I've found a few online sources but the pricing was crazy high unless you wanted case lot amounts.

A few options

The smallest jar you can find

If you have a Hungarian or similar deli you might find Mayo in a squeeze tube, better than a glass jar and it keeps pretty good because the air exposure is limited.

Upscale take out places...steal some packets when they are not looking

Cafeterias can also be a source but in Canada it's getting more and more rare that they leave the packets accessible.

I just did some surfing and found this site which I don't think I've been to before.

Pricing seems reasonable but I didn't look for the fine print about minimum orders and/or shipping costs.

Not sure where you are from BootScoot, but if you are near Mississauga go to Starsky's for tubes of the European Mayo. It is a bit heavier (more oily) than the NA variety, but keeps well as Recep mentions. In the KW area there are some Italian stores (Vincenzo's) that carry it. Most of it is imported by Omega Foods in Mississauga so if you live in Ontario you could call them to get a list of other vendors.

That's a lot of Mayo at 10 or 15 cents a packet!

Yeah but they will use USPS for P.O. Boxes and some International so at least it's not "our way or no way".

they also have peanut butter and Nutella and other little goodies like hummus. Plus those ridiculously expensive Stonewall Kitchen preserves

No one needs $20 of mayo :rofl:

Here's what we do:
-Buy 100 sandwich bags from the dollar store
-put packet amount of mayo in it
-twist tie the end

On site, just bite off the corner.

I agree to "steal" them. When my kids were little we had picnics and camped all the time. I created a stash of tiny packet condiments. I would buy something at a restaraunt for good faith, and then ask if I could have packets of various things. They will give you handfuls usually. Especially teenagers-ask the young staff. :)

Another option: We've found because mayo is pasteurized, as long as you are careful not to contaminate the end of the bottle you can use it on a trip for quite some time.
You can buy it in a plastic squeeze tube type container.

Yep.. my MIL never refrigerated mayo but had a rule that you never dipped a used on anything utensil in it.

That was before squeeze bottles. No need to dip anything in them.

I don't usually carry mayo but when I do and do not take a cooler its been fine for two weeks.

I always assumed the air was what contaminated the mayo and made it go bad. I've always been afraid to eat potato salad at picnics because of the mayo in it. Would the packets keep longer because they are only opened once and then used?

We have found McChicken sauce from McDonalds to be a good substitute. Works great with foiled pouch chicken or tuna to make a salad for a wrap.

Mayo may have egg yolk in it but the egg is held in suspension by the oil, if you leave it alone unrefrigerated it won't go bad by itself. That's why "Euro" mayo can come in tubes and be left out, not a special recipe but it's hard to contaminate stuff in a squeeze tube.

As long as you use a CLEAN knife you can bring all the mayo you want tripping and it will last longer than you can use it. Make up a batch and leave it on the shelf for a week if you don't believe me, it's easy to make your own mayo with an egg yolk, cup of veg oil and a food processor.
