Do any restaurants have light mayo packets?

I started eating at a new sub shop and they don't have light (low fat) mayo. Do any restaurants (arbys, burger king KFC ect) have light mayo packets? I will buy something then grab a handful of packets and use them on my subs.

Maybe you could ask the new sub place to start carrying light mayo. In the meantime you could spend the $3 on a jar of it at your local supermarket. An entire jar should last a few sandwiches. A bit more expensive than your master plan, but,..uh.....dude! Really? You're Jonesing for light mayo packs? Get a job and a life.

I'm assuming you don't have a job unless its in your moms basement becasue most people don't bring their lunch home with them, unless you prefer me to bring a large mayo jar with me to work. Get a clue idiot.

You're talking about pilfering mayo packets from fast food joints and I'm the loser?

I'll think about this post when I'm cashing my pension check and checking on the tenants in my 4 investment properties!

Enjoy your mayo, Mr. Gates!

LOL!

In my experience, it is an individual franchise thing. There is no way to be sure that the Sonic in my town, which gives out light mayonnaise packets, will give them out in your town. You'll have to shop around or ask. And while a jar might be impractical, you may be able to find a box of packets to use instead.

I also see absolutely no claim in the OP that he will be pilfering mayo packets. He's going to be buying something from the second store to get those packets, and he'll be doing it on a daily basis. He's actually spending much more than the mayo packets are worth.

If you can't find any light mayonnaise packets in any restaurants or in any supermarkets, you can order them online. I found a couple of sources by searching on "light mayonnaise" and "packets". They'll cost less than twenty cents each if you order a large quantity. This will cost you less time and money than if you go around to a lot of restaurants looking for light mayonnaise.

WTF is so hard about bringing a small Squeez bottle of mayo to work? The store brands are $1.79, name brands $3.48.

I would assume about as hard as understanding that the OP doesn't want to bring a bottle of mayo to work.

I was (begrudgingly) at Chik Fil A the other day and they have light mayo packets. I noticed because I couldn't find the regular mayo packets - turns out they were in the packets labeled "Chik Fil A Mayo" not "Hellmann's".

Subway (at least by me) have light mayo packets, too. In fact, I'm not entirely sure if they have regular mayo packets at all. When my boss orders a party tray of subs, we get handed a bag of light mayo packets and mustard packets with the tray. I don't think we specify.

This store has three different brands of light mayo packets.

Small tip: Regular Kraft Miracle Whip brand spread has less fat than even some (but not all) brands of light mayo.

I have not ever been given a mayo packet I was unable to lift, so yes, many stores. However, none of the packets have ever moved at approximately 186,000 miles per second, so no, no stores.

Why not? Those local places had the packets shipped from somewhere.

Look for a restaurant supply store that's open to the public. Here's a local one in my area.

Every time I ask for mayo at McDonalds, they hand me packets that say "Light Mayo". Bunch of communists, they are.

Any high-end French restaurant should be happy to supply light mayo packets on request.
