Say yeah to all, both where the options are presented – EXCEPT: Mayo – Yes, but lightly, and only if it is REALLY mayo and not the tacky Miracle Whip salad dressing!!! Does anyone else have this gripe, that they probably sound like a fussbudget, always sking the counter/waitperson if it is truly mayo?

Brownies – No nuts, which get in the way of the chocolate flav plus have a peculiar texture in this context.
