Like with everything else when crossing the border, YMMV. If you get unlucky and end up with someone who's a stickler for the rules, you might have to throw some stuff away.death_hawk wrote: ↑Mar 18th, 2017 12:14 amDo they actually care that much about everything but liquor and tobacco though?
Assuming nothing is prohibited (strawberries?) I don't think I've ever been billed for any grocery items that are of a reasonable retail (but over limit) quantity.
Then again... I saw someone in the office tossing their citrus because they were busted for it so maybe they do care about groceries.
I avoid buying any fresh fruits or vegetables for this reason. I might have gone over the dairy or poultry limit in the past, though, but I've never been called out on it.
I once crossed at a quiet crossing around midnight and was the only car for miles around. I had a car full of stuff for a Halloween party (candy, chips, soda, etc). The CBSA officer looked at my receipt and gave me a brief lecture about those types of items being taxable and not counting as groceries, but she still waved me through.
