Wednesday Kinder Egg Blogging

New to Kinder Eggs? They're milk chocolate eggs with a hard plastic capsule inside containing a toy to put together.



Roll your cursor over the photo to make it change.



A little assembly. A little decal application. Result? Blue mummy.



Not as good as my original Kinder egg mummy.

Oh how wonderful! So once you open the toy and assemble, you then redesign? I've never heard of these things before.

In the first picture the open chocolate shell with toy reminds me of some sort of Georgia O'Keeffe creation!

Oh they don't have them in the US. There's a law that says something edible can't fully enclose something non-edible so Kinder Eggs can't be sold in the US.

This, of course, means I mail a lot of them to friends in the US.

Mummy - that's what my kids call me! :-)

Yep, Kinder Eggs are legal in 100 other countries including Canada but you can't (legally) get them in the U.S. Go figure, huh?

I love KinderEggs! I bring back a bunch every time I visit for my friends and family. Some of my friends and coworkers are addicted to them now.

I think the funniest thing is buying them in large quantities in Germany. All the people in the checkout line start shifting around in line and staring trying to figure out who would be stupid enough to be buying 24 kinder eggs.

I also thought that the US probably didn't have them because they were worried we would figure out some way to kill ourselves with them. Americans are probably just too dangerous to ourselves to have something like KinderEggs at our disposal.

Christina - that's an odd fact, but yes I never saw them in the US. Dixie - I love the pics with that changing effect. How do you do that? Very very cool...

My daughter loves Kinder Eggs. A local resturant that we use always gives her one when we have a meal there.

Thanks for the explanation on why these wonderful delights aren't available in the US. I also stock up when in England - they are so much fun, and some of the toys are incredibly neat and well designed.

Ah, love kinder eggs!! When I moved to teh States it was heart breaking to find that they are not sold here. Would always buy a case when I went back to visit north of the border. Hooked one of my workmates in a previous job on them (ordering online), and she went crazy as is expected with Kinder Eggs.
