Once banned Kinder Eggs are finally coming to the U.S.

The Kitchn:

Kinder Eggs, also known as Kinder Surprise, are egg-shaped chocolates with a small toy prize inside, and they’re wildly famous and popular treats in Europe and much of the rest of the world. Unfortunately, they’re banned in the U.S. because it’s illegal to sell candy with non-edible objects inside it, on the grounds that the object is a choking hazard.

But starting this month, Kinder Eggs will finally be available legally in the U.S. They’re not exactly the same toy-containing Kinder Surprise Egg that’s been banned, however. It’s a newer variety called Kinder Joy.

This is one of those things we Canadians have always held up as a reason why Canada is better than the US. We’ll have to find something else now.



  • It’s worth mentioning that the change was to the product, not the rule.

    This product is a plastic shell with two parts: One half of the shell contains candy, the other half contains a toy.

    So we can still mock them for this.

    • And, as long as we can’t get over our fetish for going bankrupt with healthcare, you’ve got that over us, too.

      • Right as I was writing that first comment, I saw the Boston Celtics’ whitewashed Arthur for the first time.

        It’s not like we’re going to run short of American stupidity any time soon, you know? πŸ™‚

    Great, because we had a severe shortage of chocolate candy before. Can’t wait to try this maple chocolate covered moose fur.

    As long as we have an orange orangutang (and yes, I do realize I’m unfairly insulting apes) in the Oval Office, you’ll never run short of reasons why Canada is better.

    • Most years, I go by The Arrogant Worms “we won’t say that we’re better, it’s just that we’re less worse.”

      But fuck that noise. This year we’re better. πŸ™‚
