    There is an ICELAND up by Benidorm palace.. Not sure on bacon quality but would assume you can get it..
    Nearly all the bars have "english bacon" so would imagine some shops will..
    It's the one thing we never look for when we are there, we either have it with us in the van or if at our apartment we eat out.

    Of course you can do you think a place in Spain with more English than England would not cater for there breakfasts. :roflmto:

    most lidl sell uk packed bacon these days in spain . well certainly on the med coast . its not so common in the inland ones or along the asturian /cantarbria coast.
    used to be difficult to find but last 5-6yrs its got very easy.

    there is alot of bacon that comes fron denmark in uk . but there are also alot of factories owned by danepac /tulip etc in uk.
    i know i have delivered thousands of tons of bacon from bacon packing factories in cornwall. to all over uk . not to the shops but the big supermarket fridge warehouses . http://www.tulipltd.co.uk/about-us/our-history

    Hardly worth buying it though when you can get a mega breakfast for €2.75 virtually everywhere Not worth the hassle in cooking

    Just returned from 3 months in the Benidorm area and has been mentioned, Iceland near the Palace stocks a fair range of British foods including "Hollands Pies" made in in the Rossendale Valley.
