Beautiful Joe I have had no trouble at all opening the jars.

I know I had to wait until my son came home! I tried everything. Then he just twists it off and tells me I need to do more arm exercises. [emoji23]

silva Your jar is always hard to open? I just found I now live by a cool target and got a 32 oz jar. It was impossible to open until I pryed the plastic like I would 'pop' the vacuum on a meta lid. It came right off and now goes on and off very easily. I normally wouldnt think to do that with a plastic lid. It had a flared bottom to it.
I think the 32 oz one was $5.00! I really want to go to Costco, I just don't want a membership

Rhys Looks good, Dana! Thanks! 64 ounce jar, yaaaaas!!! Woah, woah...I must make and try this vegan buffalo sauce sometime. Sorry for the late reply, I've been very busy. D: But I'm glad to be back on VB!

Just Mayo sent me some goodies since I sent them photos and info about the defective lids. One of the goodies was another jar of Just Mayo. I could open the lid on that one very easily. So I'm hoping to see more Just Mayo at my grocery store with the proper lids soon.

LeThieu92 Omg this happened to me. I was at it for 30 mins nearly I tears, I just wanted a sandwich with a little mayo on it!!!! I finally opened it but my hand wear red and sore for hours. Clearly I wanted the mayo hahaha I thought maybe I was super weak but clearly it wasn't me.

Is there a way I can quote the first part of this post and add it to the top of this thread for those who don't want to read the entire thread for an answer? If not, that's fine! Thanks.
Yay! I love the company.

At Costco, they have a 64 ounce jar of Just Mayo for about $5! I bought it, but gave it away when I moved. Next time I go to Costco, I'm getting another. I went through my last jar (32ounces) in less than 2 weeks. That might explain my tight fitting clothes I make Sriracha ranch sometimes. I used to be a HUGE Sriracha fan, but for the last year or so, I've been more addicted to buffalo sauce.

I'll edit your post. Let me know if I did it wrong.

No judgement here, dana. XD I went ahead and contacted Hampton Creek to let them know what's been going on and where I bought their product.

Thanks for your replies, everyone.
Ha, I was just looking at that thread yesterday! I've been wearing my EDM foundation again, I got lazy and bought Mac powder (it's pressed) for a while. I still have every piece of makeup I bought from them.

I purchased Vegenaise for years, but it was more like Miracle Whip. Just Mayo is like regular mayo, but 10 times better. I never really liked mayo before. Since I try to follow a mostly vegan diet now, I make homemade 1000 island, homemade ranch, and Mock Tuna all the time. Tastes better too!

Did you buy the Costco sized one?

danakscully64 Sounds like a few bad batches. I haven't had any issues and I've gone through 4 jars (don't judge me!!! ).

Welcome back to VB!!



07-13-2015 05:01 AM
no whey jose I've only seen the squeezy bottles with the flip-top plastic lid, but I imagine that's not what you're talking about. How discouraging to have a whole jar of delicious mayo that you can't enjoy!
07-13-2015 04:37 AM
Rhys Thanks, all. I'll shoot them a message! Sadly, my local grocery store only sells the 30 oz. jars. I really like Just Mayo so maybe they will get a new batch in sometime.
07-12-2015 09:25 PM
beanspud I've had no problems with the 30 oz jars. A wet rag may help
07-12-2015 06:18 PM
silva I haven't even seen 30 oz! Nor the smaller ones.\
Try a 16 oz next. I've saved all of them because I like the plastic lid- screw tight but opens easy, and I have a hard time with jar lids.
07-12-2015 05:30 PM
Capstan Probably so. You might shoot Just Mayo a message, in case they're not aware of it. It's a bummer when stuff goes wrong.
07-12-2015 05:24 PM
Rhys It's the 30 oz. jar. Each one I've tried seems to have had the lid glued on. It may be a bad batch I've encountered.
07-12-2015 05:24 PM
Capstan I've used only the small jars- use them for mixing salad dressing. They work good.

You probably bought into a batch that had a manufacturing glitch.
07-12-2015 05:10 PM
silva Maybe they got a bad batch out there. You reminded me tomorrows Monday so I filled my jar. Yup, it closes tight and opens easily.
07-12-2015 04:19 PM
silva I've gone through 3 Just Mayos and had no problem. I even use one to take my soy milk to work.
The 16 oz with a black plastic lid?
07-12-2015 03:34 PM
jessandreia Smacking the bottom of the jar with your hand sometimes helps.

Just Mayo jars ridiculously hard to open?

Anyone else having serious trouble opening up the large Just Mayo jars? I've bought a couple jars of Just Mayo this year and I've never been able to get them open, even when using tools to improve my grip. My brother also has had a horrendous time trying to open them for me. He told me it looked like the plastic lids were glued onto the jar. Any advice if you've experienced the same? I may go back to Vegenaise...


UPDATE: Alright, so I've received an e-mail back from Hampton Creek and they've confirmed there was a batch with lids that were on way too tight. They need a picture of the product number, expiration date, and bar code from me so that they can get closer to solving the issue. It's great that they got back to me so quickly!
