Consisting of dark chocolate-covered wafers, Prince Polo has been one of Poland's most popular candy bars since the 1950s. After Kraft purchased the brand in 1993, several more varieties were introduced, including milk chocolate...
...coconut, and hazelnut. It can be best described as similar to a fatter and wider Kit-Kat.
A dark or milk chocolate bar filled with a creamy, slightly alcoholic filling, kind of like a boozy Sky Bar. These ones are cherry, toffee...

Solidarność (Solidarity) is also a Polish trade union that played a major role in the fall of communism during the 1980s. (Though I wasn't able to find a link between the trade union, which was founded in a Gdańsk shipyard, and the confectioner, which is based in Lublin.)
