Good to know

Beach Resort supermarkets are very convienient, but you have to expect that they will have higher prices ( 20-30% higher than out of resort ) due to their short opening season of just 5 months.

Most large(st) supermarkets in Menorca are located on 'Polignos' ( a commercial area located just on the edge of a town ). And there are many Spar and Mini Spars. San Crispin is a smaller co-operative chain but recommended where available

The biggest chain on the island is

Euroski SYP

British Goods and Brands

Imported brands are widely available in large and smaller resort supermarkets but expect to pay a lot more than in the UK. UK brand chocolate for 'addicts' in beach resorts is particularly expensive. German brands (milka) are much less.

Baby Goods

Global brands that are familiar in the UK maybe slightly different ( nantional tastes/legislation ) for local market. Baby food is often slightly different therefore bring your own if Baby is very particular. Also Spanish/German brands ( often significantly cheaper ) are mostly as good if not better.

Nappies : Dodot ( Pampers brand for Spain ) and often cheaper than imported Pampers

Food in Jars : Most commonly sold brands are Hero,Hipp,Nestle

Local Food Brands
