The best stuff with a good kick comes from freshly grated horseradish, a one you pull out of the ground yourself.
Polish foot is bland
Compared to India, Mexico etc, it is certainly bland; people like the idea of 'łagodny' here. It isn't for nothing that the word 'majonez' is used as an intensifying adjective now, in the expression "git majonez".
A while ago, I was at a very formal dinner in a hotel in Kato. The people there were mostly Poles, a few people originally from other countries, France, Ukraine and me. They served two soups, one was a very good zupa grzybowa, the other was a sort of thick and sweet puree with coconut and pear, basically baby food. The Poles were all saying how wonderful the baby food was, whereas the rest of us thought it was awful and enjoyed the zupa grzybowa.
