I have bought fudge for gifts in NZ but am now unsure whether I will be allowed to take it inti UK - will I?
Turns out you can bring any amount of fudge you wish to in the UK, as long as it is for personal use (i.e. not for resale). Fudge should be a confectionery, and according to UK customs rules confectioneries are exempt from import restrictions:
Exempted food products
The following products are exempted from the rules:
- chocolate and confectionery (but not if the sweets are made with high levels of unprocessed dairy ingredients)*
*Confectionery, chocolate or cakes (including Christmas cake, Simnel cake or cakes containing nuts) are permitted from any country as long as they are for your personal consumption and do not contain fresh cream or high levels of dairy products. Confectionery that contain high levels of dairy products include Burfi, Gulab Jaman, Halwah or Halva, Ras Malai, RasGullah, Ladoos, and Chum Chum.
