    Hellman's Mayo

    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
    manufactured in England.

    In fact, the Titanic was carrying 120,000 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 its stop in New York. This would have been the largest
    single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico or any single place
    in the known world. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to
    New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly
    awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so
    great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning. The National Day of
    Mourning occurs each year on May 5 and is known, of course, as - Sinko De Mayo.
