7-Eleven Stores Switch Exclusively to Vegan Mayonnaise

Sandwiches made at the world's largest convenience store will now only use Just Mayo.

Choosing plant-based options is becoming faster and more convenient now that sandwiches with egg-free mayonnaise are available at 7-Eleven stores. According to Hampton Creek CEO and Founder Josh Tetrick on Twitter, “All of @7-Eleven switched to using Just Mayo” in their sandwiches. “It’s the only mayo that they will have, and one that is infinitely better for the planet,” Tetrick said in a later interview with Ecorazzi. With approximately 8,000 stores in the US alone, 7-Eleven is the largest convenience store in the world, so the effects of this small change will be amplified many times over. Hampton Creek estimates the company’s switch from traditional mayonnaise to Just Mayo will save 81 million gallons of water as well as 1.5 billion milligrams of sodium from human ingestion annually. The vegan food company—which also makes the Just Cookies cookie dough—is finding success with many other mainstream brands as well. Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake Mix began incorporating their Just Mix powdered egg-replacement in its recipe earlier this year, and Walmart Mexico will soon carry Hampton Creek's line of products.
