    I take butter and mature cheddar and always teabags. I also take some chocolate bars just to keep me going - you can't beat Cadbury's ( I would only take teabags for a 2 week holiday but as we go for longer I take the other bits)

    Coming back is basically the same as going out - you can't bring home any meat or dairy products, and fruit or vegetables. There are plant restrictions too but I can't see you wanting to bring home a tree.

    And also animal product restrictions apply so no gator skins or anything.

    On our last couple of trips there have been sniffer dogs around the baggage claim area which are trained apparently to detect certain foodstuffs.

    Coming into the US pay attention to what Dawn says. She is right on the button.
