Horseradish gets a tough rap in some circles. With its strong scent and taste, this kickin' little root is sometimes better associated with sinus clearing than tasty treats. A lot of us think of it as a bitter herb, then never think of it again.

The problem is all in presentation! If you've been forced to eat it pure with a forkful of roast beef and thought it was too strong, you may have been tempted to write off a wide world of horseradish delicacies.

And a wide world is what we've got! If you're hesitant to dive right in, we've got some fantastic treats whose showcase of horseradish along with other flavors just might convert you!

Our Kickin' Tomato Horseradish Dip has a smooth bite with a cool aftertaste, meaning you can savor the flavor without rushing for a glass of water. It's on our most requested list for a reason!

Dicks Perky Pickles score a cool 1 out of 5 chilies on our special hotness ranking system. The horseradish gives the pickle chunks a great lift! Buy them by the gallon!

Horseradish and Wisconsin White Cheddar pair terrifically together for a zippy flavor that is not overpowering (but does register a 4 out of 5 chilies, so proceed with caution) in our Horseradish Cheese Spread. We also have a Horseradish Cheese Block that clocks in at 3 out of 5 chilies for more sensitive taste buds.

If you're a full-on fan of horseradish, do not be deterred! We're sure you'll love these celebrations of your flavor of choice. And just for you, we have Super Hot Horseradish, Rocket Radish (Three times hotter!!) and the Horseradish Heaven basket to help you attain all your horseradish hopes and dreams.

Although deli meats and sausages should definitely be a part of any holiday party plans, the tasty offerings shouldn’t stop there. After all, neither man nor beast can live on just meats alone. So we’ve compiled a list of incredible finger foods and lip-smacking party treats that go beyond the expected fare:

1.) Hot and Spicy Beans

Why not skip the messy, bland, three bean salads and go with something pickle-icious instead? Yes, we’re talking hot, spicy, pickled green beans baby! They look fantastic on a plate and may be eaten with the fingers or a fork. For added color, combine the Hot and Spicy Beans with other sliced, pickled veggies like yellow and orange peppers.

2.) Wasabi Peas

Pair those beans with another crunchy veggie that’s been given a palatable twist, dried wasabi peas. They are inherently spicy too. So the two foods would just go well together. For a great tablescape look, consider putting the wasabi peas in vegetable baskets instead of regular bowls. Your guests should love it!

3.) Bloody Mary Soaked Pickles

We’ve likely all seen pickles on a party platter before. That’s because they’re an essential part of most party plans. However, you can opt to buck tradition and give your guests something they’re not expecting. Items that come to our minds are pickles that have been soaked with unusual brines. Can anyone say, “bloody Mary pickles?”

4.) Stuffed Olives

Okay, so we know that stuffed olives are typical holiday fare but there are ways to make them atypical. For example, you could stuff them with ingredients that no one would expect. Excellent choices include asparagus, pearl onions, garlic cloves, artichokes, bleu cheese and jalapeno.

5.) Chubby Cheeks

Lastly, why not get a little corny? To do just that, create one or a series of bowls that contain our Chubby Cheeks snack. It’s a churro caramel corn nugget treat that tastes great alone or with a few modifications. To alter the nuggets flavor, think about adding a dusting of powdered sugar, carob or cocoa.
