Can you bring: Zatarain's crab boil in the bag into Chile?

Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

I suggested you give it a try, by declaring it at customs. At worst, you’ll have to dump it there. I sometimes bring in food items that I have no idea as to whether they are allowed or not, but always declare them, and have never had anything refused entry. I think it helps a lot by declaring stuff, as no doubt, your average Chilean will think it’s smart to slip stuff through, only to get caught.

if it is cooked, processed, sealed, you are fine.

best to have an ingredient list too, just in case they go 'WTF is that'.

From what I see on the product page, should be no problem.

Damn, a Cajun spice crab feast in Chile sounds awesome to me. If you are on the coast here, crab is soooooooo cheap. I am from the USA west coast (Dungeness, rock, giant Santa Barbara crab and the occasional spider crab) and lived in Maryland for 14 years (Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab with Old Bay Crab Seasoning).

Enjoy.
