I doubt it will go bad. However, there might be other issues: Most countries have import restrictions for food due to diseases. Technically, Turkey does not allow the import of meat, although I understand that they're quite flexible with that. As a predominantly Muslim country, Bacon might raise some eyebrows in Turkey.

Freeze it, and put some dry ice in the container. The dry ice will keep it cold a lot longer than just insulation. Dry ice is usually ok on flights, but you do have to package it properly and tell the airline how many kilograms. The package basically has to allow the gas to vent - a styrofoam box not fully taped closed will be fine. And the weight is ...

I have flown from the USA back to Asia with cured meat products (southern hog jowls) without issue. I freeze them before I go, then wrap with some insulating materials. It survives some 24 hours of traveling without a problem. Usually at intermediate airports there is no health inspection, so there shouldn't be a problem in Italy (unless you have separate ...

It's not legal to sell cat meat in Switzerland, neither raw nor cooked. The Swiss Regulation of the Confederate Department of Interior on food of animal origin, article 2 has a list of animals of which the meat can be sold or distributed as food. It is therefore unlikely that you will find a restaurant catering with cat meat. If there are any, they are at ...

I don't think you're going to find a complete online list of food blogs that does what you want. The reason for this is that compiling and maintaining such a list would be a very time consuming task. Even if it was based on self-submission it runs the risk of having out-of-date blogs listed or being spammed or gamed by 'for-pay' food blogs. And it's still ...

From the US Customs and Border Protection site: Meat, milk, egg, poultry, and their products, including products made with these materials, such as dried soup mix or bouillon, are either prohibited or restricted from entering the United States, depending on the types of animal diseases which occur in the country of origin. Fresh (chilled or frozen), ...

Although the import* of food for private use or consumption is permitted in principle in Germany, meat, milk and dairy products must meet the same veterinary requirements as those applying to commercial imports. Quoted from source [2]: This means that travellers who are carrying such products may only enter the European Union through those points of ...

No. Travellers are not in general allowed to bring in meat, milk or their products, unless they are coming with less than 10 kilograms of meat, milk or their products from Croatia, the Faeroe Islands, Greenland, or Iceland. (EUROPA: Trade and Imports of Animal Products - Introduction of personal consignments) To untangle this a bit: Travellers are ...

Of all the drinks that are offered on board, other than water - tomato juice is the one that affects jet lag the least. Coffee (and other drinks with caffeine, like tea and mountain dew/energy drinks) will dehydrate you, which causes eye irritation and increases the symptoms of jet lag. Alcohol does the same as above. You are left then with natural fruit ...

The premise of this question is false. Airplane food is good on good airlines (many Asian airlines; Qantas) and bad on bad airlines (all US airlines, some European airlines). Whenever I fly Singapore Air (SQ), I look forward eagerly to the food. Even on economy class, they give you a fancy menu from which you can choose your meal option. And then for ...

For me, I have it only while flying domestic in the US. The reason is that out of the very limited selection of free stuff you can get from any US airline, tomato juice is the closest thing to some sort of savory, filling food-like substance. This is especially true since these days they often don't even have peanuts or some of those mini pretzels or mini ...

Boring explanation: They're lot numbers (ロット番号), not expiration dates, referring to a batch of product made at the factory. So if you call them up and say "hey, there's wombats in my tofu", they can recall the lot in question. As a consumer, you can't match a lot number to the expiration date (賞味期限), which you should find printed somewhere else on the ...
