      1. Rita, you are just like my GF. With the difference that she loves bread with lard ( as do i , with paprika, salt and some onion rings or just wiith an appple πŸ˜› yummy, ) , but she hates cheeses like parmesan, blue, or any kind, pea soup, tea ( any kind of tea, she says it gives her a heartburn) or jello ( slow boiled pigskin, pigs feet , ears and pig tail πŸ˜› in it’s own juice which sollidifies and tastes heavenly with some lemon juice). So dear Rita, please try it, at least once, before you “ewww” it off πŸ˜› .

      2. oh, BTW, want a jar sent over via mail for a taste test? I bet Jingles would love it πŸ˜€ . And it’s a lot healthier and tastier used in cooking instead of sunflower oil. We make the lard by the traditional way, cutting pigs fat into small cubes, then slowly boiling down the fat on a wood fired stove, it takes about 6-8 hours to finish and it is delicious.

      1. Polish pickles, which are salty in taste, not common pickles that are sour (because of vinegar).
        And if you add to it a shot of ice-cold polish vodka…

    1. Ha ha, actually, it’s not trolling. One piece of bread with lard has more calories than any other consumable in the game , and from a striclty military point of view, it’s the best food ( keeps well, you metabolise it easy, and it gives you a boost comparable only to sugar). So mate, try it once, and tell us after that, who is realy trolled :P.

    1. dear friend, my grandpa lived ’til 84 with that stuff. My grandma is still well an active at 82 , and she eats bread with lard, smoked bakon ( altough it’s salted smoked pig fat with the skin ). trust me, they ate a much healthier food than we ever will. Just look at how much artificial stuff is on the package of what you eat every day, and tell someone bread with lard is not healthy.

        It’s not just white lard (alone) – it actually have to be prepared before: cooked with bacon (cut into small pieces), onion, garlic and spices. It’s also common to add fruits like apples or pears or plums (so it’s not that ‘fat’). Then poured into a pot and kept in a fridge – to be eaten with bread and pickles during rainy autumn or winter when it’s really cold outside πŸ˜‰
        Something like this:

        I just wonder why WG choosed this – nowadays it’s is not that common as it used to be in old days πŸ˜‰

  1. skivster says:

    You dont know whats good untill you taste this shit! Also it can’t be _JUST_ plain lard.
    It needs to be with onions, garlic and marjorine

    1. skivster says:

      As a matter of fact, yes. It was our traditional dish of our fathers, grandfathers and grand-grandfathers. Children born in the 80’s still ate this, and it was delicious. A lot of adults still like that.

  2. ioni2005 says:

    Actually it was quite popular in Eastern Europe… And not so bad either. It was eaten also by people that use to move around a lot (peasants) and not by people sitting in the front of the screen. πŸ™‚

    This is traditional food in Poland and it came from very poor part of polish society, Many people likes it, because during the time of socialism (1945-1989) when people didn’t have much good food, unless they lived in a village and grow it by themself. This simple pice of bread with lard was something to enjoy, something tasty. We are talking about war game and polish soldiers did not have much food so this was much much better than just piece of old bread. For me and many people from outside this food might souds disgusting and it probably is (I’m vegeterian living in Poland) but still this is a part of polish tradition. Same like pizza in Italy and Tortilla in Mexico this is poor people food (pizza and tortilla is of course much better). We have other traditional food in Poland like dumplings, but can you image soldiers making dough for dumplings (four + warm water),then stuffing (potatoes, cottage cheese, salt, pepper,optional with fried onion) in a tank? With such a poor society? I dont think so. Bread with lard was much simple thing to make, to enjoy and to convert it into energy to fight for their contry.
    Like the sound of it or not – if you will be in Poland try it. Unless you are a vegetarian like me, then try dumplings (called in Poland – russian dumplings).

    As a Pole I think it’s very fitting Polish dish. I know it appears as poor-man choice, and not as subtle like pierogi for example, but it’s exactly exactly what I imagine eating while sitting atop my faithful tank. Heck, I would eat that and then eat bread with butter and sugar sprinkled atop of it for dessert!

    1. SJ says:

      Horse is a friend, not a food for Poles, no one will ever eat a horse meat if it’s not a great hunger, siege, or some other extreme situation.

  5. jakub_czyli_ja says:

    And a pickled cucumber.

    In fact in semi-cold or cold climate, a shot of easy to digest fat is a great thing to warm the body.

    Thick slice of traditional bread with crispy crust covered with lard prepared with pork skin and onions is one of the best things in the world to eat. Yet, it has to be well prepared and served in right temperature – 15-20 degrees would be best i think, before it starts melting and it becomes just an oil.
    It’s quice nourishing and, according to wikipedia, not as bad for your health as one could think πŸ™‚
    In restaurants it is served as a starter for soups (Ε»urek!) and main dish. I guess you could compare it to bread with olive oil served in italy and spain

  7. Aslain says:

    it’s far from Eww…. Rita πŸ™‚ as a Polish I eat that a lot in 80’s, it is actualy tasting good, add some salt and chive and you are good.

