Default Cheese

Anyone know if you can bring back cheese from St. Marteen? They sell it in a wax enclosed "wheel". Any info. would be great.

My in-laws smuggle a huge wheel back every year. They put it in their suitcase in a round soft-sided cooler.

You really are not supposed to bring food or other agricultural products into the USA.

I found the answer to my own question by contacting the Government. Cheese is an "O.K." food as long as it is in its own waxed package. Meat, vegetables, fruits and plants are definately a no no.

Thanks everyone for your imput. Happy cruising!!

I believe - not completely sure - that foods that are in tins are legal.
