They specifically ask Indians travellers if they're carrying food at the immigration gates in US. Although, they didn't ask me this time.

Shouldn't they be asking for rats instead? Or maybe have a complete medical checkup when they let us folks in?

Marmite is nice but Bovril is much better. That lovely beefy flavour is awesome

They always ask italian travellers if they are bringing back meat. I told them no and later had to explain that I didn't consider salted pork to be meat. :oops:

Someone I know was asked if he's carrying food. He later had to explain he didn't consider sweets food. The immigration official asked, if it is eaten, then it is food. Not brain surgery man.

Somehow I can't see an illicit trade in Marmite booming, with prohibition type bars and everything.
