    I can’t remember ever seeing it to be honest. I’m not sure anyone on here will say ‘yes’ to your question, ‘cos if you get out to the resort and you’re unable to locate it / sold out, etc. then where will that leave you? In serious trouble with Mum I think!

    I’d pay for the extra weight, sorry….

    Thanks – you’re probably right! It’s not do much weight as liquid in cabin baggage.

    lyndsey there is no benecol but danone do an equivalent one called danacol,just looked at it and its exactly the same ingredients, you can get it in the larger spar supermarkets, different flavours too!

    Thanks, really helpful, Jude; do you know if there’s a large spar in playa blanca, I can’t remember which supermarket is which!

    Now been asked by my mum if she can buy lactulose over the counter at a pharmacy, as we can in the UK! Any pharmacists reading this?! Or do you know a man who does?!

    there is a fairly large spar on the main pedestrian walkway/shopping area next door to the vero moda /jack jones clothes shops, i’m sure they will have it, and yes to the lactulose question, its the same name and you can buy it over the counter!
    hope this sorts all the digestive problems out for you lol xx
    happy hols x
