Sunflower seeds, or 'pipas' have been the favourite snack of the Spanish people for generations. Anyone who is Spanish or has immersed themselves in Spanish culture will need no introduction to "pipas". The bag contains large sunflower seeds that have simply been lightly toasted with sea salt. Pipas vary tremendously in both quality (and therefor price) and we have decided to contrate on Facundo's more premium product offering.
Our Facundo "Pipas" represent one of the most pre-eminent brands in Spain. Producing snacks since 1944 they really know their business. Packed and sealed for optimum freshness and shelf life.
The trick in eating them is to put one "pipa" vertically between your teeth, and with a sharp crack break open the shell and eat the sunflower seed. When you get good at it, you can get through each pipa every few seconds!

The best sunflower seeds ever. For someone who is quite addicted to pipas, they could understand what I mean. I love Facundo, but this new ones you have on stock now, are AMAZING! PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THEM!

If we have to be addicted to something, then maybe it's better to be addicted to something healthy - at least that's my excuse! Pipas Sunflower Seeds are healthy alright, but they're also nutty, salty, crisp and made for sharing. Although not *too* much sharing!
The large sunflower seeds are not very large.
Excellent service and a very hard to find product in the UK. Had a small issue with my order which was sorted the next day. Again excellent service and would definitely recommend.
