Polish carrot crisps
« on: February 05, 2013, 01:02:05 pm »
Just discovered these in my local Polish supermarket:



Surprisingly good and not too salty - highly recommended.

Paprika flavoured!

Right weird bunch, them Polaks, beetroot soup et al  :sick:.
But these sound like they might actually be alright.
Polak processed food has a habit of ending up seriously 'I'm-not-putting-that-in-my-mouth' ish.
Just look at their confectionery!
But these sound like they might actually be ok  :thumbsup:
Likin' the paprika content.

I wonder how much horse DNA is in those?
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Waitrose do similar- and much cheaper than 89P for 20 grams.

Our local Tesco has a large Polish section.  It's full of Mister Sheen and furniture wax.  Those people are crazy about shiny furniture aren't they?

That's the second comment combining reference to Polish people and cleaning I've seeen on the forum in  the last couple of days. Maybe I'm having a sense of humour failure in seeing it as racism of a sort.  :-\

I think M&S do/did vegetable crisps too.

I don't recall ever seeing anything like that in Poland - I suspect it's probably a taste introduced from Britain!
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

Strictly speaking, a heteronym: Polish the people is pronounced Pow-lish and polish as in floor-polish is pronounced pollish.

You are right. I had a feeling I wasn't quite correct even as I posted. But at least it's not a homophone. Nothing wrong with homophones of course. Some of my best friends etc etc. (copyright c1976)

Ask if they have Chirupki (puffed corn things, tasty and no fat!)
chrupki are to monster munch what delicje are to jaffa cakes - the same but in more varieties!

OT-ish, as today is Fat Thursday, it's the day to get doughnuts - with jam, custard or chocolate filling, or with icing, sugar, chocolate or orange peel topping, etc - from your Polskish sklep.

And Tesco.  I enjoyed them, but the novelty went off pretty quickly.  I'll try some from a Polish shop, though.
