Sorry in advance for the very random question but we love a good homemade roast on a Sunday but can’t seem to find any gravy. Bisto Best is the usual but happy with any. Anyone recommend a supermarket?

Overseas at Cabo Riog sell Bisto Best, so I imagine the Torrevieja store also sells it.

Someone may know other supermarkets which sell it, Mercadona definitely dont sell it.

Dialprix sell a variety of UK brands of gravy including OXO cubes but I can't remember seeing Bisto.......

I agree Overseas Supermarket is your best bet.

Hi 

Your location says Santa Pola, so your nearest Overseas/Iceland is at San Fulgencio.

Cheers

Nearest supermarket to you that sells Bisto is Dial Prix in Gran Alacant, also a small English shop called Quicksave, sells most English products.

We have found bisto in the Santa Pola Carrefour . Last aisle. Look hard. Sometimes it’s hidden or out of stock

Hi,

just a thought, but talking about Gravy, we are Santa Poleros, coming over on 12th September for a month in our wee bolthole, so if we can be of any assistance with any other smallish tasty treats that can be legally carried in cabin luggage, just ask.

cheers
