Kinder Surprise

Lately, I've had a craving for a treat I had a lot when I was little. They are called Kinder Surprises and my grandmother used to bring them to me from Germany. They aren't sold in the US because of FDA regulation (did you know no food can be sold with unedible things inside it due to a 1938 law?) but you can get them all over Europe. 

Kinder Surprises are little chocolate eggs (milk on the outside, white on the inside) that have a smaller, plastic egg inside it that has a toy inside that you assemble. These toys are always really cool and some people even have collections. As a kid, I always loved putting together the toys. 

But the toys aren't what I miss - I miss the egg itself. The chocolate is thin (like good European chocolate always is) and tastes so good. If you're travelling to Europe any time soon and see these, pick one or two up for me and bring them home. I'll love you forever for it!
