Grey Poupon Packets - HELP! on 04/25/2013 14:45:35 MDT Print View

I am leaving tomorrow afternoon for a weekend trip and had planned to use Grey Poupon packets with some cheese and a nice salami for my lunches. I wasn't too worried because a restaurant next door to my office carried them. However I went to pick some up today and apparently they too have given in and switched to the crappy French's yellow mustard.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any chain restaurants that carried them where I could grab a few? Or local stores/chains in the DC/Northern VA area. Thanks!

Can't think of any place, but you could just repackage some from the glass jar into a smaller, lighter container to take with you.

Often you can get stuff like that from minimus.biz , but you won't get it overnight.

Ask nicely at your local grocery store deli if they have any...you'd be surprised :-)

I asked nicely at Safeway last night and came up empty.

+1 on Mimimus.biz. The fun part is the free shipping if you buy $20, giving a great excuse for getting all kinds of good stuff. Definitely get the "hotel freebie" style sewing kits and check out single application insect repellent, sunscreen, medicaiond and all kinds of condiments.

To fix the problem at hand, I would go to the travel accessories in a big box store and get a small squeeze bottle. With the current airline restrictions on the quantities of liquids, stores are carrying more bottles. REI has GoToobs.

Safeway tends to be pretty bland in choices :-( I find if the place carries Boar's Head meats, they tend to have higher end squeeze packets ;-)

Having said that....a small jar will keep a veeerrryyyy long time. It is vinegar ;-)

A few near me used to carry them. But they quite carrying them because people kept coming in and grabbing a few.
