I’ve mentioned on multiple occasions how much I love Hellmann’s mayonnaise (or Best Foods as they’re called in our part of the country). I love the quality of their product, made simply and perfectly with real ingredients such as eggs, oil and vinegar. But now they’re giving me another reason to call them my favorite brand of mayonnaise. Hellmann’s is on a mission to use 100% cage free eggs in all its products. They’ve begun to add cage free eggs to Real Mayonnaise and will remain committed to increasing use as supply becomes available. In fact, they’ve made a commitment to use 100% cage free eggs in all their products by 2020!
You can check out the video below to see their presence at the 2012 Food and Wine Classic in Aspen. I have to say I’m very intrigued by the ice cream made with Hellmann’s mayonnaise. Sounds gross but everyone seemed really impressed!
Now of course I’m excited to share about their commitment to cage free eggs, but I’m also excited to tell you that you can enter for a chance to attend next year’s Food and Wine Classic! Visit the Hellmann’s Facebook page for a chance to win all sorts of prizes. I’ve of course already entered since I’d give up my favorite frying pan in a heartbeat for a chance to be a part of the Food and Wine Classic.
We’ve talked a lot about where food comes from. One of the main reasons I want to raise chickens is to know exactly where the eggs our family eats come from. Have you thought much about cage free eggs? Do you raise your own chickens for eggs, buy them locally, or pay attention in the grocery store? Is it even something that matters to you? I’d love to know!
