Egg Sandwich, Chocolate cake and Hampton Creek Mayo Giveaway

Hampton Creek Mayo has a wonderful smooth texture, perfect to add in a variety of recipes or use it as a delicious spread. This cholesterol free, affordable mayo has become our favourite in a variety of sandwiches. Hampton Creek Mayo is wonderful for people with soy and egg allergies, as it is egg free; we don't have to worry about salmonella risk.
