If anyone is gonna teach you how to get food through security, it’s me! I remember Maney was so floored that I got a CAKE through TSA for my mom’s birthday!

So if you’re traveling during the holidays, and you want to bring along some of your favorite foods or take some home with you when you leave, I’ve got you covered. It’s no problem on a road trip, where all you need is a cooler to store them in, but if you’re flying? That’s a little trickier because the TSA has strict rules.

However, according to Today, there is a way to do it.TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein explains, “If people want to travel with food or drinks, what they really need to do is focus on whether the item is solid, because if it’s a solid item, then it can go through a checkpoint.” The TSA allows you to bring liquids – or what they call “spreadables” – up to 3.4-ounces through security, but anything larger than that has to go in a checked bag.

But the TSA shares a way around that for any liquids or spreadables that are larger than 3.4-ounces so you can carry them on with you: freeze it solid in advance. “As long as it’s frozen, that’s okay,” Farbstein says. “Then it’s a solid.” If it melts in the bag before you get it through security, then you’re out of luck, but if it’s frozen when you go through TSA security, then it can fly with you.
