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