Grey Poupon

LORELAI: Don’t you have any kind of holiday special? Something festive?
LUKE: I just got some Grey Poupon. That’s French.

Grey Poupon is a brand of mustard originating in Dijon, France, and first produced in 1866. The American rights to it were bought in 1946, and it was eventually acquired by Kraft Foods in 1999. The mustard became popular in the US in the late 1970s and ’80s.
