    before i go through the trouble of making labels for chocolate bars or anything like that, i wanted to make sure it's ok to bring food type things into another country? if so, should it go in checked luggage or carry on? am i going to be hassled about it at customs?

      I don't think it should be a problem. We brought granola bars for everyone. I think as long as the food is in it's original package, you should be okay.

        did you bring it in checked baggage or carry-on?

          I would say checked bags would be best? What airline are you flying on? I was thinking of doing this too but I was afraid the chocolate would melt in the heat? What about buying it down there at Walmart or something?

            i really don't want to go shopping down there. plus, our guests are almost all on our same flight, arriving the same day as us, and i wanted to hand the bags out that night when we do our welcome thing at the bar.

            if it turns out that it will be a problem, i will just skip snacks and food-favors. dreams has 24 hr room service, so i don't see why anyone would need them ... candy labels were just a quick, easy, personal touch, ya know?

              You'll have to take it in your checked luggage. You should be okay to have your own labels on them already- but original packaging would be best.

              I'm planning on keeping all "meltable" items in a cooler pack in my checked luggage-- it will help keep the items in tact until you get into your air conditioned room at the resort.

                True.....then I would pack them in an insulated cooler to be save and put in your suitcase :)

                  hmm ... maybe i'll skip the chocolate so i don't have to bother with insulating (besides if all that chocolate is in my house i'll end up eating it, LOL!) and just do some other kind of candy, like lifesavers?

                    haha thats true, I would have the same problem :)
                    Lifesavers would be cool!

                    I wanted to get Mexican candy in Cancun but dont want to have to go out and search for it and not find something good? :)

                    I have been searching online and found these: Corona Beer Mint Rolls: 100CT Tub

                    I thought they were cute :) and Mexican candies are here: Mexican Fiesta Candy
