Will be travelling to the U.K. from the U.S. and would like to take my protein powder and some health bars to snack on during my visit. Is this allowed to bring into the country?

Just curious - you can buy those fairly easily in the UK - any reason you particularly want to bring your own? – Mark Mayo Aug 27 '12 at 23:11

I don't see any reason why not, unless your planning to import enough to pass from personal to commercial use. In my experience, custom agents are mostly interested in animal or plant products and not packaged foods.
