What's Kewpie Mayonnaise?

Kewpie
A 1pound jar of Kewpie Mayonnaise.

Kewpie is the Japanese version of Mayonnaise. The Kewpie mayo is yellow, unlike white western mayo. It is sweeter than western mayo, thinner, and contains apple vinegar and egg yolks.

In sushi, Kewpie mayo is used mainly as an ingredient in the famous "spicy mayo" sauce, or by itself on top of crunchy fried rolls.

Quoting Amy:
I wonder if our grocery store has any of this. I usually use mayo in my egg salad sandwiches so I wonder how this kewpie compares in both calories and taste.


Exact same calorie content I believe. I use it exclusively instead of American mayo. Flavor however is superb. It's impossible to go back to american brands after trying this.
