Not all eggs are created equal in the eyes of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Kinder Eggs, a popular European chocolate egg that contains a toy inside, is banned from importation into the United States because it contains a "non-nutritive object embedded in it."
With the Easter holiday around the corner, the agency issued the reminder this week, warning that the candy is considered unsafe for children under 3. Last year, Customs and Border Protection seized 25,000 of them in 1,700 incidents.

love kinder surprises.
are you friggen kidding me??? banning chocolates??? (which by the way i have never heard of any child in canada being harmed by the toy inside) – try banning your guns!!! they are just a tad more dangerous than a chocolate with a toy inside!!!
This is more reminding me of the "lets ban toys in Happy Meals" thing than anything else. I'd love to know the justification for why having a toy inside is a bad thing.
How did they get the toys inside the egg?
The hen lays them with the toy inside the egg.
But what if the egg cmae first?
Good to see our gov't is working diligently. I know I feel safer...
In all honesty, i'm sure that the border patrol does a great job in preventing stuff to get into our country. They do have a tough job. But really? Kinder eggs?
At least this shows that our border patrol is working diligently to protect children under three. Good job! Now about those prescription drugs....
