Perhaps you jest, I'm not sure, but TSA has an extremely long and detailed list of what you can and cannot do:

Some of that was like "well, of course" but others kind of left me scratching my head a bit.

You can pack cheese in your checked bag though. Last time I flew I had 25 lbs of curds in my case; bringing emergency supplies from Wisconsin to people stuck on the East Coast.

So you knew how much your curds weigh?

Yeah, I had to weigh them. Used the approx weight on the bags to get close.

It never a curd to me.

I always have to take some Brick cheese to my brother in Massachusetts when I visit. It is semi-soft but I have never had an issue if it is in my carry-on. The only problem I had was with the chill pack. When still solid (on the way east) they let it go through but if it is melted (one the way home) they did not. I buy them at the Dollar store so them confiscating one was no big deal. I just make sure I pack it in my checked luggage for the return trip now.

For those not familiar, Brick cheese is a semi-soft washed rind cheese which can best be described as a very mild Limberger. Hard to find outside Wisconsin but you can get really good stuff in most local grocery stores all over the state.

I want a hardness tester at every gate, not some overpaid, overweight TSA moron salivating at my cheese.
Either it is less than 100 Rockwell K or it a BOMB!

Trying to bring an assault brie on the plane, Subby?

I think Camembert is the tactical assault cheese.

What if a man with very big brie gets on a plane?

Are Brie Larson and Alison Brie on a no-fly list because of this?

Wow! The nice parcel delivery man brought us this yesterday and I had my first bite of Brick today.
My husband is test-driving it and their Moz for his pizza oven follies. I love this stuff!

Enjoy! Brick is especially good with dark rye bread. Widmer's is good stuff.

That sounds good! I'm a covert. I might go shave off a bit before dinner.
Shhhhh!

As my wife's student learned hummus is a liquid

I learned that Nutella is considered a liquid the hard way.

Hope that TSA ogre enjoyed my giant jar of Nutella.

I dated a girl named 'Brie'; albeit briefly.

She more-or-less embodied everything I would also say about the cheese.

Any large amounts of dense organic material will slow you down if it's in your checked bag, especially if you also have a lot of electronics.

This includes both blocks of cheese and large amounts of paper goods (an Apples to Apples deck, rubber banded into bundles)

/after minutes of the two TSA folks conferring over my bag (it was slow in Tucson that day, and there was no line), they asked to open my bag
//I said 'it's about the cheese, isn't it?'
///the younger female looked at the middle aged guy and said 'I told you!'
////has also been stopped for a 10-strip of batteries before 9/11

But did you really have to check it, or could you have brought your casein with you?
