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 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… 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.
