    I'v tried to keep the thread title general so others can use it...because we all know how often we need to procure foreign snacks.

    Basically my gf went to Spain and fell in love with Estrellas (biscuits) ... I really want to get her some here (England) but I have never seen them anywhere, nor can I find them online. Has anyone any idea how I could get hold of them?

    Or, longer shot, if anyone happens to be in/going to Spain (or wherever else you can get them from), I don't suppose you could send me some?! ha, of course I'd pay for them/postage/you could lie to me about the price for a profit...

    I'm really surprised they can't be found on the internet (by me at least).

    Thanks for that idea...just tried it, but it doesn't look like a very active place at all, but we shall see. I'm really struggling to think of how to get hold of them...I thought it would be simple..

    Searching for "Lu galletas estrellas Príncipe" seems to yield decent results. Unfortunately I only found one site that specialised in international sales and it's exclusively for diplomats by the looks of it :S

    Ahh thanks you Mr Brett.

    ...and to Janyamik!

    With some help from someone great on EG es, I have found the biscuits:

    They aren't the one in the big picture but the ones on the right hand side by the writing.

    She got them in Tenerife, but is sure that you can get them in other places (from what experience, I don't know)

    Steady Progress :D
