Bringing dips into Bali

I've just bought some snacks to bring with me. (dips, nuts, cheese, crackers, chocolate etc.)

My question is-Is a dip considered a liquid? I usually pack food into my handluggage, but unsure if my -smoked salmon dip will be considered a liquid or solid food. Learnt the hard way that yoghurt is classified as a liquid even though it looks reasonably solid to me.

freeze the dip and pack it in your suitcase, nuts are like one tenth of the price in bali and many more flavours, so i would buy there. definately be considered a liquid at the melbourne end.

Hi 50 - A dip is a liquid. If it was solid you could not dip anything into it. The customs declaration form also requires you to declare any animal products.

Do not pack the dip into your hand luggage, it will be considered a liquid. Put the cheese, dips, chocolate into a soft pack with an ice-brick and pack it into your checked in baggage. Declare you have food and you won't have any problems.

Go to Carrefors or Pepito when you get to Bali and buy your snacks, much better choice and always fresh and always something different to try.
