I just came across an artlcle about Polish food products gaining more popularity in German supermarkets. Some food producers have achieved a marketing success there and sell large quantities of their products.

Although some are sold under foreign labels, e.g, kabanos thin sausages by Tarczyński as Stick it!

E.g, Tyskie Beer talked about in German media

"Tyskie" is no more a resonable priced beer in Germany. It is now more expensive than some German beers. The same Tarczynski, is more expensive than others. But it is (as Tarczyński) not everywhere available.

Tarczynski, is more expensive than others.

Exactly coz they are exclusive food worth royal palates. See it in this short documentary which stars the Queen. You know which one I am talking about. :

I am happy for Tarczyński but I am also no fan of it. 500 kcal in 100g is simply to much for me.

Yes, but we need more fat for the coming winter! Clothing is never thick enough to keep warm.

OK, why don`t you try plant kabanos sausage from Tarczyński? I did and it was fine.

Tarczyński b

Our local supermarket has this Tarczynski product. I made the mistake of buying some just to see. I tried to eat a tiny bit and spat it out. Vile.

I also tried it out but didn`t consider it a mistake. Funny product.

Funny product.

The one I had just tasted of dried onion and over-hot chilli.

I sometimes wonder why Polish companies who make pasztet (the good pate type, not the tubs/jars of potted meat which are basically the same as is found anywhere) don't market some of the better ones abroad, e.g. ones containing wild boar. They would probably sell well and some types are excellent.

@jon357; I wonder....
Surely it is about the expiry date. You must eat a good Polish pate within a few days. Such a Product cannot be sold abroad. For example, I remember the Polish marshmallow "ptasie mleczko", whith initially had a four-week expiry date. After joining the EU and taking over the producer by some foreign company, the first thing they did was to extend the period of validity to half a year. Moreover, western stores are not experienced in storing Polish food. Years ago, I saw dozens of Polish Krakowska-sausages in Penny Markt, which were displayed incorrectly on shelves, and not in refrigerators, broke down in full mark, rotten and mouldered.

There are some decent long life ones, and they all contain preservatives and can be packed using co2 so that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Krakowska

I'd store it in a cool place too, however Krakowska never really goes off.

In foreign shops Polish sugar costs 3 zlotys while in Polish shops - 5 because people panicked and bought out the whole supply.

Polish sugar in Romania

These sugar packets remind me of German sugar. Very similar.
We practically do not use sugar in our family.

Our local biedronka is rationing sugar. Perhaps because it's all being exported, perhaps for other reasons like panic buying.

Poland produces a lot of sugar so this is strange.

Better if it all got exported, better that foreigners get poisoned by that **** then Polish citizens.

It poisons the brain, makes you slow, intoxicated and increases risk of making insulin resistance (by effect increasing chance of diabetes)

Coz Germans copy everything from Poles. Once in a basement pub they played nice music so I started dancing between the tables. With my wife, of course. There were also German tourists who first watched in complete disbelief but soon joined us in the dance.

Why?

It poisons the brain

Refined sugar is certainly bad however the Polish diet is high in it.

Even coca cola in Poland has much more sugar than in the UK and Germany.

Wow. I had no idea. ???A?D@!%$%?B^#s

Yes, true. When I make pickled cucumber jar preserves, I add more sugar than vinegar. I will never forget my aunt saying that vinegar is very harmful: Remember my dear child, one drop of vinegar kills two drops of blood!!!! I was scared shytless listening to it.

pickled cucumber

I see this term in badly translated menus sometimes. Gherkin is a better word than cucumber for the gruntowy ones. If say picked cucumber for the quick (very quick) picked ones using thinly sliced long cucumbers and malt vinegar in the style traditional in my region of origin.

At home in PL i tend just to do that type as needed or sometimes małosolny. Always without garlic or sugar.

vinegar

All picked/preserved food is carcinogenic. Vinegar is still delicious though. Chips are just not the same without plenty of it.

Disgusting and very unhealthy.

: Remember my dear child, one drop of vinegar kills two drops of blood!

Sad old lies.....

Couldn't agree more!

Nope! There is a draw - more of harmful sugar counterbalances less of harmful vinegar. Ha! Pure maths, darling. :):):)

Yes, you are. :):):)

You are wrong again, as you so often are.....
Sugar is bad for you, we all know that.
Vinegar has proven itself to be an effective deterrent to the detrimental effects of sugar.
You know nothing Pawian.

I use 25% vinegar concentrate (from Poland) as a biological weed killer. Works great.

Yes, once I also used it. It killed everything around, not only weeds. :):)

Yes, because you have to hit the weed.

Sorry, I don`t use weed. Smoking of any kind is too smelly for me.
