It was actually on a train, but hey ho, still airport related.
The BTP urged passengers to label foods and to ‘bring samples of cakes’ on their next visit.
I wonder if that’s so the officers can sample the end product themselves‽
Guys, please don’t bag your Huel up in little blue baggies and fly with it I’m surprised they found this on a train though. Sounds like it was accidentally left on the train, not many trains conducting searches of bags!
I bag my huel up and put it back in the original huel bag when i fly, this means i don’t have to find a scale to weigh out my huel when away.
Ive only been stopped once and just had to explain what it was and they let me past. I only ever fly with hand luggage though so im always there to tell them what’s in the bags if needed.
The only time I got stopped was trying to take a pork pie through…this was at the time of the BSE/CJD MadCowDisease etc. fiasco, when funeral pyres of dead animals brightened up our nighttime skies.
It was a vegan porkless pie, and they let me through. In those days there weren’t any vegan options about so I had to take my own. If only Huel had been around then.
Anyway, I was allowed to take it through.
There was another funny incident at the Reichstag building in Berlin where all entrants are body searched. I had an object in my pocket which they were interested in. It was a plastic budgie. I told them I was budgie smuggling. They obviously weren’t amused. Germans don’t have a sense of humour apart from Henning Wehn, and probably didn’t understand the joke, but I was allowed to carry on.
This is a true story.
