Next Trip: Jan. 6 - April 7
Just don't carry them in Carry-on as some stuff may be taken away.
Last trip had coffee in Carry-on and they stopped me. Opened up the bag to see what it was. It was OK but they do make a mess going through your bag.
I'll put it in checked next trip. Also don't carry even a few medical pills in a shirt pocket. One year those set off the alarm.

musicman - if you want to bring steaks but can't use blue ice (not allowed) I would grab a few frozen juice cans and use that instead of ice cubes...
frozen juice is not allowed either.............it is liquid thawed. :-(
if transporting in checked baggage, no issue.
as carry on, they treat frozen liquid as if it is liquid.
A tip I learned many years ago is to line your cooler with newspaper, which helps to hold in the cold and keeps foods frozen longer. I usually bring a couple of the hard coolers that holds 6 drink cans in my checked luggage. I put one frozen ice pack in between the frozen food items. I'm from Houston and leave the house at 6:30 in the morning and land in Aruba about 3:00 p.m. which means I don't arrive at my timeshare until 4:00 p.m. and foods are still frozen. I do the same if I'm bringing some pre-made dips that I have put in zip locks and again the frozen ice packs are usually still frozen.
Hope this helps.
Not that I plan to do a whole bunch of cooking while we are down there....but I am interested in knowing what we can and can't bring to the island. We do plan to put stuff like cereal, quick meals, and snacks in there..but what is allowed in our bags on the plane (carry on or checked luggage)
Thanks for any information
