We Tried French’s Creamy Dill Pickle Mustard—and It’s a Must

Ever since we’ve known about the release of French’s Dill Pickle Mustard, we’ve been stewing in anticipation. The Venn diagram of foods that pair well with pickles and foods that pair well with yellow mustard is basically a circle. Don’t believe me? Sandwiches, deviled eggs, burgers, hot dogs…even some Asian dishes like banh mi taste great with both flavors. 

So when the new French’s mustard arrived at the Sporked office, we all crowded around it in reverence, oohing and ahhing as our editor-in-chief held it up like baby Simba in The Lion King. Needless to say, we went into this review with high hopes. Very high hopes. So without further ado, let’s get into it, shall we? 

French's Dill Pickle Mustard

New Product!

French’s Creamy Dill Pickle Mustard

It’s official: We’re crowning French’s Creamy Dill Pickle Mustard king of the jungle (you know, like Simba). It’s so nice when a product meets—and in this case, exceeds—our expectations. As soon as we tasted it, we could think of a million uses for this dill pickle mustard. “All you need is this and some potatoes, and you have a potato salad,” said my colleague Jordan Myrick. “This would bang on a ham sandwich,” Mythical Chef Josh Scherer chimed in.  

Pros: This dill pickle mustard recipe has balance. It isn’t too much of one thing, which gives it a universal appeal. The mustard is beautifully light, creamy, and easy to spread. The dill pickle brings out subtle yet delightfully salty, sour, and umami flavors. I can definitely see a world in which brands go too bold on the pickle and make a condiment that overwhelms your dishes instead of enhances them. But French’s Dill Pickle Mustard is a fridge staple, not a novelty product you bring out every once and a while. 

Cons: There’s only one unpleasant thing about this, and it’s the color, which is a little bit pukey. That’s it. That’s all I got. *chants the Circle of Life*

  • A positive review on a successful condiment variation. The only other good variation was Heinz Tabasco added Ketchup. Two original condiment staples that could well handle this 👌

  • PSA that trader joes already has a product like this that’s been out a couple years

    • Theres no trader Joe’s in canada, there is French’s though…

  • I absolutely fell in love with it, after my first bite. It took me weeks to find it in a local store, but once I did, instant obsession. 🥒

  • I’ve been waiting to try this because some of the specialty dill mustards are overpriced and not that good. French’s is a winner for me except for the excess sodium. I mix it half and half with reg French’s yellow and it’s PERFECT!
