About the author

Originally from London, I moved to Poland to absorb as much of the culture as humanly posssible. Maybe the biggest influence on me has been the food and I credit my adopted babcia, (Polish for grandmother) Ania, with much of the information here. I lived in Zielona Gora and Szklarska Poreba which are in the west and south-west of Poland respectively.

Kubuś - more than just a carrot juice

Kubuś (kwuboosh) is different to any other carrot juice I have seen before and I became addicted to this. Aimed at kids with a bear on the front, I have been confused by the fact that the only other usage of this word is for a Polish armoured vehicle used during the war.
I have seen this now in ordinary shops in London (not just Polish shops) under the radically different marketing title of kubus. The flavours are in English on the exported bottles so I thankfully don't have to spend half an hour decoding the various fruit combos now!
By the way the banana flavour rules.
