Where can I buy California raisins, or natural raisins in Poland?

Back home in California, many's a time I've gotten me some California raisins which are so very sweet and juicy with just no additives or sulphur to preserve them neither. Just as nature intended, yes sir.

When I was living in the UK, I could easily walk into those British folks' supermarkets like Asbury's and easily pick up some Sun Maid California Raisins at just a couple of bucks a pop.

Here in Polska there seems to be nowhere I can get my hands on some good, honest wholesome natural raisins! Most (perhaps all) have veg oil and maybe preservatives.

Any tips on getting me some natural raisin action in these parts? Should I try markets or health stores?

We could barter some California raisins for some yummy Polish chocolates!!!

What chocs do you want, Beckski? Surely you'd prefer some Cadbury's chocolate from the UK? A lot of the chocolate here contains hydrogenated vegetable fat -- as you'd know being a fellow Californian that stuff just ain't good! I know Polish chocolate's nicer than most US stuff, but that bar ain't high.

nicer than most US stuff,

Never knew you folks produce something close to resembling chocolate :)
Sorry, but I come from the original chocolate country :)

Good jaysus! Is American chocolate that bad?

In my experience, most of it is quite bland, with a poor texture. There are probably exceptions, but I can't think of any right now.

I'm seriously thinking of ordering some Cadbury's Flake from either the British shop in Warsaw (thank you Harry) or Amazon UK. If I win the Lotto, I'll order some raisins too.

Yes, but not necessarily bez additives and preservatives.
But Sun Maid's Natural range are.

Sweet, moist, and flavorful. Sun-Maid Raisins: Go anywhere.

Don't spoil, bruise, or need refrigeration.
Are 100% natural.
<--- applies to Natural range only (the ones I want).

No sulphur dioxide, no coating of vegetable oil or (worse!) palm oil

Q:Are there additives or preservatives in Raisins?
A: In our Sun-Maid Natural Raisins there are no additives or preservatives. When the raisins are ready to be processed, we clean the raisins using large aspirators (vacuums), graders, and shakers to remove stems, dirt, and other foreign objects. We then do a very thorough washing in fresh water which rehydrates the raisins.

Sun-Maid Golden Raisins are cleaned in much the same way, although these raisins are treated with the preservative sulfur dioxide.
