I've bought half my things....sitting in a bag atm, it's a little heavy :/

I have a question, mainly directed at people that have participated in one of these before:

The EU bans all foods entering any EU country that haven't been made in another (Germany to UK for example is allowed) so, with that in mind what do the non-EU people put on their customs label to ensure it arrives??

someone could tell me that customs allow it, as I said someone that has participated before should know.

Ahh Kellye, sorry hun i'll send it now. I forgot as I had to speak to your swapee before sending to you.

I'm not 100% Sarah, but I ran the last swap, and we never had a problems with customs. I think I remember someone saying they just wrote 'sweets' on the customs lable.

Aah, cool. Thanks Mon. I'm gonna get another savoury & then I'm done, any more & I think postage will cost more than the contents :/

Last year I believe I wrote candy, and there wasn't any problems at least that wefe brought to the swap's attention.

Received my swap parcel from Shala today, got some really yummy things in here and some that I haven't tried before! Really cheered me up this morning.
I will be packaging mine up and sending on Friday or Monday by the latest!

I'll let you know as soon as it comes :-) I'm just waiting on the chance to hit a store I thought of another must have to put in your box before I ship :-)
