BRITS heading to Spain this summer can no longer take a popular snack with them into the country.
Since the UK left the EU, new rules are in place for taking food to Spain.
This includes any animal products which fall under two categories – meat and dairy items.
Obvious items such as sausages, ham and cheese are banned, but the ban extends to items that use meat and dairy products as part of their ingredients.
Holidaymakers will easily fall victim to this if they buy food at the airport, and take it with them into the country.
