Pylsusinnep - Hot Dog Mustard by SS
The legendary SS Pylsusinnep that to this day (and every day from now until the sun swallows the Earth) is the most important ingredient on an Icelandic hot dog. Unchanged in taste and appearance for decades despite generations of graphic designers dreaming of getting their paws on the design. Also check out the Vals Tómatsósa!
For decades the world famous Bæjarins Bestu hot dog stand has had an edge over their local competition. But what is it that sets them apart? The view from our office (and nose for investigative journalism) has given us an unprecedented opportunity to uncover their secret! Are you ready?
We noticed a mysterious white van that came every Thursday morning with a delivery of gallons of ketchup...But was it Hunt's or Libby's or Heinz? No! Turns out that it is a unknown Icelandic Ketchup called Vals Tómatsósa! Vals was founded with the sole purpose of supplying this very hot dog stand in 1960! Can you believe it? And what is more; it only contains a third of what these international brands are using in added sugar! So more healthy AND better AND now available to you!
Not too spicy, just a little sweet, this mustard is like nothing in the US, and it's delicious. I can't wait to try in on more than hot dogs.
This brought back memories of too many hot dogs eaten in Iceland.
You can get pretty close to the real experience when putting this one on any hotdog. Relive your memories :)
I don’t often write reviews of products for websites, but I am a big fan of hotdogs and hotdog accoutrements and frankly, don’t have much else going on today. If you are bored with the usual mustards, be sure order a bottle of this fine Pylsusinnep. It’s sweet, mustardy, light brown, and a little runnier than typical pedestrian mustards. With a name that rolls off the tongue and roughly translates to “sausage mustard”, Pylsusinnep is Iceland’s most famous mustard, but that may be because it is the only Icelandic mustard? You won’t be able to read a single word on the bottle, but the smiling hotdog man lets you know that you are in for a good time. When you bring it to a backyard barbeque this summer it will surely impress your gauche and parochial friends. They will think you are a sophisticated international jetsetter and be in awe of your refined palate for tube steak toppings. Make sure to pair it with ketchup, remoulade, and fried onions for an experience that will transfer you back to Bæjarins Beztu’s along the quaint and picturesque streets of Reykjavik - or it may just transfer you to the time where you had a three-hour layover at Keflavik Airport. Either way, the shipping and price for this on the Grapevine’s site is way better than anywhere else.
Thank you Michael. Glad you enjoy the Sinnep. It is truly the best mustard for hot dogs.
