Can I bring cookies back home from NZ?

Hi guys.

This may be a weird question, but I'm going to do some xmas shopping over here in Wellington, New Zealand. I'm going to be here till the half of December. My grandma loves chocolate and they're very traditional with cookies and tea over here...

SO, my question is, because I can't find it online: Can I bring a few packs of cookies with me when I go back to Europe? Does someone know?

I really don't know if you can take vacuum packed chocolate in you checked luggage.

Please helpt me out!

Majbritt you need to tell us where back home is. It is the country you want to take them into that will determine what cannot be taken in.

I have taken liccorice, biscuits, tea leaves and chocolate into the UK if that helps.

Chocolate in checked luggage is generally ok but be aware that if you have a lot, it is heavy.

Main thing though is first check the official govt site of your home country.
