THINGS WHICH YOU WILL MISS OUTSIDE KAZAKHSTAN

We all know that products such as Nutella, Lays, Snickers etc. are easily available everywhere. But, there are few things which are hard to find outside your home country. Besides home-made traditional Kazakh dishes like kazy, baursaks, WE have made a list of products that you won’t find very frequently outside Kazakhstan, or outside erstwhile soviet states.


Almost all the kids and the teenagers from post-soviet countries remember getting up in the morning to go to the kindergarten, and eating buckwheat or semolina with milk. While thinking of it, you will feel the nostalgia for the past — the days of carefree childhood.

In some countries, for example in Poland, it would be very difficult to find juicy and delicious horse or beef meat. Locals don’t pay too much attention to this product as in Kazakhstan.

Most Kazakhstanis say that the taste of the tea in the country they are living differs from that of Kazakhstan. Most of them miss hot, strong tea and nice tea. In many countries, tea is not served with milk, and sometimes, locals make too weak tea. Well-known brand of tea on Kazakhstan are “Piala” and “Assam Tea”.

Another thing which is pretty famous in Kazakhstan, but most likely to be unknown abroad is condensed milk (sgushenka in Russian language) which is a cow-milk product without water and, includes sugar. It is not as liquid as milk, and it is very sweet, so that you can eat it with bread or add to your tea or coffee instead of sugar. Sometimes, it could be a herculean task to find dairy products such as kefir and sour cream. Some of us remember, in our childhood days or even now, going to aul (countryside) to grandparents or parents and their making really fresh sour cream once they milked the cow. Once it is ready, all family members gather around the dining table to try it with bread and tea.

Kazakhstan is known for a dark chocolate named after the country — Kazakhstan — which is manufactured by a big chocolate factory “Rakhat”. Most of us going to a new country take at least one chocolate bar along with us to give it to our foreign friends, or to Kazakhstani friends already living abroad. Also, it is tough to find “Rakhat” or “Kazakhstan” chocolate bars outside Kazakhstan because they are not as popular as “Alpen Gold” or “Nestle” in those countries.

Speaking about sweet treats for your mouth, there are some products which are known to almost everyone in CIS-countries but are likely to be unknown to people in the USA, France or the UK. WE are talking about “zefir” and “pryanik”. Zefir is close to marshmallows but still it is slightly different. In Kazakhstan, for example, you can find zefir with different colors: pink, yellow, violet, white, etc.

And pryanik or parkin is made with special pastry with different toppings as honey, raison, nuts, fruit jam, succade, and have various shapes and colors. Its peculiarity is a special icing-sugar.

We found another thing which is unusual for some countries — pickled cucumbers and tomatoes. You can find pickled cornichons but it would be hard to find pickles mixed with tomatoes and different greeneries such as parsley, dill and garlic.

Usually, people prepare such pickles in a three-litter jar filled with water, salt and vinegar in Kazakhstan.

The last thing that WE have managed to remember at this time is “varenie” — mostly eaten with tea, — very similar to jam but also definitely different from common jam available in any store. Jam — that is “varenie” in Russia and Kazakhstan is more liquid, and also contains pieces of berries fruits.

Do let us know from your experience what other products that you find only in Kazakhstan and you had to live without them in your stay in another country.

WE want to thank Akerke Dinzhumanova,Eugenia Didik and Ruslam Evniyev for their help in writing the article.
