I have read some past threads about bringing food items into the country. We will arrive Feb 16th to sail. We know not to bring in food from the plane, fruits, nuts, vegies etc. We know to declare everything. We know not to hide any food. We know to write everything down we are bringing in.
So my question is how about spices? I have some spice packs to make certain dishes I would like to bring so I don't have to buy large amounts of each spice. Coffee? Can I bring the coffee I like from home? Tuna packs? Someone said any spice pack that contains a milk product is a no no. Its dried milk.
A friend of mine who went to NZ about 8 years ago said customs was so stricked they took away her breath mints. Really?
