    Great idea about the nuggets!

  12. yoyomax12 says:

    There isn’t much mustard in there, so it isn’t really spicy, but you can taste the flavour.

  13. pinkiepandaXD says:

    does the spicy brown mustard make the sauce spicy?

  14. pinkiepandaXD says:

    these would be great as nuggets too and you could dip it in the cheese mustard sauce, mmmmm sounds good
