HUNT VALLEY, Md., Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, French's® announced the release of French's Mustard Buns in celebration of National Mustard Day on August 7th. Developed in partnership with Piantedosi Baking Company, a New England based wholesale bakery with over 100 years of expertise, French's is rolling out  limited-edition mustard buns baked with French's® Classic Yellow Mustard that are the perfect way to add more flavor to backyard barbecues and baseball games this summer. French's Mustard Buns will be available starting August 7th from select well-known landmarks and baseball stadiums across the U.S. in cities such as New York, NY; Baltimore, MD; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL; and Boston, MA while supplies last.

"For over 115 years, French's has delivered bold, all-American flavor to customers nationwide," said Jill Pratt, Chief Marketing Excellence Officer for McCormick. "Year after year, we look forward to raising the French's flag in celebration of National Mustard Day, by introducing exciting new ways to enjoy the bright, tangy taste of mustard."

French's, the brand that brought you Mustard Ice Cream and Mustard Beer, is committed to providing elevated flavor experiences for mustard lovers across the U.S. The French's Mustard Buns are golden in color, soft in texture, with a distinct, yet subtle tang that doesn't overpower.

Together, we have over 200 years of quality, creativity and experience," said Carmine Piantedosi, Operations Manager, 4th Generation and Owner at Piantedosi Baking Company.
