thats when you go there and bring it to your homecountry within the EU.
50g are free, if its shipped. as far as i know the customs in the netherlands dont care for packages from the US that much. so you will probably not have to pay the taxes directly, but it is illegal to avoid these taxes. so you will have to go to the customs office and have to pay the taxes, otherwise it is illegal.
in germany it is very expensive. just an example: 250g Starbuzz are taxed around 35€, 50g Al Fakher = 4€. Depending on the worth.
