My mum wants to send me some chocolates n foie gras... But dont want them to spend money on something that will not get through etc...

Where should I look??

Remind your cousin to declare EVERYTHING on the customs form and most foodstuffs should be ok. They only get difficult when people don't declare food items and try to 'smuggle' them in.

I took back a whole load of stuff when I was back visiting a few weeks ago - I declared everything - even went so far as declaring I had some prohibited items what a numpty! the guy said "what like drugs and pornography?" I said "No, goose fat" I think he thought I was a twit.
Anyway they let me take in everything. The only thing we've had taken from us when declared was a tin of confit de canard because it was on the bone.

Foie gras...I'm coming to yours for new Year!

I agree with the 'declare everything' philosophy. We did that and went straight through whereas those who didn't declare anything were being pulled to the side and bags searched!
