For real, America?

I just got two half-pints of jam confiscated by the feds.

Sorry, Mom and Dad. No Door County Cherry Vanilla Jam or MN Concord Grape Jam for you until Christmas. I thought that their super solid texture would qualify them as solids to airport security, but alas, they are gels. Placed in the same category as toothpaste.

Here's what I think: Local, organic, and homemade foods are gonna save this fast food nation, not what's gonna take it down. Lay off my jam.

Whew. I'm feelin' kinda feisty this mornin. Good thing I didn't tell the nice officer that I thought jam could change the world. They'd have locked me up for sure.

sure they are liquids. It happen to be with peanut butter the other day. I forgot to put it in my checked bags. Sorry to hear .I was angry for days as i went to a country with no peanut butter .. just kidding they have it but it was expensive

I am so sorry to hear that. It is very infuriating.

How frustrating! SO sorry, that would have ticked me off for sure.

Happened to me with chunky salsa. I think they just want to eat our stuff!

Ugh, that sucks! And I agree with Diann, if it looks tasty they probably just want to munch on it!

I'm really sorry. This is a shame! When I need my jam, I need my jam. I feel the pain.

ah man, what a pain. there was so much I wanted to buy but the teeny size of fluid meant I couldn't.
