    The Finnish, and maybe various Scandinavians, also seem to have everything in tubes.
    http://adventurefoodie.blogspot.com/2016/12/swedish-food-in-tubes.html

    Here. Tomato puree, the very occasional meat spread (not seen one in years, though tend to skip that aisle, and would not bet on being able to find it in any of the big supermarkets) and toothpaste/various medicines is about all the comes in a squeezy tube like that, some yoghurt for school packups in soft plastic tubes as well.

    Tomato puree was used very often in the past (for Au Jus/Sauces).Myself is still using it.
    Today the "Instant" (Powder) Products has taken over....
    You still find it here on the Shelves - only in Tubes.

    Tooth Paste majority in Plastic Tubes...

    Had a "Shopping" today
    (Billa/Lidl/Penny/Spar) - Mayonnaise of course in Glasses / Plastic"cups" but Tubes are the Majoritiy.:)

    Tomato puree is still used here and noted in most modern recipe books, and I would similarly expect it to be in any fridge of someone that can cook or even those that use said spice mix powders to do tacos or something. Many will also blend it in with tomatoes from a can to make a sauce.
    I obviously don't use it (chillies, garlic, ginger and the like, as well as blended peppers, all of those coming in glass jars for me, usually ones too small to get a table spoon in but different rant for a different thread on that one. Doing an image search for tartex says chillies might be an option elsewhere).
    I do also remember way back now to the late 80s/early 90s and some cheese in a tube was a thing, though stopped fairly early on. Have seen that a few times in the US but the less said about American cheese in a thread we were otherwise having a good time in...

    Mayonnaise here is either glass jars, giant plastic tubs (catering size sort of thing), squeezy plastic bottles or I have seen the Japanese stuff others were referencing above in plastic bags.
    Apparently there is a mustard in a sort of tube
    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/Product/colmans-english-mustard-tube-50g
    mayonnaise might also exist
    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/Product/thomy-mayonnaise-tube-265g
    who knew, certainly not the standard.

    As far as lidl goes then normally that is like shopping on holiday but I don't think I have ever seen any tube foods that are not tomato puree in them.

    We also have them for Ketchup,Mustard,Mayonnaise and also in 10l Plastic Buckets.

    And also these little Portion "Bags":

    This is more for the "Big" Gastronomy (A long Time ago METRO was their only Supplier for them,in the Meantime there are many smaller Companies like KASTNER here in Burgenland) but in the Meantime Lidl/Hofer and Company sometimes sells these "Buckets" and Portionboxes too.

    Hellman's is too sweet, same as Miracle Whip.
    I wonder if they sell mayo or egg jam.

    I prefer even the Ja! or the Gut & Günstig mayo before that.

    PS: this is flame material perhaps, I wonder if mayo is flammable.

    Mayo is flammable, it's mostly oil anyway. Stick a wick in it and you get a candle. Look it up.

    I only eat mayo when I'm making chicken burgers and it's usually Hellmann's or Heinz.

    Japanese mayo (Kewpie) is delicious. American mayo is good too (Hellmanns is the only one you can find here)
    The local mayo in Norway is frankly pretty mediocre. But it's cheap.

    My advice would be to consider stopping using sauces during meals. Few people give it much thought, but avoiding the use of different sauces is good for your taste buds. You'll get a better taste of real food.

    So being adventurous and spendy (seriously it is rather expensive per unit volume) we picked up some Kewpie mayonnaise (Japanese variety) and decided to open it this evening.

    I don't get it. It was nice enough, certainly not salad cream but I will spare the salad cream evangelism this time, but not some kind of magical elixir compared to the average mayonnaise we get here.
