Back in 2009, I travelled from SAN to New Mexico and wanted to bring Krispy Kreme jelly-filled doughnuts for a friend. My coworker told me airport security might confiscate them since they contain jelly. So, I decided to email SAN airport (half-serious, half-curious/amused):

I have a question re food items. I am planning to bring donuts (some are jelly-filled) to a friend. May I take this with me as carry-on or do I have to check it in?

THEIR RESPONSE (rcd the following day):
Thank you for your recent e-mail correspondence. Donuts, in a reasonable quantity, are allowed through security.
> I hope this information is of assistance to you.
> Thank you for your interest in San Diego International Airport, operated by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.
> Sincerely,
> Customer Service
> San Diego International Airport
> [email protected]

I printed the email anticipating a challenge from airport security (didn't try to hide it or anything). Silly, I know, but I learned two things: 1. It doesn't hurt to ask. 2. Not all airport personnel have lost their common sense.

Few years ago, passing thru O'Hare's duty-free, we bought my dad a nice, expensive box of those liquor-filled chocolate "bottles" from Denmark. When going thru security in Frankfurt the lady (who spoke only German) took out the box and nonchalantly placed it in the trash bin. I got really mad. Mad enough to tell her "Oh, so this is to bring home to your family, ha?" (I am still sure those security agents leave work with bags full of goodies...)...

...She was mad and called the policeman standing there. He was smart enough (and speaking English) to suggest we open the box and split those bottles among the 3 of us. We followed the advice, even though the beautiful (though empty) box ended up in the trash. He later told me he just got back from Paris and how they are so much more strict, to a point of being irrational there at CDG...

I have carried cannoli filling, in the separated containers from both Mike's and Modern, thru BOS security with no problem.

Also - ICE IS ALLOWED. It was actually TSA that told me that. As long as water is frozen, it's ok. I make anything questionable easily accessible when going through...i.e. any lunchpails unzipped, small scissors out of bag, etc, so they can inspect w/out taking more time than necessary. I think everyone appreciates that, TSA as well as those in line.
