You jealous, Americans?

Mark down yet another non-American country that received the full joy Kinder Surprises. You know the one.

I used to buy them all the time when I was a kid. They are still sold here too. You guys are not missing much nowadays as last I checked: Kinder surprises only had boring little one-peice figurines in them

But back in my day, believe me shit was so cash. They used to contain disassembled model cars, airplanes and robots with kinetic motors that you get to piece together like lego. It was so much fun collecting the models and assembling an army of WWII war planes. Back then Kinder Surprises were so freaking awesome and they sold like hotcakes…until some idiot choked on some pieces and ruined it for everybody.

When I lived in France/Senegal (long story), I got these a lot, especially in France. I thought they were something like the greatest thing ever created by mankind. Back then, they still had decent toys, too; i think you could get things like really small Hot Wheels-type toys, little figures with movable body parts, etc. In retrospect, the chocolate was kinda crummy, but that’s what you get for buying Italian chocolate.

I don’t get chocolate.
It is unhealthy and disgusting to me.

BUT HOLY FUCK KINDER SURPRISES ARE GOOD!

Okay, I’m gonna have to interject that I’ve had Kinder Surprise, I’ve had Toblerone, I’ve had Ritter, I’ve had Hersheys… I’ve had a lot of the big name chocolates on the market foreign and domestic.

The best country for chocolate, though, is by far Brazil.

I quote my friend of this site to some american wankers(I don’t mean you all are just these guys) on Live seriously being racist homophobic you name it he said “All Americans are gun loving red necks who think they own the world” and it was the funniest awkward silence to date.

But getting something banned on the basis that it is too hard for a child to open is rather… stupid. I guess this is why Europeans don’t have an obesity problem. xD

I’d just like to use this opportunity to say: I don’t like Mikado.

Best Candy IMO I ever had was candy Legos. I was able to play with them, and integrate them with real legos…
In retrospect; that was not a child safe candy.

Go to Belgium, say that again when you get back.

You know, I’ve eaten a Hershey’s chocolate bar and I must say, it was pretty bad. (Otherwise, chocolate there is fine. :P)

funny joke

Hershey’s is superb.

No one’s going to get that, will they?


Actually, I always find this sort of thing odd. You can’t really make me jealous about something I haven’t had before, especially when it’s food or something I can’t really imagine.

And I’m not too fond of chocolate anyway. So you could give me the best chocolate in the world, I’d say “That is good chocolate,” and would look for something else to eat or drink to get the aftertaste out of my mouth.

There are also rockets in Canada.
They’re nothing like Smarties.
Smarties are the reason Canada’s standard of living is higher then the US’s.

Ya I know, I live in Canada.
On another note, I really don’t like mint chocolate, the two different flavors conflict way too much.

“Pure” Milk Chocolate?

Only dark chocolate is pure, you are mixed with the Dairy Untermenchen race to create some sort of milk/chocolate abomination against nature!

As a representative of the pure dark chocolate master race, I hereby decide to invade Poland for no reason.

Is your candy store three floors of awesome? Does it have an ice cream bar, its own merchandise and hold events? (Wait, an hour round-trip or an hour there and back?)

I discovered why Kinder Surprise is banned in the U.S:
“Aside from children potentially choking on the toys, the real reason Kinder Eggs are banned is the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938. This Act prohibits the embedding of non-food items completely enclosed inside food items, unless the non-edible part has a functioning value. For example a lollipop or popsicle stick is not edible but is a useful handle. This Act was originally put into place to prevent the addition of hazardous items to processed food and has never been changed.”

THAT’S…
JUST
STUPID!!
By this logic even easter eggs should be banned.

So what you’re saying is, all I need to do is carry around a penny or a rock or whatever and I’ll become illegal to eat?

Sweet.

Nope! Unless it’s actually INSIDE you, like a dildo.
Anyway, I often wondered why Kinder Merendero was invented, but now I guess the reason is that above.
