It is very similar to French's IMO; close enough that most people can't tell the difference around here. I've used both (actually have a big squeezer of Plochmann's in the fridge now).

Thanks, Shunka, for letting me know about the similarity!

I think it's awesome that you've found an American flavor you love! (And even better that you have a friend to send it!)

Rollingstone, besides being a mustard fan, what types of food do you like to cook?
PS - great avatar, btw.

I haven't read all the responses but Plochman's makes better mustard than French's!! I will say however that my favorite Plochman's is a very grainy one. Hard to believe it is so much cheaper than French's.

Thanks for the avatar appreciation, folks. Animal's avatar is an homage to my drummer pal....we jam Rolling Stones songs together...the best we can...I play rhythm and the occasional lead guitar :) And he kinda shows his teeth, too, when he's playing the drums, particularly when he goes off at a tangent and choses to jam to Black Sabbath stuff, hehehe.

Food-wise, I love to cook Punjabi food, which comes from my dad's side. Like to experiment, too. I make pretty decent pizza bases and like baking pies in general and making pound cakes. Right now, I'm learning how to make satay sauce.

OT* -- meeting my Texan pal was by luck. He was also inter-railing, as I was, around Europe, a decade back, and we hooked-up in Budapest, Hungary. Now he airmails me hampers of North American stuff I like (e.g. Hershey bars, Barbasol, you name it....and soon mild yellow mustard palettes :-D). He's invaluable, in that regard!

What!! He doesn't go off playing Def Leppard? GASP!! Just kidding!! Do you like H.I.M.? My daughter got to meet them at their concert in AZ last summer. BTW, I think you will really like the Plochmann's mustard!!! Thinking back on it, I seem to remember my family using that more than French's when I was growing up.

Thanks for all the views, folks...I'm gonna go ahead and convince my Austinite pal to order online the batch of Plochman's mild yellow, and then airmail all those goodies off to me.

Signing off for now -- it's past midnight here and I'm gonna hit the hay. Take care...hope to return to the Board later in the week.

Ciao,
RS

I know. It seems to have dropped out of our stores also, and the jar I can find now is half the size of the one I used to get.
