If you're in your local supermarket ,with Polish food aisle (any supermarket) haha...

Treat yourself to Winiary Majonez.

2 400g jars for £2 .

You WILL thank me later.its awesome and blows other well known brands out of the water imo.

A lot of the Polish things are very good - sausages, milk products, pickles such as gherkins, sauerkraut( it can be very close or identical to German stuff which I like "strangely enough being born German haha"). Love to go to supermarkets where you get the Polish aisles - there are a few on the way home from Glasgow to Dunblane which are very well stocked!

I used to enjoy stocking up on Tyskie lager from the Polish aisle. Then it became more popular and they moved it next to the other beer and bumped up the price.

The Poles only export (or we only import) the crap beers IMO. I was seeing a woman from Warsaw for a while so spending a good while over there, and the beer and general food tbh was brilliant and for me nice and cheap, even in Warsaw but especially so when we headed out into the country.

The only downer for me was that they do like to pickle pretty much everything and I'm not a fan of anything pickled.

> Winiary Majonez

I bought some of their garlic mayonnaise, which was pretty good. My local Sainsbury's seem to have decided no-one wants their 'Best' garlic mayo... Or any garlic mayo, come to that.

I recalled that Winiary were part of a multinational. A quick google says it's Nestle.

Polish Mayonnaise - I thought is was a euphemism.

Kabanos (smoky thin dry sausage), and their strong beers are my favourite - Warka Strong for preference. They seem to make an 8% beer that isn't sickly. Got to be a good thing.

Never seen them in the UK, but kotlet mielony (I think) is really good. It's basically a home made burger.

All mayo other than Hellmans tastes like salad cream to me.

Interested to try this one, but both Polish shops in towns closed after a year or so.

Lots of Mayo is as good a Heinz.
Now, if you'd said Hellman's, then that would be some thing to live up to!

I've also been buying the 'Thomy' mayonnaise in tubes when it was in the 'world food' section of Sainsburys. Also a Nestle brand I think but didn't notice until I'd stockpiled loads. Also blows other well known brands out of the water IMO

Sainsburys own brand French mayonnaise better, cheaper.

The tube is much more practical than other container types, it tends to keep longer because so little gets exposed to the air.

I'm working my way (rapidly) through a giant jar of Polish gherkins and some of their other food is great, not knowing what most of it is I simply buy and hope for the best usually great but they do like salt a bit too much for me.
I'll certainly give the mayo a try.

But best of all is some of their lumps of cheap, garlicky sausage, absolutely brilliant bait for fishing, chub and barbel love it and I always have some in the freezer.
