Trader Joe’s Vegan Mayo Spread & Dressing Reviews
Ingrdients: avocado oil, water, chickpea broth (water, chickpeas), white vinegar, sea salt, natural flavors, mustard flour, lemon juice concentrate, gum arabic, xanthan gum, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, oleoresin, and black pepper.
If you’re vegetarian don’t waste your time with this Mayo. Just go for the real thing. This mayo has too strong of a vinegar flavor. Nothing else comes through. The calories are also about the same per serving between this and regular mayo so I would never buy this again. Just make your own regular or vegan mayo at home.
More sour than real mayonnaise and the texture is more… chunky (it is not smooth). I’ve only had my jar for about a month and it is now separating — liquid is pooling around curds of mayo. I do not recommend.

I use this to mix in with other things. For example, I use it to make chickpea salad. That’s already a sour dish, so the fact that this is sour doesn’t make much difference to me. Definitely does not compare to Vegenaise, but neither does any other vegan mayo. I would rate this a solid “not bad” and I’m grateful that Trader Joes finally has SOME vegan mayo option.
It’s chunky, and had a weird plastic flavor and aftertaste. Do not recommend!!!
I literally buy this mayo all the time from TJ’s. It’s the best one I’ve found. I don’t find it to be too sour or vinegar tasting. I LOVE using it for my chickpea sandwich spread, I make salad dressings with it, and use it for tuna salad (for the few times I eat meat). I did have one incident when it separated in the jar and I couldn’t get it to combine again and become smooth. That happened once (out of the 10 jars I’ve bought over the last year). I just took it back and they let me swap it out for another jar – no questions, no charge. I buy this product because most other brands have an off taste to me.

The flavor is decent (I like things sour and vinegary) — similar, in my opinion, to Follow Your Heart’s Vegenaise or Hellmann’s Vegan Mayonnaise. The appearance, though, is… not good. It has a slightly grayish color and after about a week in my fridge, it’s curdling with oil coming to the surface and chunky bits forming below. It still tastes fine, though, if you can ignore the appearance.

Its taste horrible..
Everyone saying this has a vinegar flavor.. But I don’t think it does. It tastes like someone mixed Mayo with a little mustard so it’s great in sandwiches and such!
This stuff is disgusting! I’m sticking with Vegenaise.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo GROSS!the smell is like pure super glue .Dont buy this!!!!
Tell store manger all reviews are bad.I had to pick arating but there isnt on for zero.so I picked one star

This stuff is vile. There’s way too much vinegar. You can even smell it when you open the jar. Please, please, please bring back the original Trader Joe’s Vegan Mayo Spread and Dressing. You should never have messed with a good thing!
I’m aurprised by the negative reviews. This is the best vegan mayo option since Just Mayo in my opinion. Great in spinach dip, as a caesar salad dressing base and it has that eggy flavor that leans more APV than plasticy fake mayo of competitors. This is still better and less ofensive to me than the smell of Veganaise and Best Foods vegan mayo (which ironically should be better since I think they shut down/bought “just mayo”). Outside of this it’s probably best to just make your own vegan mayo.

I want to like it but I just can’t get there. The main flavor that comes through is vinegar, but it’s just overall not a tasty mayo. I much prefer Vegenaise, which I stll think is the absolute best in the business.
I’m wondering if there is a fix for this mayo….maybe adding a little simply syrup or something to offset the vinegar taste.
