Kinder Surprise are illegal as they are a danger to children.

I discovered this week that paracetemol is also banned in certain US states and its equivalent is Tylenol.  Of course it doesn't have any side effects.

The Italians can't be too happy at one of their global companies (Ferrero makes Kinder Surprise)) losing out to US business but BigPharma will be happy enough. Tylenol is produced in the United States.

Hi SR,"Of course it doesn't have any side effects". Just looked at that list of pain killers ,they all come with very nasty side effects, and it gets worse when you "mix and match" them. Any one in any doubt, just Google them individually, be prepared
to be terrified!
But then swallowing lots of multi shaped and sharp plastic parts is not smart either.

Ferrero is missing a huge & profitable marketing trick.

Omit the toy, that'd be a great surprise! And reduces costs & increases profit simultaneously.

No medication is risk free Apogee so we just have to take our chances. Fortunately the internet helps inform us rather than being totally reliant upon doctors.

Have you tasted a Kinder Surprise Joe? I think the chocolate is awful.

I'm with you on the Kinder chocolate - almost as bad as a Hershey bar.
Absolutely brilliant graphics, superbly shocking!

I've never tried a Hershey Bar Dorothy. Don't think it's on my list of 100 things to do before I die. :)
