayonnaise per the FDA. Miracle Whip is "sandwich spread".
...and that's today's rant.
Granted, *outside* those specific cases, its a travesty. Cheese fries are not cheese fries when they use cheese sauce.

However for the single specific application that came up, I stand by my choice of materials.

I HATE the color stuff the designers added in to make it more "friendly", IMO that just distracts from doing the job right.

meta: don't forget queso. I wouldn't even try to make it with real cheese; even if it didn't burn on the stove, it'd get grainy in the fridge.

I'd consider it except that with the severe disparity between my upload and download speeds, and my noble desire for a share ratio of 2.0... I'm still seeding at least a dozen items from last anime season.
(Still haven't had time to even watch it all).
Oddly, the recipe on Food Network talks about hand-whisking the Mayo, but IIRC, he actually made it in a food processor.
