...I was just wondering, what is the main Polish export article? Something that is known world-wide and yet is original from, or was first produced in PL?

I saw Lolek en Bolek as a kid on Dutch and German television, mainly on German TV though. I thought they came from Czechia, but it turns out they're from PL.

Examples:

Sweden: Abba
Netherlands: Flowers
Ireland: Guinness
UK: Brits abroad :))
and so on...

M-G (and I don't mean Polish girls, ok?)

Come on guys, you can think of a major Polish export-article?

Let me myself give the kick-off: Kielbasa.

M-G (buys them regularly - reminds him of the sausages back in the Netherlands)

M-G, you are stupid ;) ;)

Sobieski is a known vodka here and a former Polish king I think.

I tried Sobieski, it was pretty good but it gave me a headache the next day. It's pretty cheap too, somethnig like $8 for a fifth. I think it's a rye vodka. On the label it said "Distilled Enough" LOL

You have to drink it frozen, it's super then. Not too much of it though, it can really put you on the floor if you mix.

I have heard 'Miś Uszatek' is (or was) well known in Portugal.

Has anyone seen HSBC commercial ad? Apparently Polish washing machines sales are up in India - lol, I know it is just an ad but it makes me laugh everytime I see it.
