I heard about this recently. I think it’s crazy that Kinder Eggs are banned. They’re my absolute go-to when I don’t know what to get someone for their birthday.

Ha. My Fiance LOVES them and I have a friend in Germany who ships them over to us.

When I used to vacation with my grandmother in Mexico as a child I used to buy these.  I don’t particularly like these but I think it’s a big overreaction.

We had something similar here in the US, anybody remember Wonderballs?

My fiance brought me home a Kinder Surprise from the UK when he was visiting his family. I think it’s totally a pack of crazy, overprotective moms spoiling the fun.

Oh apparently we banned those too in 1997, don’t we have bigger things to worry about?

This is so weird and I’m not sure if I buy this story.  Lots of local stores sell Kinder Eggs around here, (Los Angeles).  My brother and I used to collect the toys as children so sometimes when we’re feeling nostalgic we’ll buy the eggs for each other.  Maybe it’s just the means by which they enter the country and not the eggs themselves?

I have heard of them getting confiscated at customs.

Sad.

NOT! More Kinder Eggs for me!

Heh heh heh.

I never really liked KinderEggs — the chocolate is gross (I’m a high-end dark chocolate girl, go Bernard Callebaut & Lindt!), and the toys were always crap — but it makes me snicker that the US can’t get something we can.

They still sell them here in Oregon state.

@Meowkers:  I heard about this a long time and I also remember reading that a lot of the smaller stores will carry them illegaly.

If any of you have had Kinder Eggs in Europe do you think they taste different? I am convinced that they are not the same. I don’t really like them, it’s just nostalgia (my parents used to go to Austria to buy them and bring back a huge container).
