Ketchup Won’t Cut The Mustard At National Mustard Day

MOUNT HOREB, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Folks at the Mount Horeb Mustard Museum in Wisconsin will be rolling out the yellow carpet Aug. 6 for National Mustard Day.

Thousands of fans of the yellow condiment are expected to flock to the small town to taste the 4,000 plus different kinds of mustard the museum carries.

Museum curator Barry Levenson says, “We have more kinds of mustard than Pete Rose has hits” and figures the chocolate and cheese flavored mustards will be particular favorites among visitors.

In addition to free samples of mustard, there will be mustard games such as Mustard Ring Toss and Mustard Bowling, a mustard cook-off, a video tribute to the history of mustard and free hotdogs.

Still, what won’t cut the mustard at the event will be ketchup. Levenson’s charging $10 for a bottle of ketchup to those who want to mellow out the mustard.