  8. mike t says:

    Seems fair enough on the face of it after all Russian tanks get ‘extra rations’ as most Russians were poor peasants without any food and in the army at least they got fed something better – so all in all its probably pretty accurate for back in the bad old days

  9. Rita, every country have a dish that is completly inedible for other nations, and this is one from poland πŸ˜€ we have quite a lot of these, for example “chopped cabbage that has been pickled in brine” XD

  11. Shrike58 says:

    My father is of Hungarian/Slovak descent and he ate stuff like this. He and brothers also ate potato chips with butter! It’s no wonder he had quad bypass back in ’84; and I give thanks that I still have him in my life.

  12. exocet6951 says:

    Better than having food ration tickets :v

    Like the old joke goes (when the USSR still existed, and is a poignant joke at the expense of the Soviet Union, not Poles themselves) : “How do you make a Polish sandwich? You put a ham ration ticket between two bread ration tickets.”

  13. fighting_falcon93 says:

    Really WG? Other nations get stuff like chocolate, buchty, pudding, croissant, and then you give Poland a piece of bread? Why not give Poland Makowiec, it’s also very popular?

  14. BattleBudgie says:

    What? Hungarians eat it for hundreds of years as well, and it’s great. A bit of salt on it, onions and/or tomatoe slices, and there you go. You should try it sometime πŸ˜‰

  15. S the K says:

    And I thought the Soviet crews had it rough. The Soviets’ performance-enhancing consumable is an extra C-ration. The Japanese have the right idea in that their performance-enhancing consumable is sushi.

  16. Ew, really? Next time you gonna be like ‘oh I’m too good for horse sausages’ and ‘liver is disgusting’, like mericans are :v Lard is great with salt, paprika, and onions, as others said. I still love it, it’s definitely not a poor man’s food either, beats margarine any day of the week πŸ˜›

  17. marshal89 says:

    Tastes not as bad as it sounds. My grandpa likes it really much.

    and dont forget:
    “Fettbemme fressen verboden! Mach die Glotzen off” (Its a german thing)

      1. Dowbor says:

        Ok my mistake. Sorry. I was confused also by this SilentStalker abbreviation, and also by many malicious comments under the “polish” topics, like “create server only for polish players” or “LoL! That’s why I love WG! Trolling siemkas at it’s finest! GG WG!”. I know that many polish tomatoes are morons without personal manners but that kind of hateful comments unfortunately are very popular here.

        My apologize Rita.

    1. buddy, she doesn’t dislike polish people, she just finds the proposed consumable wierd. She is from Portugal, and grew up on a different cussine than others ( like us, east europeans). Give her the bennefit of a doubt and a biiig slice of freshly baked bread, still steaming , with lard, paprika an salt sprinkled on top, topped with sliced onion and I am sure she’ll love it after the 2nd bite πŸ˜› . As a blogger and community contributor she is one of the most balanced people I know, second maybe only to QBB. What she could be frustrated of, are bad players with over 10k games no mater the nationality , but I bet we were all there once or twice.

      1. Dowbor says:

        Not only once or twice. In game are many morons without personal manners πŸ˜‰ thank you for explanation.

  18. Ivan Dimitrov says:

    I think WG is taking the piss on the Polish. They could have used “pierogi” or “schabowy” or anything else. But no they chose the most peasant food available which will be disgusting for the people who have not tried it.

  19. HmanSA says:

    I’m from South Africa and I used to eat this at my granny’s house. She baked fresh bread then we spread the lard on and sprinkle BBQ spice on it and it was delicious. Haven’t eaten it in many years.

  20. unable2pwn says:

    Interesting how this would be an insult for some countries and a delicacy in others. I still have to wonder if it wasn’t meant as a sly insult to Poland tho

  21. ammarmar says:

    This is a very strange choice for PL food. The most popular “military” dish in Poland is “grochΓ³wka” – pea soup. Whenever soldiers show up on some kind of event, parade or show, they often bring one of their field kitches and serve “the true military pea soup” to the crowd πŸ™‚

    1. Anonymous says:

      Well, most of the premium foods are easy to make “snacks”, rations or sweets. So grochowka as full dish isn’t optimal choice. Take into account that canned pork fat is used even now as one of the crisis rations in polish army, besides the “modern” MRE-like shit

  22. iceshapedgod says:

    Mhew? You haven’t eat the real traditional Polish lard then Rita. Althou I’d prefer to have kielbasa as in-game consumable πŸ˜›
