    Obviously I should have checked before attempting yogurt contraband thru TSA, but the whole yogurt = food yet being a "cream" didn't register with me. I was looking forward to my greek yogurt since it's one of the tastier things I eat on my current diet!

    But, of course, they did not confiscate my two jello cups.

    Oh, and I was informed every electronic larger than a cell phone has to come out of the bag, now.

    In my experience, when a screener says "now" in the context you mentioned, he or she is either making rules up as they go along or is actively trying to be difficult.

    If the Jello cups were over 3.4 ounces they should have been confiscated according to TSA rules. But we all know how that works.

    well, it wasn't a direct quote. he just told me "anything bigger than a cell phone", which I knew to be BS. I added "now" since this is the first time a smurf at CHA has told me this. Hadn't seen him there before, either.

    Cause yogurt you can not see through, you can see through jello, that's why the passed it. Yogurt is like milk or white stuff, so they have to test it. They did my granddaughter dry milk like that.
