    All we brought was some trail mix and snack bars. In the future I could see us bringing a lot more (peanut butter, cereal...)

    I bring the following in my checked suitcase:

    * One ten (10) pound box of frozen shrimp (Under 10 size - very large)
    * Frozen lobster tails from Costco
    * Frozen king crab legs from Costco
    * Several kielbasas (Great on the grill)
    * Several spicy Portuguese sausages (Fantastic on the grill)

    So far, all have survived the trip and have arrived still frozen.

    Regards,

    What Food do you bring????

    Things we can't purchase in Aruba......without being ridiculous, otherwise you'll be forced to pay an extra luggage fee.
    Basically....seasonings, coffee (peets) and special cuts of meats we get from our butcher but not like hauling 10lbs +.
    We used to get our seafood from Lings but since have established a great relationship with local fisherman who provides us with snapper, lobster, etc.

    We pack Bisquick pancake mix (in plastic bottle cause it's so lightweight) snacks, peanut butter & jam, tuna, mayo and other condiments along with breakfast foods. This year we'll try some frozen meat too. Any suggestions on the most successful way to pack them and keep them frozen? We travel non-stop from Boston in Jan. Thanks for the help.

    I saw a guy trying to take a jumbo sized jar of peanut butter through security in his carry on bag the other day. No matter how they tried to explain it to him, he just couldn't understand why he wasn't allowed to take it on the airplane.

    Wow David we own a seafood business and you take more than we do Just curious how you pack your frozen items? in a checked cooler? It seems like we are always at our limit with suitcases however I have some things in storage in Aruba so we should have lighter bags in the future.
