One of my most frequent snack purchases at Trader Joe's has been their frozen Big Soft pretzels. When that first came out, it was difficult to keep them in the house. My husband and I were eating them like they were going out of style. With a tub of pub cheese no less. Now, I have something new to dip them in: Trader Joe's Honey Pale Ale Mustard.
Now don't get me wrong, I like pub cheese. But when we eat certain other things honey mustard is a must.
In fact, White Castle's Chicken Rings comes to mind. In pretty sure we might have had to equitably distribute the honey mustard packets that come with our take out order. And if you couldn't tell, we don't do fancy very much.
So, when this hit shelves, I figured it is a lower calorie alternative to pub cheese, I figured I'd give it a go.
While close, it reminded me of those little packets of White Castle goodness, with some key differences.
This overall tastes more like a dijon style mustard. You get a good amount of honey flavor. The texture is smooth and it will coat whatever you dip into it. Alternatively, this would totally pair well with a protein as well.
As I was eating my pretzel I was totally craving hot dogs with this.
But the one thing that did not come through much was the pale ale flavor. It's the last ingredient, but it was hard to taste through the mustard which overwhelmed it.
Despite not being able to taste it, it is a really well done honey mustard. Best of all this jar is priced right at $1.99.
Would I buy this again? Trader Joe's Honey Pale Ale Mustard is a solid yes from me. It is a good condiment to keep on hand.
