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.

Flavours:


carrot - apple - orange
banana - peach - apple
carrot - peach - apple
carrot - pear - apple
carrot - strawberry
carrot juice
multivitamin

We also have this juice in Romania, only here it's called Tedi:

I like its taste, but the TV commercials are annoying as hell.

Thanks Anna for comment, i wonder then from which country this carrot juice has originated...anyone know?

I believe it's Polish (in Germany it's sold as Kubus without the Polish lettering)

btw Kubuś is a common Polish name :)

My little son's name is Jacob and we call him Kubus.It's like Jakie.

Also, Kubus is a name for Winnie the Pooh in some Polish translations as far as I can tell.

Came across your blog looking for a Kubus juice t-shirt. I'm a born-and-bred Londoner, but have to agree with you, that stuff is addictive!

Just tried some of the Carrot-apple-peach without knowing what it was. I found it far too sweet for my tastes

as far as budyń is concerned ( step 3) you have to take the boiling milk from fire and then put the mixture into hot milk. then once again put it on fire and make it boiling. greetings from Poland!

We adore Kubus in our house! It's a brilliant idea, before Jessica Seinfeld's book about hiding vegetables, my mother always did the same thing.

Na razie...

I love the kubus carrot juice on it's own.
Though the others I've tried are all tasty too.
I get a crate delivered from amazon every couple of months here in UK.
