Eggciting

Manufactured by the Italian confectioner Ferrero International you will find this chocolate placed near the billing counter at least in Chennai at all large retail outlets

Kinder Joy is an egg shaped pack of delight for Anush. When opened the egg, splits into two sealed parts - one holds chocolate and the other a small assemble-able toy.

It is similar to the Ferrero rocher ball chocolates but a smaller duo in a bed of custard or cream I am not sure, btw the egg chocolate doesn’t contain egg,

I ration it once a week lest it becomes an addiction

At Rs 30 is costlier except that you cannot value the surprise/ thrill factor of the game

Does Anush do the game first or eat first? What do you think?


And yes, here is a disturbing bit of news.... if it is the usual ado by Americans( like the current non issue about Obama bowing ) then okay- else definitely a need for us to re think!!

They're common return gifts. I get nervous abt 'imported' chocs after that whole Chinese milk pwdr contamination with melamine. I try to prevent my kids from eating anything but Indian chos, and pray that that milk pwdr didn't get into these also:(

Please check the disturbing news. These Americans/westerners have a way of dumping their discarded stuff in third world countries. we don't want kids falling sick do we?

We get Kinder Surprise here. where the toy is inside the chocolate egg. If Anush is anything like Ashu, I think she ll like the toy more than the chocolate. :)

My son when he was 2 yrs used to refer it as "surprise" the way the mom says in ad and it stuck. So, recently when we went to landmark my husband asked for surprise and the reaction of the girl at the counter was priceless . Athavida my hubbys valinjals was extra-ordinary (after i told its name)

Based on this, I think they are ok for Anush's age group
