For the EU, the controlling technical reference for your question is found in EC Regulation 206/2009 and the other related regulations such as EC Regulation 136/2004. I assume that 'Indian Chips' are a recipe containing potatoes (kale, bananas, and other foodstuffs qualifying as 'chips') which have been fried in oil (e.g., sunflower oil) and other spices ...

MOST countries severely restrict the importation of food from abroad. Spain AFAIK is no different. So unless you want to eat the stuff on board during the flight, you're liable to get in trouble with UK customs on arrival and have to watch your stuff getting confiscated, probably also facing a fine.

Regarding this great question, there are two critical points here: (Point 1) Nutella is incredibly different, depending the production center. Much as with, say, Lindt chocolate, if you are an aficionado, when you pick up a jar of Nutella, the very first thing you do is put on your reading glasses and examine the extremely fine print on the rear label, so ...

As stated in previous answers, Nutella will not be allowed in the cabin. However, you might find Nutella at the airport's duty-free shops (after you check-in and enter the boarding area). If bought there, then you can bring it in the cabin.

No. Plain and simple. Nutella is basically a gel and honestly I tried once to ask 2 different airports by sending them an email, whether similar things were allowed. They said they are not. Anyway, Nutella doesn't cost a lot and you could try to "sacrifice" a glass of it, but I wouldn't do the same with others gastronomic specialities.

Nutella is pretty similar to toothpaste in terms of viscosity. Since toothpaste counts as a liquid (source: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/security/aviation-security-policy/lags_en.htm), it is reasonably safe to assume that Nutella does so as well. Also, this page lists "pastes, jams and jellies" as liquids. The latter page is for British Airways ...

Food options will depend on where you are, there is food available everywhere and lots of good choices. It would help folks answer to know you will be staying or hanging out in Bangkok. Street food is safe to eat, Thais take pride in preparing good food. Most is prepared in front of you from fresh ingredients. The only real food to be wary of is the dish ...

Having visited Istanbul and gotten Dondurma from such a vendor complete with the show, all I can say is it was one of the funnest experiences of the trip. I had no idea about what went on when asking for an ice cream cone and the Turks who were around when it occurred were all obviously in on the joke since they grew up with it. The showmanship alone was ...

Just practice your eye-hand coordination, e.g. you can play catch with your kids. If your eye-hand coordination is good enough and you have fast enough reflexes, you'll be able to snatch that huge bulk of ice cream enough for 20 persons that the ice cream man was holding in front of the woman's face in the video.

It'd be like going to a comedy show and telling the comedian off for making jokes at the audience. If it's expected and part of the 'show' or experience, it's what he does for a living, enjoys doing and to be told not to do it - well it'd be considered wrong. I'd hope you wouldn't tell the waitress not to ask about your day (she's being friendly as part ...

Simple You don't buy it Let's just analyse this for a bit shall we? You're not paying for the ice cream, you're paying for the experience. If you like ice cream but don't like entertainment or 'street entertainment' to be specific, buy your ice cream from somewhere that doesn't do that... Do not try and get the ice cream vendor to not 'do his show' for ...

When these cups are seen next to coconuts, the proprietor is likely to be selling 'vaisalo', which is a smooth beverage made from... well, coconuts. A corroborating image, which has been labeled is shown below... Source: Vaisalo - American Samoa, fair use In the absence of a label, the only way to tell the difference between vaisalo and 'koko Samoa' is ...

I don't particularly recall from my time in Mongolia, but I say "embrace the local stuff" when I'm travelling, and if I get sick, so be it (it's unlikely anyway). Lost in the Mongolia Grocery Store, however, is a post on some of the foods you might find in a Mongolia supermarket, which is where I assume you'll be shopping if you're after milk "offered to ...

I'm in Chile at the moment. Plenty of restaurants have lunch meal deals. They tend to be quite decent and cost 4-6 USD. This typically gets you a starter, a main course and, sometimes, a drink. The main course can be a fish. Almost always, this is not only great value for money, it's also a good meal. At the Mercado Municipal in Santiago, which is famed ...

Tried to figure this out for years. My polish girlfriend then told me a trick how they made turkish coffee in Poland when they had nothing else than hot water, coffee and one (two) cups. Put the coffee powder in one cup and fill it with boiling water as usual. Wait until the desired intensity of coffee taste has developed. Then tap or knock the cup on the ...

Yes. Food is served for free inside all coaches of Duronto Express. The food charges are already included in your ticket expense. With what I remember from my last booking in a Sleeper Duronto Coach, I was asked the choice of Vegetarian or Non Vegetarian at the time of booking. In case you missed it, you could just let your coach attendant know about your ...

According to the Starbucks official website, there are two Starbucks locations close to West Village that fulfill your requirements Lafayette & 8th Street 13-25 Astor Place Open 5:30 AM to 1:00 AM New York University 45 West 4th Street Open 7:00 AM to 12:00 AM

Starbucks store allocater may help you. It can show every single Starbucks location, opening time, plus some extra service like wifi/mbile payment/24-hours opening, on Earth. However, many Starbucks stops selling around half hour before closed.

I have followed several long distance walkers, one on a blog and an other in the book they published about it, as well as seeing blog items that I do not follow long term. They use wheeled transports, dragged behind them, for parts of their trip or even for the whole. Here is a link to the blog I followed. Only a small part is in English, but it is enough ...

Beef jerky. This is truly an American thing. You can get different kinds of jerky: beef, antelope, deer, buffalo, elk. Elk might be your best bet, it's one of my favorites, and I think elk only exist in North America.

Maple syrup (or maple candies) is always a winner. Cheese can also be a good choice (needs to be vacuum sealed). Smoked salmon (buy frozen and wrapped in cloth in your checked-in bags). Wild rice is really nice. ...

Heineken Bar at Incheon Airport The Incheon Airport webpage mentions Heineken Bar, one in the East and one in the West side of the duty free area, both next to gate 4F. I don't know if they have draught beer, but the name looks promising. Below is a screenshot from the linked site: The Jet Lagged Lizard at Incheon A couple hundred metres outside of the ...

The main difference between liquid soap and dish washer detergent is price. So not a good idea in general, but only because liquid soap is more expensive. One recipe for liquid soap is given here – note olive oil, coconut oil, essential oils. Some of the ingredients for a well-known brand of washing liquid are listed here – note Sodium laureth sulphate, ...

I assume you refer to economy class. I don't know about Naples-Milan, but my experience is that in most national flights Alitalia serves only a minimal amount of food and beverages. I expect to see a limited selection of beverages (tea, coffee, water, coke, and orange juice), and a very small snack (sweet or savoury at your choice), like a small package of ...

I found the Deira Spice Souk very interesting. It's an easy metro ride from the airport. I considered picking up some gifts there for family, but ended up not doing so. If you have cooks in your family they might appreciate some of the unique spices offered here.
