Enjoy the quintessential snack served in cafés and bars across Spain. These Spanish breadsticks are shaped like miniature crunchy loaves of bread and are a favorite across the country. Picos breadsticks pair with just about any fare or beverage—from bowls of plump olives or savory soup to beer, wine and soda.
Crumble a few over salads to add a flavorful crunch or dip them in tapenades for a tasty treat. Munch on picos during cocktail hour or serve them as an appetizer alongside pâté, cheese or cold meats at your next gathering.
La Chinata picos are distinguished by the premium extra virgin olive oil used in their creation, making them favorites as croutons for gazpacho or cream soups. The olive oil is gleaned from olives in the region of Sierra de Gata, in the northeast of the province of Cáceres. Harvesters of this exceptional fruit are careful to collect only the healthiest, most pristine olives that have reached the optimal point of maturity.
La Chinata is a nearly century-old, family-owned business that began by producing extra virgin olive oil based on tradition and quality. The company has since grown to incorporate additional gourmet products into its repertoire, becoming the thriving Spanish business that it is today.
