French's Created Mustard-Infused Hot Dog Buns for National Mustard Day
The mustard is baked into the dough.
Hot dogs and mustard go together like peanut butter and jelly. There's even a holiday to celebrate the pairing: National Mustard Day. The only way to celebrate, of course, is to enjoy a hot dog loaded up with mustard and whatever other toppings you like.
French's, maker of the bright yellow mustard you know and love, has teamed up with Piantedosi Baking Company to create something genius: mustard-infused buns. No more wrestling with the bottle for the last bits of mustard or worrying about dripping the tangy yellow stuff on your clothes.
"For over 115 years, French's has delivered bold, all-American flavor to customers nationwide," Jill Pratt, chief marketing excellence officer at McCormick, said in a press release. "Year after year, we look forward to raising the French's flag in celebration of National Mustard Day, by introducing exciting new ways to enjoy the bright, tangy taste of mustard."
French's recommends that those who get their hands on the Mustard Buns still add a drizzle of mustard to their dog. After all, you can never have too much.
The buns still have the bright yellow hue of mustard, as well as the tangy punch you'd expect. French's Mustard Buns will be available beginning on August 7 at select landmarks and baseball stadiums across the United States. Cities where you can expect to find hot dogs and mustard buns include New York, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston. French's Mustard Buns will be available for a limited time while supplies last.
Here's exactly where to get your hands on them for free on August 7:
- The Hot Dog King (New York)
- The Lodge (Chicago)
- Pier Burger (Santa Monica)
You can also find them at Yankee Stadium and Camden Yards. You'll have to purchase a concession hot dog to get the bun, though. French's Mustard Buns will also be available on August 14 at The Best Sausage Company in Boston. They will be free while supplies last.
Since not everyone will have a chance to taste French's Mustard Buns, the company is releasing two mustard-forward recipes for home bakers: French's Mustard Challah Bread and French's Mustard Beer Bread. You could serve them at your next barbecue and it'll almost be the same thing.
