2 New Grey Poupons- A review

Recently I was asked to try and give an honest review of the two new Grey Poupon varieties of mustard. First I would like to share a little mustard story or two with you. That's right, mustard stories!

Once, a long, long time ago, I prepared and brought Deviled eggs to a barbecue at a friend's house. You should probably know that I use a bit of regular mustard along with plenty of Grey Poupon in my recipe for deviled eggs. I happen to like the kick it adds to the yokes and mayo to create the perfect egg. Well, I apparently got a little excited with the Grey Poupon mustard and over spiced the eggs to everyone else's taste, except my own, of course. My friends all tried to accuse me of attempting to assassinate them with mustard. After this, mustard of any kind was dubbed 'Becca Sauce' in my circle and everyone would remind me of my attempt on their very lives at every possible convenience. The legend has died down a bit now but every now and then, I get a little reminder.

One day a few years later, I was visiting a friend who had a very young daughter. She was probably 2 1/2 or so...she came around the corner into the living room with a bottle of mustard mumbling something in the most angelic precious voice you can imagine this side of heaven which I had to ask her to repeat a couple of times before I could make out that she was saying, "Becca? You sauce?" Once I figured it out...they had sent her in there loaded with that mustard and the gentle reminder and had put her up to it! That's just wrong, using an innocent child to bring up the past! It happened before she was born! LOL

So needless to say, I was all too excited to be included in a product review to try out these two new varieties of Grey Poupon. The one on the left in this photo is made with whole seeds. Admittedly, I was reluctant to try this one because it seemed sorta chunky but once I did, I have to say it wasn't so bad. Sometimes I have textural issues...but this one wasn't too shabby.

The one to the right is made with tiny little bits of onion! It adds a sort of sweetness to the mustard and really gets your sandwich going! I've enjoyed my turkey sandwich with the spicy mustards! So if you already enjoy Grey Poupon, why not give these new flavors a try?

Very cute story and a wonderful review, Becca. It's a shame I don't like mustard, because this a great review.

I loved the story, and it's so funny that your friends used their little one to remind you. Kids say the funniest things too! I love mustard, but Mikayla doesn't. I find this funny because she happens to love "double eggs" which we make with mustard here as well!!
