I had a look on the nz govt websites and could find nothing more than generalisations to the effect that you must declare all food and then they may, or may not let it in.
I would really like to get some more specific information if anyone has it.
I have to make a short trip to the US and one thing that I would like to do is to bring back some items that I cannot get here in NZ.
First up are "Ass Kickin" Peanuts. These are regular peanuts roasted with very hot spices. They are sold at retail in metal cans. Can I bring those in?
Next would be smoked wild caught Alaskan salmon. Normally sold at retail in airtight plastic packets.
If anyone has experience of the acceptability of either of these, I would be pleased to hear.
