My kids LOVE Kinder Eggs. Heck, I do too! When I went to college in England, I bought them all the time and had a big collection of the awesome toys that are hidden inside. They were hard to find in the United States, but could be purchased at British shops and other stores that sold foreign foods. Then someone decided they were unsafe and they became illegal in the United States. BOO!
Sometimes brave people, like my mom, sneak them into the US. Here’s a contraband egg my mom brought me from Wales earlier this year.
Kinder has created a new egg that’s legal in the US and still has all of the awesomeness of the original eggs. They’re called Kinder Joy Eggs. I didn’t know about them, but while browsing a new local grocery store, Harvest Fresh Farmers Market, I unexpectedly found them! They were a bit pricey, but I knew the kids would be crazy for them, so I got one for each kiddo. The egg splits into two, and each side is covered and sealed with plastic. One side contains some yummy Nutella-like deliciousness with 2 chocolate balls in it, and the other side contains a super awesome Kinder toy that’s just like the toys in the original eggs.
My kids, being little budding YouTube stars, demanded that I make a video of them opening their eggs. So here it is. (Click Continue Reading for the video if you can’t see it.) Thanks, Kinder! We’re loving the new, legal eggs!
