connah stowah

Sorry, just a little Bawstinonics slipped out. So the corner store near my house has a wide selection of Polish groceries (soup mixes, juices, cookies, etc.) along with locally made tortillas and Mexican staples. Psyche! I got some black currant nectar, and a carrot/apple/strawberry juice. They also have Vitner's chips, in most but not all of the worthwhile flavors. Heh.

Poles and soup packets--remember the connah stowahs in Poland? Knorr is as big over there as Campbells is here. There are hundreds of soup and sauce mixes (each with more MSG than the next) which Polish babkas incorporate into recipes in arcane and complex ways...so next time someone tells you that food in Eastern Europe is better because the ingredients are fresher and less processed, be sure to laugh in their faces.

I heart what you do here, foodnerd! I've passed the site on to the few foodies in my life, hope they dig it, too.
