SPAIN may be battling the financial crisis, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from Spaniards’ food bills.

The total amount that residents of 100 countries around the world spent on food at home, dining out, alcohol and tobacco was calculated by Euro Monitor International.

Spain spent an average of €5,160 per person in 2012, with €2,483 spent on food at home, €2,148 on restaurant meals and €529 on tobacco and alcohol.

The figures put Spain ninth on the list, with Switzerland, Norway and Australia taking the top three spots.
