Most people don’t know that back in 1912, Hellman’s Mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after it’s stop in New York. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico at the time. But as we know, the great ship never made it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great that they declared a National Day of Mourning which occurs each year on May 5, and of course is known as Sinko De Mayo. What?? You expected something educational from me??
Ryan would like to wish his wonderfully beautiful cousin Amanda, a very happy birthday! Yes, she is a Sinko de Mayo baby, and she loves her Mayo. Happy Birthday Amanda! We hope it is your best birthday ever!!
