Nasoya was kind enough to send me two jars of their new and reformulated versions of Nayonaise: the "now creamier" original nayonaise, and their new nayowhipped spread. Our family was regular purchasers of the old nayonaise several years ago before we discovered a competitor's brand. GR, however, always preferred nayonaise. What made me make the switch to the other brand was that I liked their thickness, texture and flavor; I always thought nayonaise was a bit on the thin side, but it was a good product to have on hand when we wanted a vegan mayonnaise. So, when I was contacted about an opportunity to review a new formula, I was very excited to give them another chance.
The jars arrived well-protected in a small box along with two lid grabbers to make jar opening easier. I love these grabbers and use them all the time! It took a couple of weeks to fully review these products because I wanted to try them in different capacities. So, for the nayonaise, I made a batch of my Kids Love It! Potato Salad for the Fourth of July, and for the nayowhipped, I made my Macaroni Salad . We also had sandwiches with them, as well as just tasting them right out of the jar. Keep reading for more information.
On an interesting note, I compared the ingredients of the two jars to each other to try and figure out what made the whipped have a different flavor. What I found was that they had the exact same ingredients listed, just in a different order. The only things that were a bit ambiguous were "spices" and "natural flavors." So, I can't tell you why one is tangier than the other.
Again, to be completely honest, which is what I like to do, I won't go out of my way to buy these products on a regular basis. But, GR was so happy to have them again, that I'll probably buy her a jar to have for her sandwiches. And, when I make the macaroni salad, I'll use the nayowhipped.
