Favorite condiments

I felt the need to start a favorite condiments thread and maybe we could graph the results (using ggplot2 of course) showing our favorite condiments.

We have to make this somewhat statistical so let's form it as an R list with various categories with vectors of likes in rank order. There now we've dork-a-fied this post.

Here's a guide/template (add categories as your cultural needs dictate):

Code:
 <- list(
    jams_jellies = c(),
    mustards = c(),
    hotsauces = c(),
    mayos = c(),
    ketchups = c(),
    relishes = c(),
    steaksauces = c(),
    barbques  = c(),
    saladdressings = c(),
    dips = c(),
    other = c()
)

I'll start:

Code:
trinker <- list(
    jams_jellies = c("smuckers raspberry", "pepper jelly"),
    mustards = c("webbers"),
    hotsauces = c("franks", "cholula chipolte"),
    mayos = c(),
    ketchups = c("heinze"),
    relishes = c(),
    steaksauces = c(),
    barbques  = c("sweet baby rays"),
    saladdressings = c(),
    dips = c("guacamole", "salsa", "red pepper hummus"),
    other = c("horse raddish")
)
EDIT: added dips after bugman's post :)

****!!! I just remembered I wanted to buy some spicy mustard. I only shop once a week, so now I gotta wait another week to try a new salad dressing -.-

A coworker used a balsamic vinaigrette with olive oil and mustard. Said just pour it in a bottle and shake. The mustard seems to keep it bound quite well. I hate making dressing sometimes because it's more effort than I care for to emulsify it. Anyway, you brought up food!

Code:
bryan <- list(
    jams_jellies = c(),  # Don't use them anymore. Usually HFCS anyway. I prefer Agave or Honey
    mustards = c("Dijon", "Deli (spicy)" ),
    hotsauces = c("Ass Kickin", "Sriracha", "Tabasco Chipotle"), 
    mayos = c("Best Foods"),  # I don't use it much anymore, but when I do it's often Best Foods Real Mayonnaise 
    ketchups = c(), # Don't use it anymore. Empty calories and usually HFCS
    relishes = c(),  # Never been a fan. Rather just have pickles. 
    steaksauces = c("A1"),  # Generally I prefer a steak cooked that doesn't need sauce!
    barbques  = c(),  # Don't BBQ enough to have favorites. If I use it, I really don't care. Should learn to make my own, though
    saladdressings = c("chipotle ranch", "balsamic vinaigrette", "Thai Peanut"),
    dips = c("red pepper hummus", "Salsa", "guacamole"), 
    other = c("Blue Agava", "Honey")
)

Mmm red pepper hums adding that to my list. @BG ever try Webbers? it's mustard with horse radish in it. Spicy and delicious. It may be a local Buffalo thing though. I agree on the steak sauce. You use it to cover a bad steak IMO.

Nope, but that's a good idea. I wonder if it would also go well in the salad dressing hmmmm. Nevertheless, it'll go good on any sandwich. I just don't each sandwiches or burgers and stuff that much. I'm going to start eating PB&H(oney) at work, though. It's a good source of protein and good fats. I want to have my good (unsaturated) fats outnumber my saturated fat content. My logs the past few days show this not to be happening!
