A Kinder Surprise egg is a hollow, egg-shaped chocolate candy for children that houses a plastic capsule containing a small toy. The chocolate shell has a thin exterior layer of milk chocolate and a thin interior layer of white chocolate. It comes wrapped in foil.
The Italian chocolate company Ferrero manufactures Kinder Surprise, which they first introduced in 1974. Kinder Surprise is illegal in America, as the FDA considers the small parts of the toys a choking hazard for children, as of 2015. The people at Ferraro assert that they design their Kinder toys to comply with international regulations, as well as their own strict safety standards.
