Traveling is not only about admiring the sights, but also about immersing in the culture and tasting the local delicacies. And what’s the sweetest thing about visiting Poland? If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll find lots of things worth trying. Here’s our mouthwatering list. The classic Polish sweets also make great souvenirs to bring back from your trip to Poland.

Ptasie mleczko

The name of this foamy, fluffy filling covered in chocolate literally translates into ‘bird’s milk’ and is one of the most popular kinds of sweets in Poland and it is often bought as a souvenir. It was developed by the owner of the E. Wedel Company in 1936. The traditional ptasie mleczko is vanilla-flavored, but you can find many other, interesting flavor variations.

Delicje

Once you open your delicje, you’ll face a real dilemma: eat them nicely and politely, or bite the biscuit around the middle first and enjoy the jelly and chocolate later? The original delicje were orange-flavored, but nowadays you can buy other flavors as well, including cherry, apricot, raspberry and blueberry (the latter covered in white chocolate).
