Pappy's Gold Rush Spicy MustardHey there, loyal readers! My featured product on tonight’s Fiery Friday is a simple one. I’m taking a look at Pappy’s Gold Rush Spicy Mustard (from the folks at BourbonQ), a little jar of the ever-popular yellow condiment. I love mustard, but spicy mustard is incredibly ubiquitous, so I’m hoping that this stuff can hold up to the jars and bottles you can easily find in stores.


 

Ingredients:

Mustard (vinegar, select mustard seed, salt, turmeric, spices), Honey, Spices (paprika, garlic, onion, pepper, thyme, oregano)

No surprises here. To be honest, though, I was hoping for something that screams “spicy,” but there’s nothing here in this list that really makes this stand out from the competition. I am pleased, though, that it doesn’t rely on horseradish for its burn. Ugh.

Appearance:

This is a yellow mustard, much like the typical generic mustard. In fact, if it didn’t come in a cute little jar, it would be almost indistinguishable from every other yellow mustard out there.

Smell and Taste:

Despite the presence of honey in the ingredients list, Pappy’s Gold Rush neither smells nor tastes like honey mustard. It is a standard mustard through and through, albeit one with a slightly more pungent bite to it than the bog-standard stuff.

Ratings:

FLAVOR

In what universe is this considered spicy? Seriously, I want to know, because I bet I could go there and conquer it with something midway up our scale. This stuff is a Mild at best, and won’t give anyone any problems in the heat department. The good news, though, is that it’s freakin’ delicious. I can just eat it straight out of the jar like a dip, it’s that good. I’m giving it a Notable.

Suggested Uses:

It’s mustard. If you don’t know how to use mustard by now, there’s really no hope for you.

Final Word:

I kept this one short, because honestly there’s not much to say about a standard mustard product. You’re just like you’re so delicious, Pappy’s Gold Rush.
