How much is a bag of chips in Poland?

Like a bag of chips in the US is 99 cents or a dollar let's say...

How much is a bag of chips in Poland? 1 Złotych? I am trying to understand what the standard money unit is. In some countries 1 USD could be like 1000 of WHATEVER but that 1000 doesn't mean anything, it's only a number. Anyone understand what I'm saying?

and what the heck is that? how are we supposed to answer such question :)
do you have chips sold in one size bag only?
in Poland the prices start at 0.70-1.00 zł (for a 20-22 grams bag)

I think he was meaning a single serving size.

still not helping :)
I can eat both 22 grams bag or 50 grams at once, no such thing as "single serving" in Poland.

If I asked how much for a beer in US, what would you answer?

(I'd be having in mind 0.5 l bottle, as it's the most popular size, but I guess your first thought could be different, don't know if you buy beers mostly in 0.5 l bottles, but I guess not)

Nope. We have childrens size snack bag, adult size snack bag, big bag and family size bags. All depends on how hungry you are.

Bee is also in a few different sizes.

Just for the chips or is a sandwich included with that?

what are you guys going on about? one serving is one small bag of chips. one beer costs anywhere from $2 for Olympia to 7 or 8 for premium import. that's a 12oz or 330ml.

Lol you guys made a huge fuss about this. I should've been more cogent with my question. I just wanted to know if the 1 zloty was the standard base amount of cash.

I said a bag of chips because its always a dollar which in the US is the standard base...

IT'S A STANDART FOR POLES BUT IT IS NOT FOR ANYONE ELSE UNLESS THEIR MONEY = ZL AT THE EXCHANGE (1:1)

Ok ok thanks. That is all I wanted to know. I know about the currency rates, I am not blind to the technology available. Just wanted to see what the Polish consider as a dollar, not how much the dollar's exchange rate is.

Lol, no I'm just being stupid. Your sentence was 97 characters long, which is a string in comp. sci. terms.
