    Yeah, I tried mayo on fries & it wasn't for me. It seems I don't like mayo on anything warm or hot, about the only time I don't mind mayo is coleslaw, potato salad & deviled eggs.

    I didn't realize coleslaw had mayo.. It always seemed to me that coleslaw has a dressing that is more runny and isn't as thick as mayo. I looked up a coleslaw dressing recipe, and indeed it mentions mayo.

    I've put together coleslaw at home sometimes, and often I've bought pre-made coleslaw dressing such as this:
    https://www.vons.com/shop/product-details.106040046.html
    Looking at the ingredients for that, it doesn't specifically say it has mayo, I imagine several of the ingredients are pretty much what's in mayo.

    Interesting.. These were missionaries from the US? From what I've
    heard, I always thought mayonnaise on french fries was more common in Europe. I personally haven't known anyone in the US who likes
    mayonnaise on their fries. In the US, ketchup is usually what people
    like on fries, and sometimes other sauces (Thousand Island dressing, sometimes barbecue sauce, or what some places call "fry sauce", which

    That comment struck me as odd, too, as mayo seems to be the standard fry condiment in Germany, and I'm in the ketchup camp.

    Well, I'm mostly in the, "no real need to get fries, but I'll eat some if they're around" camp.

    And I grew up with my dad, for whom fries were ketchup-delivery vehicles. He was also a fan of ketchup on eggs.

    But I'd use mayo if no ketchup was available. Though maybe just not eat the fries. Potatoes just aren't my thing.

    I agree there, just sometimes the bread is sopping wet with it. There's a nice happy medium that you only get once in awhile, but I guess I'd rather have too much, than not enough.

    I assume that's where fsx drew the policy from.

    Nope, but essentially there's been heated back and forth between some past posters when views are shared regarding political and/or religious subjects.

    I took the view that to negate discord and help foster the goals and values of fsxNet it was best to ask folks to take such posts to othernets... as some have mentioned already there's plenty of other spaces / places on the internet and BBS land that those conversations can take place in.

    The feedback since that change was made has been overwhelmingly supportive.

    I'll do salsa on eggs, which is probably closely related.

    Gravy is the way to go, apparantly! I not so long ago had poutine for the first time in my life. It had pork belly and a brown gravy that was amazing! Not sure I can eat fries and ketchup ever again.

    Same here in Wisconsin. But then again, there's not much you can do with fries/chips, besides finding anything incredible to put on them. :)

    Here cod is the norm, but they usually have some locally popular fish like blue gill, perch, or walleye as other options as well.

    Agreed, but I don't think I've ever seen Salmon advertised as any kind of fish fry around here. Probably a good thing, I guess.
