Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann'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 very next port of call after the Titantics stop in New
York. This shipment of mayonnaise would have been the largest ever
delivered to Mexico but as we all know the great ship did not make it
to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank. The cargo was lost
forever. 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 Nation Day of Mourning,
which they still observe to this day. The National Day of Mourning
ocurs each year on May 5th and is know of course as --- Sinko de Mayo.
