Mustard: Billy Bee Original Honey Mustard

If I need honey mustard for a sandwich or just about anything else, this is my go-to.  Made by the Canadian company Billy Bee, it simply blows other grocery store HMs out of the water.

FLAVOR - Slightly tacky sweetness, filled out with light but delicious brown mustard flavor and a suggestion of vinegar
CONSISTENCY - Fairly thick, coats food well
APPEARANCE - Lighter shade of mustard yellow, tiny visible mustard grains 

SMELL - Straight mustard smell, little indication of sweetness
AVAILABILITY - Readily available

INGREDIENTS - Water, sugar, dextrose, #1 mustard seed, honey, vinegar, salt, modified tapioca starch, titanium dioxide (for color), spices, caramel color, garlic powder, yellow #5, natural flavor

I consider this to be a "true" honey mustard, in that it's made with brown mustard, as opposed to yellow.  I use it at least 2-3 times per week, mostly on turkey and chicken cold cut sandwiches or subs.  It's also pretty good on fried foods (especially chicken tenders) as well as pork dishes.  If you're using one of the lesser store-bought brands, give it a shot.
