Hellmann’s vs. Best Foods
In many places in the US, Hellmann’s is synonymous with mayonnaise. You can’t have a tuna or egg salad sandwich without a healthy glob of Hellmann’s delicious, delicious mayo. But in other countries, and even in certain parts in the US, Hellmann’s isn’t known as Hellmann’s.
It goes by the name Best Foods. This is the result of Hellmann’s head-to-head competition with Postum Foods’ Best Foods Mayonnaise. The two brands merged and manufactured Hellmann’s mayonnaise under the name Best Foods. In most parts of the world, you’ll only find the Best Foods label plastered onto every jar or packaging of mayonnaise.
