Kewpie Mayonnaise

Purchase Location : Lawson Store 100
Purchased Price : 105 Yen
Kcal : 100 (15g)
Maker : Kewpie

Kewpie Mayonnaise (Kyuupii in Japanese) is just as about as famous as a brand can get. I would be surprised to find any supermarket in Japan that didn’t carry this legendary mayo.

Mayonnaise in Japan has a unique taste. I have heard many Japanese people who have lived overseas say that Japanese mayonnaise is the best. Actually, I would have to agree. 

On Wikipedia’s mayonnaise entry page there is a good section about Japanese mayonnaise with several Japanese mayo facts I wasn’t aware of.

The bottle pictured above is rather small at 130g.

@ duep

You do realise, that the bottle is 130g. The one you bought at 5$ is around ~500g
