    Still more news about the Titanic. As all you gourmets already
    know, Hellman's and Best Mayonnaise are now the same. Kinda
    like Clark Kent and Superman.

    But in the early days they were separate. Not only that, Hellman's
    was originally an English Corporation (LTD) that started out importing
    spices in the 18th century and gradually moved into the business of
    manufacturing some of its products such as Coleman's Mustard.

    Late in the 19th century it began producing mayonnaise. 1200 cases
    were aboard the Titanic. The ship was scheduled to sail to New York,
    then south to Vera Cruz. The first shipment ever to Mexico.

    When the ship sank in the N. Atlantic, the people of Mexico who
    had been eagerly awaiting this new delicacy were distraught. A
    national day of mourning was declared.

    Sinko di Mayo.

    Heard this little joke before? I post it ever year at this time.
    Except one year I forgot and was a few days late.

    Bon appetit!
