Just a quick question... coming back from Germany, the Duty Free sales clerks recommended against bringing back products with marzipan in them as they would be confiscated due to their "resemblance" of a certain material. Curious if you've run into that... or if they were just over-reacting. This would be for carry-on, and not in luggage that would be going through the CTX, just X-ray for a secondary upon re-entering the US at a connection.

Thanks! and appreciate the info on how things "should" be handled... they do need a "Bart Primer" downtown at the ivory tower.
