Snapshots of Ukrainian Life, Part 6

Since it's the holiday season, I proudly bring you "Snapshots of Ukrainian Life: The Shopping Edition".

The best discovery yet- "kids" toilet paper! Marketing gimmick or for real?
(Cleanser from the States vs. cleanser from Ukraine.) You can get practically anything here.....for half the price!
Ukraine offers an astonishing variety of juices. The one on the left is "Peach-Papaya-Strawberry". The only thing I've never seen is plain old cranberry juice. I think you're supposed to buy berries and make it at home, boiling them on the stove. D and I tried that once but it didn't work out that well.

Teas are pretty creative too!
Which is stranger: a paddling cow or sour cream in a bag? (Not only milk!)
Manicures are big here. So is the 1980s.

    Try this one:
    It can be found in big supermarkets for sure and in smaller shops occasionally, like this (open 9:00..21:30):
