Ok, I am traveling to Spain soon, and when I travel I usually bring a bit of protein powder (I put it in cottage cheese or yogurt to add some flavor and texture).

However, I suspect that my usual approach — Ziploc baggies in a freezer bag — might invite, uh… extra scrutiny… at customs (see photo).

Anyone have alternative ideas about how to transport this stuff without creating suspicion? The original packaging won’t work because it is very bulky.

@pganssle you could print labels saying “totally NOT drugs”


@hynek That is exactly what a criminal would do. Maybe I should print labels that say “Cocaine” and “Heroin”, since that is something no smuggler would do.

@pganssle You’re oddly well-informed about what a criminal would do 🤨
