    You got there before me - but yes, Amazon for the travelling mayonnaise.

    My travelling eggs are very comfy in a little two-egg hinged plastic holder - and if I'm only needing to transport one, I put it in one of the compartments and the other one is used to house a mayonnaise sachet and a rolled up piece of kitchen roll.

    This is it - the pic looks like it holds four, but it's photographed in the open position, with the hinge in the middle. It holds two eggs (or one egg/sachet/kit roll combo).

    I have already discovered the local Tesco to where I do freelance shifts has little pots of nuts... and now I have seen this egg gadget, I am sold. Me want! Are these just for snacks?

    When ever I have a coffee when we are out I always take the little sugar sachets in the saucer home for my daughter when she has a cup of tea at our house as we don't buy sugar anymore

    I was going to buy one of these from Amazon.UK, but it seemed a bit expensive, so I held off. Today I found an orange 6 egg one in Black's for £1, reduced from £1.50. I would have preferred the beautiful yellow minimalist 2 egg version, but for £1 ... It was in the Christmas gifts section. I suppose they thought it would be a good stocking filler. Though I'm not convinced many people would be chuffed to find this in their stocking. Hence the reduced price, perhaps.

    Just check the carb content of Heinz mayo. The one I had was surprisingly high. I stick to Hellmans.

    I discovered Hellman's from this Forum - the first of many helpful finds during my short time here. I love that it contains free range eggs and the lowest carb content that I could find when I searched the supermarkets. Some expensive foodie mayos were disappointingly carb culpable. However even with Hellman's you need to look at the label. Here the "Real" Hellman's in a glass jar has 1.3g carb per 100g, but in a plastic bottle 1.4g. OK, that's not a big difference, but it's the principle of the thing!

    Do you mean, what you make yourself? An egg contains 1.1g carbs. My Hellman's also contains lemon juice extract and paprika extract.

    Mine is egg fee dairy free gluten free and non gmo

    It’s called Just Mayo by joy. Tastes just like our Hellmanns but our Hellmanns is made with soy oil. This is expeller pressed non gmo canola
    I used to make my own but the only way it tasted good was to use refined light tasteless oil so what’s the point?

    Well there you are, we have stone-free avocados and you have Just Mayo. That's life.

    The label on the Hellmans in my fridge says one of the ingredients is sugar. 1.3g of carbs per 100g doesn't bother me as I only have a small amount anyway.

    Edited to add - so does Just Mayo according to Amazon.com
