WHAT TO BUY IN BARCELONA AS SOUVENIRS IF YOU ARE A FOOD LOVER?
Spanish food items make great gifts for foodies. If you don’t want to get anyone the kind of souvenirs that are going to end up gathering dust on a shelf at your friends’ house, we’ve prepared for you a list of Spanish foods that guarantee a successful gift.
Here are our top suggestions as Spanish gifts for foodies:
Wines and liquors
If your friends have a sweet tooth, you won’t have much trouble deciding what to buy in Barcelona as souvenir for them. Go straight for Turrón (Christmas nougat).
Meat products should make any list of Spanish food items, specially Spanish ham. Make sure to choose Jamón de jabugo (the highest quality of Spanish cured ham) rather than the lower quality serrano. You might want to try other pork sausages such as salchichón, langoniza, fuet… If vacuum packed, you have less possibilities of getting in trouble at customs (but remember that in some countries or states importing meat might not be allowed at all – check always first).
Olive oil and olives
Spices also make unique gifts for foodies. The most famous ones are saffron, and pimentón de la Vera (Spanish paprika – either smoked or hot spicy). A pot of Mediterranean seasoning including herbs such as thyme and rosemary can also be a very original treat.
