Cocoa Powder

Help. Does anyone know where you can buy cocoa powder? Does one of the main shops sell it, ie Mercadona? I couldn't find it in local Aldo or Supersol.

Any ideas?

They have it in Marcadona bud as i am not in Spain at the moment i cannot tell you the actual brand name but it is the exact same product as we get in the UK.
I am wondering if you need it for cooking or as a drink?

It is for making cake type things. Brownies I am told.

Mercadona sell a 100% Cacao which I use for my chocolatey baking. It is in the aisle with the Cola Cao and milky drinks in a gold tin with a dark red square on the label which reads 'Cacao Puro en Polvo'.

Personally, I would use melted chocolate for brownies to get that moist squishy texture but you can add some powder for extra choccyness :D
