Hellmanns Mayonaise

"Two l's two n's"

Current: Hellmann's Mayonnaise

MMDE: Helman's Mayonnaise

Founded in 1905 when Richard Hellmann emigrated from Vetschau, Germany to New York City and opened a delicatessen where he sold his home made mayonnaise, most households recognise this famous brand. It's for this reason the owners rarely change it once established -especially a change in spelling to the main name.

However, there is a Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect concerning this - how exactly was the famous mayonnaise brand spelled?

Some remember it differently to the way it's spelt today, but in different ways. Today we see "Hellmann's", but some remember various permutations such as "Helmann's", "Hellman's" or "Helman's".
