I went to a different grocery store than usual, they have an 'ethnic' food aisle. I was expecting to see the usual kosher, Chinese, Mexican stuff but instead it was full of stuff imported from the Balkans. :) Most of it was from Bosnia & Herzegovina, and I believe the store is owned by Bosnians. The only Hungarian thing they had was paprika. But they did have 'Bosnian style coffee' (I'm guessing it is like Turkish coffee?) Serbian style bacon, Slovenian horseradish, pickled eggplant :sick, ajvar, and many boxes of Bulgarian goat cheese :suspect. But I'm kinda wimpy, so I just bought some Croatian cocoa and Bosnian minty tea. But I will be trying some of the other stuff too. :)

Look what else I found to add authentic ambiance to my Croatian cocoa-drinking experience. :D

Well, anything you find produced by Croatia's KRAS is great.
A friend of mine got a big package of KRAS sweets from his aunt in Croatia,
and we spent the whole day reminiscing, and we ate 5kg of chocolate :D

Also, I'd recommend buying EUROCREM, PLAZMA keks etc.

Oh, and Paprika is NOT Hungarian :P It's clearly a Slavic vegetable :D

You damned Yugo-nostalgic :P

We have 'Kras' products in our stores, as well as (radioactive) Fructal juices.
Don't you have Plazma? Wanna trade :D

I have heard about radioactive Fructal juices, but it sounds to me like a hoax. Besides you will have to blame the Slovenians for that. :D

Also I don't think we have Plazma cookies here. Hopefully in the future. :)
