Filled chocolates in carry on from Paris?

Have any of you recently brought chocolates in your carry on through Orly or CDG? I am just wondering if they consider the fillings of some chocolates as being a liquid or a gel etc. I am leaning towards it being ok but don't want to waste a lot of money on gifts by getting them confiscated. Checking them makes me a bit nervous...

    As a followup, we went through security at Orly and Heathrow with nary a second glance so chocolate seems a-ok.

      From many years of transatlantic crossings, I have never had any chocolates confiscated. I always list them too on the customs form. So, stock up while you are here!

        Friend just left for the states with a ton of Genin chocolates, no issue at CDG.

          Security everywhere is incompetent. If I were checking bags, I surely would have confiscated them for one of my many breaks.

          technically, you should have no problems.

          This is subject to change, depending on the mood of the guard at that particular moment.

          I would expect you to have problems on your US connecting flight, if you had problems at all, rather than the Paris-US leg, but YMMV
