Perfect Edible Souvenirs From Poland!

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

Where to find the best food souvenirs in Poland?

Are you looking for great tasting, high-quality food products to bring back from Poland? One of the nice things about buying Polish food gifts is that they’re always appreciated! In Poland, there’s a vast range of branded food products of high quality. You can find them in Polish culinary stores, which are located not only in Warsaw but also in other major Polish cities. These shops sell food such as sweets, liquors or famous Polish sausages. All products are sold in traditional, beautiful wrappings, which makes them even more attractive.

Poland Culinary Vacation visiting – E. Wedel Staroświecki Sklep

The most famous brand is Poland’s largest and oldest confectionery company E.Wedel . The company has gained recognition not only in Poland, but also abroad. There are many varieties of chocolates  produced by E. Wedel but its best brands are: Ptasie Mleczko, Torcik Wedlowski or Mieszanka Wedlowska. Although Wedel products are sold in every supermarket in Poland, the company has its own unique, chocolate shops and lounges. In Warsaw it is Staroświecki Sklep often visited by tourists. But, the lounges can be found throughout Poland in shopping malls and market squares. The tradition of Polish lounges is quite old but today they are real chocolate-lovers attractions.  While there, you may taste delicious chocolate desserts, drinks made with white, milk or dark chocolate. To find out more about the lounges visit Wedel’s lounges website.

In Krakow (Cracow), you can find a place for lovers of real chocolate – Lwowska Manufaktura Czekolady (Manufacture of chocolate), located on Szweska street. It’s a place where chocolate is not only sold, but it’s also made right in front of you, step-by-step!

To taste more traditional Polish products, you must visit a very elegant and popular culinary store, Krakowski Kredens  (Kraków Pantry). This high quality brand sells traditional Polish food.  Krakowski Kredens products are wrapped elegantly, and can be found in main Polish cities. The range of products varies from sausages and honeys to sweets and liquors. If you need some souvenirs you can either choose from delicious, elegant foods or you may also buy beautiful porcelain.

Since Poland is famous for its tasty, high-quality cold-cuts and sausages you should try terrine of hare or loin of pork in Skarby Smakuanother Polish culinary store. Unfortunately, the stores are located only in Warsaw. However, there’s a possibility to order all Skarby Smaku products online.

All kinds of quality preserves, candies, syrups are also available at Produkty Benedyktynskie, Benedicite. The stores purchase not only foods but also hand-made craft products or cosmetics made of natural ingredients. The items are beautifully wrapped and may be sold as  great gifts. Benedicite’s main store is located in Kraków but there are three other locations in Warsaw.

In Poland, you can also find nice gifts for cheese-lovers. For example, a traditional smoked sheep cheese called Oscypek, you can buy in Zakopane (in the mountains in the south of Poland).

Oscypek is smoked-dried, so you don’t have to be afraid of your journey. You can easily bring it home for your family and friends. Oscypek has a little bit salty and original taste. You should try it!

Maybe would you like to buy some Polish vodkas, meads or wines? For example, Żubrówka – Bison grass vodka – makes a nice gift. It can be served in shot glasses or as a cocktail drink mixed with apple juice. You can find Żubrówka in every supermarket, grocery store and liquor store around Poland.
