Hampton Creek Just Mayo and Just Cookie Dough - Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I like mayonnaise, and I like cookie dough.  So when I was given the opportunity to try versions of both that were different than I've consumed before, I was all for it. 
I do want to make it clear that I'm in the very middle of the fence when it comes to the politics of foods.  I don't feed my family strictly organic, and I don't feed them strictly processed foods.  I don't follow any particular food trend. Now back to the mayo and cookie dough...
Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo and Just Cookie Dough are healthier food solutions that are also budget friendly. Just Mayo is cholesterol-free, non- GMO, gluten-free, soy free, dairy-free, lactose-free, and kosher. Just Mayo is available in four flavors - original, sriracha, chipotle and garlic.  
I'd never tried any kind of mayo other than the nationally known brands.  I was impressively surprised by how much Just Mayo tastes just like real mayonnaise.  My favorite was the original flavor of Just Mayo but the other three were good as well and added nice flavors to my meals and sandwiches.
Just Cookie Dough is all-natural, cholesterol- and dairy- free. It can even be eaten raw, right out of the tub! The cookies are available in a variety of flavors that include chocolate chip, white chocolate–macadamia, sugar, peanut butter, and oatmeal-raisin.  Just Cookie Dough comes in a small tub and, I'll be honest with you, I grabbed a spoon and ate that cookie dough right as it was!  As we all learned in food science, cookie dough shouldn't be eaten raw due to possible illness occurring from the eggs.  No worries with that with Just Cookie Dough!  Again, I was impressed with how close it tasted to the cookie doughs I've eaten in the past.  It had a favorable amount of chocolate chips in it.  I can't say how well Just Cookie Dough cooks up or tastes when baked but I can almost bet, just from eating it raw, that it tastes yummy.

Have you eaten Just Mayo or Just Cookie Dough? 
 Would you eat Just Cookie Dough raw or make it into cookies?

No, I have not eaten Just Mayo but I think I would like to try the original.
I have not tried the cookie dough either but the peanut butter sounds good. And no I would not eat it raw. I have never had a taste for raw dough.
Love the review.

I would love to try the cookie dough raw. I have to repeatedly remind myself not to eat the raw dough when I'm making cookies but it is so tempting!
