    Helpful Hints for Holiday Travelers 2010
    http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/holiday_travel.shtm

    "Traveling with Food

    Everyone has favorite foods from home that they want to bring to holiday dinners, or items from their destination that they want to bring back home. Travelers should know that while pies are permitted through the security checkpoint, here is a list of liquids, gels and aerosol items that you should put in your checked bag, ship ahead, or leave at home.

    * Cranberry sauce
    * Creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, etc.)
    * Gift baskets with food items (salsa, jams and salad dressings)
    * Gravy
    * Jams
    * Jellies
    * Maple syrup
    * Oils and vinegars
    * Salad dressing
    * Salsa
    * Sauces
    * Soups
    * Wine, liquor and beer"

    Another taking food post.

    Ok so who has taken food to aruba and checked the bag..
    No problems... so nervous that it won't be there when we land... can you put those gel packs in there... I know you can't if you carry the food on but what about putting through checked baggage. any problems...debating what to do. Any food I have usually put in my carryon but this time we are bringing more food so hubby says check the bag..

    We just took food down in October...steak, pork chops, chicken breasts, bacon, canadian bacon, sandwich meat. We froze it all before we left, packed them first in zip lock bags and then in an insulated frozen food bag. Went right into our suitcase and upon arrival everything was still frozen. Worked out well. We saved money because we buy in bulk at BJs and had this stuff at home anyway. Cut down on our Aruba grocery bill significantly!

    Good luck - it was very easy for us.

    we have never taken frozen food with us...usually the higher end expense stuff (even in states) like balsamic vinegar and EVOO, and never had a problem...might try the frozen stuff this year since everyone that had done it has said it works great....

    Last year we took 2 suitcases full of food. Peanut butter,pasta,crackers ,cereal,breakfast bars,and some frozen stuff had no problem. With a 3 and a 6 year old it just makes sense. This year though we have to pay for the extra baggage.

    Yeah we will have to too...but I think 50.00 for baggage v/s the cost of the food may be ok

    Madame Janettes, Rumba's, Driftwood, El Goucho, Marina Parata all for dining. So many places. I love the shopping in town as well as shopping by the Highrises. I go in & out of all the hotels.

    We are there for two weeks so I first trip is to Price Smart. They will give you a one day pass and you can stock up on some items there. Beer and soda is a little cheeper. They have wonderful meat section. It's like BJ's or Cosco.

    We bring wine to Aruba every year. You are allowed 3 bottles per person. Pack it in a wine shipping 6 pack and check as luggage. Most restaurants allow you to bring wine for a corkage fee.
