Hi, I joined this swap before remembering that you can't send cereal or coffee into the USA from overseas. Nearly all of my swap partners have been from the USA. What happens if I get another USA swap partner?

Hi mysticalmagic I have sent packaged coffee to the US quite a few times and have never had any problems with it not getting through customs, I always write on the customs form that it has coffee in the package, I just had a look on the us customs site and found this; If you are a private individual who wishes to send beverage and food items to the U.S., you should be aware that some items are highly restricted, particularly food items with meat products, including soup mixes, bouillon, sausages, tinned meats, etc., and fresh produce. As a general rule, candies, condiments, spices, coffee and teas that are commercially packaged are ok, however bulk teas or spices, etc. are subject to inspection and if they are found to have insects, they may be seized and destroyed.

So it looks like it would be soup mixes that might be the problem rather than coffee ?

No oatmeal please!

I was going to be fussy and ask for no coffee or no oatmeal, but my hubby loves both and I don't mind sharing my goodies with him, so I look forward to receiving anything for this swap!

moosemama 12/13/2009 #
