I often carry with me through airport security more than 3 ounces of toothpaste, in the hopes that I can helpfully explain to a TSA agent that toothpaste is not a gel, aerosol, or liquid, but is-by definition-a paste. Sadly, they have yet to try to take my toothpaste.Luckily for me and all travelers, the TSA knows how complicated deciding what fits into the ever-nebulous "gel, aerosol, and liquid" category, especially with holiday specific items, so they've published this helpful list of holiday foodstuffs not to bring on the plane:
  • 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
Also, no snow globes. Remember, knowing is half the battle.Via TPM.
