So break out your favorite Duke’s Mayonnaise recipe card and enjoy the festivities with your pick for favorite “Mayo Moment” in film.; @dukesmayo

Duke’s legacy began 90 years ago in 1917 with Mrs. Eugenia Duke of Greenville, South Carolina who used to prepare and sell sandwiches to soldiers stationed at nearby Fort Sevier during WWI. Her sandwiches, and the homemade mayonnaise that gave them special flavor, became so popular that soldiers wrote to Eugenia requesting her recipe.
