Poles are trying to make the situation caused by the pandemic more pleasant. Double-digit increases are recorded among others in the sale of wine or lubricants – writes wiadomoscihandlowe.pl. The website points out that the demand for condoms is falling.

As we read, NielsenIQ data show that last year the sales of food and chemical products grew strongly. Interestingly, the pandemic has increased Poles’ appetite for various kinds of pleasure. Thus the sales of wine (11 percent), olives (12 percent), moldy cheese (13 percent), bath lotions (12 percent), and scented candles increased.

Magdalena Piwkowska, trends & content development leader at the Nielsen agency, says that growths were also recorded in lube ( 15 percent) and stimulating products ( 15 percent) – vibrators and vibrating pads.
