Best to leave that gravy for the checked
When it comes to packing your Thanksgiving dinner—or
bringing the leftovers to a refrigerator near you—there are a few things you
should know about the TSA. In addition to the many things you can't pack in
your carry-on, there are 10 types of foods you absolutely take through
Coincidentally, you can find many of these foods on a Thanksgiving
dinner table.
So before you pack that carry-on, educate yourself: Alcohol
We'll start off with the not-so-surprising.
If you try to bring a full (or
opened) bottle of alcohol on your carry-on, they're definitely going to take
it away.
Creamy Dips and Spreads A lot of things could fall into this category:
vegetable dip, hummus, baked brie, sweet potato salsa, spinach dip, grandma's
"famous" salmon mousse.
Why you'd want to bring any of these things on a
carry-on is a mystery, but the more you know.
Gravy This is slightly sad news, considering just about anything is made
with better with a bit of gravy.
The good news: You can pack as many jars as
you want in your checked bag(s).
Jam and Jelly Doesn't matter if you're bringing them along as gifts or to
accompany all of the homemade bread you're inevitably going to eat—don't
bring it in your carry-on.
Maple Syrup There's a lot you can do with maple syrup for Thanksgiving
(think: maple-glazed roast turkey).
Pro tip: leave it for the grocery list.
Oils and Vinegars Along with alcohol, this should be a no-brainer.
Not to
mention a spill could ruin everything else in your bag.
Leave these essentials
to the host.
Salad Dressing Unless you plan on preparing a full-blown Caesar salad
mid-flight—even then, leave the condiments to the flight crew—best to
leave for post-travel preparation.
Salsa and Sauces Think of it this way: If you really wanted to make your
salsa or sauce ahead of time, it probably wouldn't even make it to the dinner
table—this is one of those food categories that falls under "once you dip
your chip, you just can't stop." Soups Packing soup sounds like a
nightmare in general.
Who wants to deal with explaining the mysterious
sloshing coming from your carry-on anyway? Add it to the post-flight grocery
Yogurts Yogurt and Thanksgiving don't seem to have much overlap, but who
are we to determine your holiday dinner menu? No matter when you like your
yogurt, there's no place for it on your carry-on. Erika Owen is the

You may dislike your grandma's gravy for one reason, but the
TSA would rather call it a "potential threat" if you try to bring it
in your carry-on.
