What should I bring back from the U.S. to Poland?

What are the everyday things that are more expensive in Poland or just unavailable? When I am in Warsaw I think of many things I wish I had from the U.S. but now that I am here I am drawing a blank. Any ideas?

Anything and everything you can fit in your luggage. Poland still needs time to catch up to the US in terms of shopping/products.

I always bring clothing with me because polish clothing is expensive as hell and of p.iss poor quality.

How about a Stratocaster.. or one of our fat women. No one will notice as we have many.

You can bring a box of Celestial Seasonings. A nice hot cup of tea hits the spot on a cold, blustery, winter's evening.

Actually, he is right and his post was hilarious.
Besides, is being ridiculously fat a cultural diversity? I thought it's actually a medically recognized mental and physical disability?

No , young squire.. but I do have it for you. Airing your personal problems to any half wit around the world who is in between masturbating to prno.. that screams sagacity to me.

masturbating to prn

keep doing what your doing .. you make this to easy ... but when your dissing my wife make sure she's not fat like you implied she is by eating all the food at dinner ... ass.hole ... Christmas this is my wife ... I sorry you can't get with a female like that but that's your problem now isn't it ...

.. lol

Probably not but I can find a couple of internet wives.. just as you've done. If she's really your wife.. get her to hold up a sign that says "Hello PF's" or something to that effect. Being the internet guru you claim to be it should not be a problem..

well you'll have to wait till the morning ... My FAT wife as you implied is sleeping ... but I go with it ... How about "wish you had some of thing PF" will that get you to blow ... It seems like our an old man as you put that I'm

young squire

you get off looking at younger females ... wish you wore my age ... sucks to be you old fart ... hope that internet pûrn help to heal that most have for younger women ...

great thread.

hate to break it to you man but there are very few americans on this board to advise you which is quite obvious considering all you've gotten so far is cheesy slap-stick humor and ridiculous suggestions.

if you want my advice, save as much money as you can while you're in poland and do all your clothes shopping in the USA. selection, quality and prices are WAY better in the USA. I've been here 4 years now and always wait till I am visiting home to do my shopping. as far as clothing, i can't really give you specific suggestions because it would be better to just say "all clothing".

food is always a big one as well. Bisquick pancake mix and syrup is always on my list, although heavy i always take back a few cans of soda, rice, nature valley bars, BBQ sauce, ziploc bags, Listerine, mac and cheese, just to name a few.

mac and cheese

....

Come on Fuzzy, you eat that crap? :P

I'd say that advice is good for living in any European country, not just Poland. When it was $2 to 1 pound, New York was rammed full of Brits!

ziploc bags

Whatever about preferences for sauces etc, surely you can get ziplocs in Poland?

And why bring rice ? ?

I've never seen Ziplocs in Warsaw stores, and I've looked for them.

Bring back a bottle of cheap aspirin if you take it, they're 8zl for 10 tabs here, 6zl for 200 tabs in the states. Grape jelly if you miss it, I can't find that here either. Cheddar cheese is something I always bring back, the Irish cheddar available here just isn't the same (and is priced around the equivalent of $9/lb). I've also never been able to find Rice Krispies here in Wawa. You can find most things at Kuchnia Swiata, but they don't have much selection, so if you're into BBQ sauce bring some of that back too. And ditto on the clothing... especially jeans. Levis are a lot cheaper in the states.

Bisquick pancake mix

Oh come on. It's flour, baking powder, and some oil.

Ralph Lauren T shirts, jackets, trousers, LaCoste T shirts, loads of pairs of Nike trainers (sneakers US), Levis jeans. I hate the trainers in Poland - absolutely hate them

That's what i generally buy in the US.

With regard to the UK, Bisto gravy powder, decent T Bags, Walls pork sausages, Branstons pickle..

Here's what I bought...

Couple of books, specialty stuff on aviation
Clothes
rifle scope (my self bought Christmas present)
couple of boxes of honey nut cheerios
headset for the plane
new bulb for the projector
as much beer as I can stuff in my luggage
no fog stick-on plastic mirror for the shower (kinky perversions and shaving in the shower!)
some local "secret" dry rub and dried peppers
various bags of candy that people have gotten addicted to over the years

when it's -15 C outside and there's nothing to eat at home, it comes in handy.

I've never seen them. in fact, as I'm packing and getting rid of a lot of things leading up to my departure on thursday, my wife gave our leftover ziplocs to a few of her polish friends, they told her they couldn't find them here either.

white rice, sure. poland has it. other cool kinds of rice i used to eat in america? no.

Yes, yes...yes! Especially freezer bags. I'll be stocking up. They've got bisquick at Kuchnia Swiat some times. I picked up a box a while back, didn't get around to using it though :(

something else: contact lense solution. in the USA, a 16 oz. bottle (473ml) runs around $8, or 24zl. In Poland, it's double.

also, cooking spray. I got tired of cooking everything in butter and oil and feeling my arteries clogging with every forkfull, now i use Berkley & Jensen cooking spray, virtually zero calories, works like a charm, no sticking to the pan. one large can lasts for months and months.

Reese's PB cups. At walmart you can get a package of 8 for $1.00.

BUTTERFINGER!

In the international store in Renoma in Wroclaw, BabyRuth is 7zl.

There's a new Butterfinger that is lighter with crispy wafers inside. It doesn't get stuck in the molars as much as the original. Try to take some of those. You can find them at some Wal Mart super centers though not all :)
