Sounds too good to be true, but here goes :

They too aren't sure if it can be a permanent replacement.

Quoting the conclusions page :

"Conclusions
The big surprise of this month was the performance of the mayonnaise as a thermal compound. It worked superbly, showing better performance than some well-known high-performance thermal greases. Again, we cannot determine how long it should remain effective, but in the short term, mayonnaise was the best alternative thermal compound we have seen so far. "

I like how chocolate performed worse then no paste. Choc is for eating, not a paste.
