Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually from what I've heard from my parents, there was none. I was lucky enough to be born just 5 years before communism collapsed and don't remeber much. The only thing that's clear in my mind is how I loved bananas and oranges, and they never sold any, only for New Year. My father once went to Hungary and when he returned, he brought me two bananas, but by the time he was home, they had already gotten rotten. Sorry for going offtopic, I'm sure everyone from the Eastern bloc can share similar, if not worse, experience.
