When you find yourself second guessing what you can actually take through airport security, it's good to have a plan. Obviously you understand and abide by the obvious no guns, no fireworks, no “sharp-pointy-things” rules. But food just seems like one of those things that you are never quote sure what you can and cannot take. So here are 9 easy snacks that you can take through airport security without getting arrested.
Want to try the easiest website builder ever made? Here's a 14 day trial on us.
You can bring your own food from home to eat in the airport & on the plane.
There are some weird things you can't take past security, so beware of the liquid and gel-like items you may be tempted to take with your food.
An Example –
An unwrapped cheeseburger with fries and a big container of ketchup would not be allowed past security because;
a) The food is not wrapped.
b) Ketchup is a gel.
Finally, there are a few things to steer clear of bringing with you on your trip. Keep these at home, or prepare to let the TSA enjoy them on their next break.
While there is never a guarantee that some rogue TSA agent won't give you a hard time trying to take those delicious apples or pretzels to your gate, according to the letter of the law, you're allowed. If you find a TSA agent that needs some extra Showiteer Love, make their day with a smile (you know we love Hugs, but maybe TSA agents don't) and maybe your best joke.
Let us know in the comments if you have had any issues with these, or any other snacks.
And we surely hope that your next trip will be to Arizona for Showit United! It is the ultimate conference for photographers and creative entrepreneurs. And if you have a serious need to travel, you can check out these other wonderful conferences and workshops that we are happy to be part of.
