I didn't know that Kinder Surprise was illegal in the States.That was a surprise.
Yep, America, the land of absurd regulation - "The 1938 Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act contains a section highlighting that a confectionery product with a non-nutritive object, partially or totally imbedded within it, cannot be sold within the United States, unless the FDA issues a regulation that the non-nutritive object has functional value. Essentially, the 1938 Act bans “the sale of any candy that has imbedded in it a toy or trinket.” ...In 2012 the FDA re-issued their import alert stating “The imbedded non-nutritive objects in these confectionery products may pose a public health risk as the consumer may unknowingly choke on the object.”
It's delicious and has a toy! It must be a weapon! ;p
I wonder if anybodies ever eaten a whole kinder suprise, only realising there's a toy in there when it's half way down their throat.
