Travel friendly Pate and Cheese

Hi Florence - I just went through CDG Terminal 2 yesterday - i had 10 tins of assorted pates, three jars of rillette, and three mustards (I won't be going back to Paris soon :( - I just checked it in my luggage, the woman at the ticket counter said I could carry it on and I just told her had pate and she said ok and checked it.

When I got to US customs I claimed the appropriate amount and checked the box on the form that I was carrying meat - I had no problems thankfully.

However I was flying air Canada so I landed in Montreal THEN went through US customs in order to fly to Boston. Not sure if that makes a difference.
