It might be leading to a divorce but I bought old standard French’s yellow mustard on the way home as part of a phoned in “on your way home order” because my wife is making ‘tater salad for a cookout this weekend. Well I didn’t know that there’s a difference in mustards ... I was supposed to get Gulden’s. You’d think this was a Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge truck thing ...

    There is only Colman's English.

    I am just aghast.

    You know she's right. No one here is going to enable your mustard transgressions.

    You just cant  'cut the mustard'...........

    (As with many slang and idiomatic phrases, the origin of the phrase can be a bit unclear. ... The modern sense of the idiom is 'to succeed; to have the ability to do something; to come up to expectations', but the phrase is most often used in the negative form, as “can't cut the mustard,” meaning 'not able to handle the job'.)

    I prefer Plochmans in the yellow mustard world....
    Note...Just this year I discovered that you can successfully substitute yellow mustard for dry mustard in a mustard related emergency

    French's or Morehouse. Real YELLOW mustard. Not that Grey Poupon Dijon crap.

    All guns are equal right? So all mustard must just be the same. 

    Hot Chinese mustard for egg rolls
    Brown spicy mustard on good brats and wurst.
    That weak yellow stuff for hot dogs. 
    Then there are varieties like horseradish mustard for that extra kick on corned beef or roast beef. 
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    I normally don't taint my table with regular Baby Poop Mustard, but I make mustard potato salad and I find Frenches perfect for that application. For other uses such as sandwiches or on sausage I prefer a better grade. But for potato salad the plainer the better, in my opinion. It's mixed with Mayo anyway.

    A buddy’s French mom introduced me to this for cold sammiches. Awesome stuff!
