When I recieve the blue customs delcaration card when flying I always fill it out just in case the computers are down when I arrive at my point of entry. Question 11 (a) asks about fruits, plants, food, insects, I always check yes because I generally bring back candy. When using the GE kiosks there is more descriptive question regarding food and is more specific as to the type of food they are questioning, and I answer this question no. I recently had a discussion with a customs officer regarding the way the question was asked on the blue customs declaration card and at the kiosk. His reply was "if you can put it in your mouth it is food" and should be answered yes at the GE kiosks. So, on my last trip when I returnded to the US when I went to the GE kiosk I did answer yes to the food question and of course recieved a "do not pass go slip" there was a customs agent sitting at a desk next to the GE kisoks, so I went to him with the slip. He asked me why I had received the "no go slip" when I told him it was for candy, he flipped out on me, told me that I really screwed myself up and also the system. He then got up and told me to go to another customs officer as he stomped off. The second officer asked me the same question and I gave him the same answer. He was much nicer than the first and told me that it was NOT necessary to declare candy, and sent me on my way. So, IMOP you are screwed either way. The blue customs declaration card asks about food the GE kiosk is more specific about the type of food, so your damed if you do and damed if you don't. All you need is to get a customs officer that goes competely by the book and you could loose your Global Entry prvivilege. As the first officer I spoke to said to me in our discussion "if you can put it in your mouth" it is "food." Comments?
