I grew up in a house that had MW only, however I use Mayo much more now.

I like Hellman's. That's what Nana uses in her potato salad, but MW is my #1. I love the tangy zip it adds. Recently my dad's been buying light store brand mayo cause its cheaper. I was like, I will give you the $3 dollars for some damn MW.

I'd advise googling homemade MW recipes... but then I did it myself and was rather disgusted by the photo that came with the first recipe.
Thanks everyone for the explanations/opinions. I googled around for sellers here, but I don't fancy paying the equivalent of $16 US for two jars when i might not like it. I bought a Polish brand of Mayonnaise (hilariously called Majonez) and it was so sweet I couldn't bear it and threw it out. I do love UK salad cream, which we used long before mayonnaise was "in" here. It's got a real tang to it too. Sometimes I've mixed mayo and salad cream, but it tends to lose the mayo fluffiness, or else its all lumpy.

Oh well, I guess I'll live without miracle whip, but def going to try spirit's potato salad with mayonnaise!
