A couple of months ago I ran out of Best Foods mayonnaise, so I went to the store to get some. They didn’t have Best Foods, but they had Hellman’s. I know that Hellman’s is the brand name in the East, and Best Foods is the brand name in the West; and the product itself is the same. Last time I was at that store, I saw that they had Best Foods back. I reckoned there was either a mix-up with the distributor, or else the distributor couldn’t get Best Foods but was able to get Hellman’s.
But recently I’ve seen a couple of Hellman’s commercials. Could be that the cable company got its commercials mixed up. But it got me wondering whether there might be a name change for those of us on the Left Coast.
