Grey Poupon is hungry for Olivia Wilde’s salad-dressing scandal

Don’t worry darling: Olivia Wilde’s “special” salad dressing recipe has something for everyone. Even Gray Poupon.

The mustard brand went on an ad bar on Thursday, announcing it was producing limited-edition Don’t Worry Dijon glasses commemorating the actor-director’s new film, Don’t Worry Darling, and a classic vinaigrette -Recipe emblazoned on the back.

This is after Wilde posted a salad dressing recipe on social media that alluded to the hot gossip swirling around her, her ex and her new boyfriend this week. And Gray Poupon was listed as an ingredient.

wait what Let’s go back.

Wilde split from fiancé Jason Sudeikis in 2020, and in early 2021 it was announced that she was dating singer/actor Harry Styles, who stars in Don’t Worry Darling. But on Monday, an anonymous former nanny accused Wilde of not having a clean break between those two relationships.

The nanny sent text messages to the Daily Mail, allegedly from Sudeikis, in which the ‘Ted Lasso’ star told the nanny that Wilde had left him and their children Daisy and Otis to bring Styles a homemade snack.

“She left [the kids]. Awake. Sitting in Daisy’s bed. After he shamed me for going to Kansas and not wearing a mask. Yes… you’re wide awake,” Sudeikis reportedly wrote. “I’m in shock. That’s crazy. She just left them.”

He then reportedly added, “Took her salad and dressing and left her.”

Apparently, Wilde had prepared a salad for Styles in the family kitchen using her “special dressing,” the Daily Mail reported. And the internet exploded over this tasty detail. Everyone wanted to know what was so special about this dressing.

The former couple promptly released a joint statement, condemning the nanny’s stories as “false and whimsical allegations” and “expressing the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”

But Wilde jumped on the gossip band herself on Wednesday, according to TMZ, posting a page from Nora Ephron’s memoir Heartburn to her Instagram Stories. The site contained a recipe for Ephron’s vinaigrette: Combine 2 tablespoons Gray Poupon with 2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar. Whisk with a fork, adding 6 tablespoons olive oil as you go, until the mixture is creamy.

Did Gray Poupon have no choice but to join? Don’t, mon frère, don’t.

“You too might wow someone with a pinch of Gray Poupon with our limited edition ‘Don’t Worry Dijon’ jars – stay tuned for how you can get your hands on one,” the mustard brand wrote on Instagram on Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Gray Poupon, who promised the Times the Don’t Worry Dijon jars are indeed real, said 100 of them are in the works to “commemorate” – or should capitalize? – the drama. The brand promises more details via its Instagram account next week.

Gray Poupon, which was made in Oxnard, California for the US markets decades ago, has already trodden the limited edition route and released a mustard white wine about a year ago, as the mustard itself is made from white wine.

Le Moutarde Vin, a 2020 Napa Valley Viognier infused with mustard seeds, was conceived as a publicity stunt — much like Don’t Worry Dijon — but its release was met with criticism nonetheless.

Nerdist said the wine went from a spicy start to reveal its “lively acidity,” which “more closely resembles the burst of light produced by an atomic bomb. …Thanos would be very angry about that acidity.”

“The mustard doesn’t fully hit until you swallow the wine, at which point it manifests as the same kind of retronasal heat you get from a big gulp of mustard when you eat it, the spiciness traveling to the back of your throat,” , wrote the reviewer of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I tend not to mind the spicy, burning, throaty feeling in mustard — I find it invigorating, in fact. In a wine, however, it is not so pleasant.”

Lousy reviews didn’t matter, though. Gray Poupon’s mustard wine sold out in one day. A hundred glasses of Don’t Worry Dijon should fly off the shelves just as quickly.
