In the hopes that my partner for this gift doesn't see this, and never mind if she does, are there restrictions on sending ingredients from Britain to the US? Not silly things like eggs and liquids, i mean like packets of powders, dry item kits with recipes, and boxed mixes, etc.

Its unclear if these can be sent, so i was wandering if anyone had the answer...

I've tried shipping some items from Canada to the US and I was told that any prepackaged item could not be sent into the US. If they find it they can confiscate the package, not just the item in question. I was also told that I could send homemade items, but with the way the postal system is I think they would be stale  Huh

Check out the USPS website--it lists all of the things that aren't allowed in most countries.

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

Someone sent me some Kool-Aid packets from the US, that's powdered. Depending on what you're sending, it should be okay. Just don't send flour or they might bust you for drug trafficking Tongue

actually coffee is more likely to be confiscated- the scent is so strong it can confuse drug sniffing dogs & thus drug trafficers used it for quite a while...I'd be more concerned with things meeting unhappy conditions en route, but if you seal it well maybe not?

Well plans have since changed, but i am sending over some completed boxed and sealed tea bags in a wishlist swap, so fingers crossed they dont get raided. Interesting though about the coffee!
