ATX - ATL - Rome, Customs?

alisonrd | May 19, 2009 06:45 PM

On Monday I will be flying from Austin, TX through Atlanta to Rome, Italy. I've read the U.S. customs website and tips from the APHIS website but I am still worried about specific food items. The group leader recommended we bring comfort food since the stores will be closed by the time we get there.

I was considering bringing (ALL UNOPENED and PACKED IN CHECKED LUGGAGE)
-Peanut butter
-Blackberry or Grape jam (would the fact that it has seeds in it be a problem?)
-a box of Kraft Mac n Cheese
-OR Easy Mac
-Trail mix (nuts, dried berries, chocolate)
-Lindt chocolate truffles
-Other candy
I'll be there for half the summer, hence the long list. :)

I am concerned about bringing those things to Italy but I am also concerned about bring chocolate back to the U.S. Has anyone had experience with these food items specifically, these airports or Italian customs in general?

Thank you!!
