While I teethed on it, and it *is* yellow and somewhat mustardish, it sucks, particularly if you consider the variety of other options available in these times (Nance's *rules*, man). So though it may not make your language analogy page, let us say: French's Mustard is to mustard what Wonder Bread is to bread. It keeps selling, so someone in Northern Minnesota must like it.
