    "While Americans like to smother their fries in ketchup or that bright-orange tangy slop they call mustard"
     
    Doesn't sound like any mustard I know...

    Whaddaya gonna do, it's Australia.  Toilets flush counterclockwise, they play a really weird version of football (no, I'm not talking about soccer), and "bright-orange" means bright-yellow.  Just grab yer billabong, sling it over yer drongo, head out to the woop-woop, and don't worry about it.

    Like you, I have many different salts, but a chicken salt isn't one of them. Took me a few minutes to find the ingredients in it and, frankly, I don't get it. "Salt 75%, Chicken Flavour 10%, Paprika, Onion, Food Acid (Citric), Garlic, Rice Flour, Pepper, Celery Seed."
     Sounds like bullion powder with a bit more salt. Might be OK on fries or something, but there are definitely other flavourings I'd seek out first. And who puts mustard on fries? I've cooked up tons of them and never had a customer ask for mustard for them. I'm wary of the authors creds.

    And who puts mustard on fries?

    My wife's been dipping her fries in a 50/50 mixture of ketchup and mustard for years, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone else do it.

    The above listed article didn't list chicken flavor as part of the ingredient (salt, a umami flavoring with onion and garlic and a little bit of paprika or turmeric).     But if you recognize paprika is a sweet pepper then many blends of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper (cayenne, black, paprika and/or combination of these) is used by many of us. Lawry seasoning for one.  I  just never tried these on my fries.
     
    Now after quick check, the mexican blend Maggi Pollo does match the description with chicken flavor.     I do use this while cooking but have never put it on my fries.   I might try it ....

    I've never dipped anything in it, myself. I do use about that mixture for ham sandwiches, though. Been doing it since I was a kid, because my mom always dressed them that way for us. Ketchup and mayo on fries is my usual.

    Your wife has good taste. I've been doing it for years also, as does my wife and daughter. I bet your wife likes sauteed onions also
