"Pardon me but do you have any Grey Poupon?"

Why yes, as a matter of fact I do! I have two types of Grey Poupon -
There's this very tasty Hearty Spicy Brown flavor and
this Harvest Coarse Ground flavor.
I recently received both of these Grey Poupon mustards in the mail to try out and then write an honest review on which was great because anytime I can get free foodstuffs in the mail to try out in exchange for simply writing a post you can count me in! You can also count on me to give an honest opinion and that's exactly what I'm going to give you in regards to these two mustards.

Amanda is a yellow mustard only kinda kid so she wasn't of much help in reviewing these mustards so I called in the help of my dispatch supervisor who knows a good thing when he's handed it! I asked him to try out the Harvest Coarse Ground mustard for me and he was more than happy to put it on the ham that he was preparing at home that night. He assured me that it was absolutely delicious and really added to the flavor of the meat. Watching a grown man drool over a mustard is quite the sight but apparently the Harvest Coarse Ground is just that good!

That left me with the Hearty Spicy Brown to try so I trotted off to my local grocery store and picked up the fixin's for a sandwich or two - roast beef, turkey, provolone cheese, and some nice soft Kaiser rolls. I came home with my mouth watering, constructed a sandwich using the Hearty Spicy Brown mustard, and then sat back to enjoy it. To be honest, I haven't had a sandwich that good in a long time as the mustard added just the right kick to it. I've probably got some of the country's blandest taste buds this side of the Mississippi River but this mustard added just the right amount of spices without being overpowering or sending me reaching for the closest glass of water to put out the fire in my mouth!

Should the good folks at Kraft Foods want to send me a sample of all the other mustards in the Grey Poupon line, I'd be more than happy to give them a go (hint, hint!) but I guess one shouldn't look a gift mustard in the mouth. It's better to put it there instead!


  1. Mmmmm Mustard, yum. Loves me some good quality mustard.

  2. Dang - how'd you get your name on the list to get free food samples - and especially for some great mustards too? Let me know as I'd be more than happy to write reviews of food products! I'd even allow my photo to be used with them to show how MUCH I have enjoyed these food products in the past too. On second thought - that might not necessarily be a good selling point there would it?

  3. good stuff that grey poupon, my husband loves it!

  4. Please pass either jar of Gray Poupon and a napkin please.


    Hmmm...we have a grocery trip coming up. Can you guess what's going on the list?

  5. we don't eat Grey Poupon as it's made with copious amounts of white wine.....hubby actually went through a time where he would come home and CRAVE a tablespoonful of mustard...then he read the ingredients...(he's a recovering alcoholic)....he said it teased the disease waaaayy too much! Probably why it tastes sooo good!

  6. I am very picky about mustard. Hubby uses any kind that's cheap. I go out and get my own. I love mustard on a good sandwich. You just made me hungry now!

  7. Funny, but I'm not a big mustard fan. Probably because all we used was French's yellow mustard and all it's really good on is a hot dog!
    Over the years I've learned to like honey mustard but you've piqued my imagination!! Have to give some of that a try...

  8. Dude, I love mustards like some people like wine.
    Haven't seen any new Grey Poupon flavors around here yet, but will keep my eyes open!


Thanks for visiting!
