British food products in Poland?

I am surprised that English mustard is hard to find

Tesco Finest or M&S again ;)

Polish mustard is fine.

I found a particularly cruel one infused with chilis a couple of weeks ago in Kaufland.

Polish horseradish sauce is better than anything you find in the UK

I made that mistake once.

By "mistake", I mean "my eyes were watering".

I've become accustomed to it, and slather it on. Great for opening the sinuses!
Isn't it strange that Polish food doesn't really feature hot dishes but does have dynamite horseradish?

Roger5 and Delph, very helpful as always...I shall attempt to wade my way thru all the local mustards! Could be a painful process as you said Deph :)) My husband loves Chrzan, Im a bit of a wuz and prefer it milder. One thing I really miss is sausage rolls, I have tried to make them myself but the sausagemeat never tastes right.

HP Sauce, Crumpets, Pork Pie, Maltesers for instance

HP sauce and Maltesers can be got from Allegro. Crumpets are at M&S. Pork pies are harder, I guess your nearest source would be M&S in Prague.

Bird's custard powder, Bisto, Colman's mustard immediately spring to mind.

The British shop on Emilii Plater has all of those (at a price).

Bovril which we also can't get here.

Again, the British shop on Emilii Plater has that.

I'm fairly sure some of the posters here have used this service :-

britishcornershop.co.uk

I've used them in the past but these days I get everything from Allegro or just when I'm in the UK.

dont think many brit expats could afford this on polish wages.

You don't think that Polish salaries can stretch to an extra 1.80zl for a can of beans? You really have got a lot to learn about Poland and Poles.

English mustard is hard to find

M&S have an excellent range of English mustards.

The last time I brought Marmite, the lads at Heathrow confiscated it. Two huge jars. They were sympathetic but took it anyway, along with several kilos of semtex cheddar.

Marmite I know you can't take back (it falls foul of the regulations on liquids), but that's the first I've heard of cheddar being confiscated. I always warn the staff on the x-ray machine that my bag contains "A lot of organic material and several slabs of cheese, which I've been told in the past x-rays exactly like something I won't say the name of here".

It was a few years ago, and at a time when security measures were still quite chaotic and arbitrary (shoes off, no electronic car keys).

Atora, Harry?

Atora, Harry?

The British shop in Warsaw can certainly get it for you, but at a very steep charge.
Your best bet would probably be one of the UK sellers on Allegro which specialise in selling UK products to people in Poland. I've used IK-Mercado-UK in the past and found them to be very good. Drop them an email and ask: irob.mercado@gmail.com

Alternatively, there was a seller on Allegro based in Bialystok who appeared to have a van coming from the UK every couple of weeks full of things such as salt & vinegar Pringles and HP sauce. I could try to find his details for you.

PG Tips teabags are the only thing I have ever missed when living out of the UK....
