So did the cheese.**
More in a couple of days when I'm over my jetlag.
**Totally above-board and legal, people. In the end, I declared it on the customs form, they asked what it was, I told them, "a cheese..." and before I could even get to the bit about "vacuum-sealed, cured/hard, for personal consumption..." they waved me through.
Welcome back! See you in a (eek!) couple weeks!
Congrats on smuggling the cheese. I'm still pissed off about the proscuitto that I was foolishly honest about upon a return from Italy 3 years ago. It took all of my willpower not to scream at the customs agents, "there's no such thing as MAD PIG DISEASE, dumba$$es!"
Mmmmmm.... illegal cheese. Welcome back with your booty!
No, no people! The cheese was brought in legal, fully declared on the customs form. They asked me what the food was, i told them (okay, so I omitted the part about it being unpasteurized), and they waved me through. Whole thing took about 20 seconds.
Meat, however, will never get through. Doesn't concern me, as a vegetarian, but you *can* bring in cheese for personal consumption, so long as it's sealed and cured (so no brie, sorry).
If you do not post a picture of the cheese--including a freshly cut section view--then your blog totally sucks. This is not a joke.
CPP, I never claimed my blog didn't suck. So you can't hurt me.
(And the cheese is a gift, so I won't be cutting it open. And the language on the label would give a clue as to my undisclosed location, so no photo -- for security reasons, you understand.)
Welcome back! And I'm glad the cheese got through...
Welcome back! Indeed, they have bigger fish to fry than cheese - next time we're in Holland, I'll go ahead and declare the mounds of aged gouda we bring back.
Don't even think of bringing that cheese into Arizona.
