You can't send chocolate to the US

This sucks.
I have an etsy friend I intended to send a little care package of typically British fare, in the form of an assortment of chocolate bars. However, I have come into difficulties with new licensing laws which stop the import of any foodstuff in to the USA without proper a proper license.
Pants :-(

Now I shall have to come up with something else that is typically British, but not food. Any thoughts?

Edited:
Now wait just a second, we may have found some legislation that makes it ok after all....

I would think that sending a prepackaged box as a gift would be ok. Hope you can figure it out! good luck

I know I've sent chocolate to the US with no probs before now.

oh, chocolate!

I know I've sent it OUT of the US before... maybe I just never started what it was?

So, what's the verdict? Is it ok to send or not... If it's not, another option would be a british flag. :)

If you send chocolate in the summer, depending on WHERE in the US, it might be melted. Seriously...Chocolate melts at 88 degrees. Here it's over 90. HTH!
