Christian: This one was not good. Maybe our ingredient proportions were off, but I didn’t even finish it. Everything was overwhelmed by the mustard, and I can safely say that Dijon is now my least favorite type of mustard. By far. This is a little weird to me because I remember preferring it as a child to the regular yellow variety, but I might have just been under an advertising trance by Grey Poupon’s commercials like this one:
Anyway, the only thing I liked about this one was the apples, of which we did not put enough on the sandwich. After working on a previous sandwich, I didn’t like the Brie here, and the pretzel bread continues to be a chewy, gummy letdown.
“Pardon me, would you have any garbage sandwiches?”
Susannah: I was intrigued by this one, just from reading the ingredients, but still a little skeptical. I guess it was good to error on the side of caution because I don’t know if I can call this one a success. This is one of the few times the contents can actually stand up to the overwhelmingness of the pretzel bread but then they are so discordant it makes every bite unpleasant. The raw onions and dijon are too powerful to even acknowledge the apples and the brie just kind of fades into the background. I am not one who usually adds fruit to my sandwiches, but I get the appeal. I also understand why it’s good to have vegetarian options, but in this case I think the only thing that could have saved this sandwich was some meat. It’s not a sandwich I would like to revisit.
