As part of the partnership, fans will be able to enjoy Silver Spring horseradish at suites and special events inside the stadium. Silver Spring will also surprise and delight Packers fans with samples and special offers outside the Johnsonville Tailgate Village at two home games: against the Minnesota Vikings, September 16, and against the Buffalo Bills, September 30.

In preparation for the football season, Silver Spring Foods has also released the recipe for its Legendary Silver Spring Bloody Mary as well as several recipes and ideas for game day appetizers.

"As a Wisconsin-based, family-owned business dating back to 1929, we value tradition here," said Silver Spring owner Eric Rygg. "And one of our favorite traditions is enjoying a Bloody Mary and watching the Packers play football on Sundays. So it's an honor to share this custom with fans in Wisconsin and across the country."

Green Bay Packers fans are among the most avid of any sports team and were named number one in tailgating experience by 247 Sports, a division of CBS Digital.
