Just in time for the holiday season, Kinder Joy eggs are finally arriving here in the states! The best news you've heard all day? We agree!!
I can hear all the kids cheering now... their favorite surprise egg treats are no longer something they can only devour while on an international vacation or envy from children abroad posting their videos on youtube; which my kids are obsessed with! Kinder Joy surprise eggs will be in all our grocery store aisles for good!
Already sold in over 170 countries worldwide, many of us have grown up on them. Seeing how they've evolved is fascinating. Originally, the treat was a hard chocolate shell with a surprise inside. However, due to FDA regulations, this has been banned since the Food and Drug Administration formed back in 1938 because of the potential choking hazard.
Today, this iconic treat is sold with two individually wrapped halves that are adhered together to form the egg. Totally separated! One side of the egg is filled with a soft creamy layer, one milk-crème flavored and one cocoa flavored and that is topped with two chocolate wafer bites. It's divine if you have never had one, you are totally missing out! The velvety smooth base mixed with the crunch of the wafer is perfection. Or eat it how my kids like to by starting with eating the wafers then eat the cream separately.
The other half has a small plastic spoon and inside a small toy.
The most magical part of this treat is the surprise! I know all the kids will agree that the excitement and joy of discovering what toy they've received is unparalleled! I have to say I am excited to hear that they have over 40 toys that will be updating often. So the joy and excitement will never dull. The small toy comes in pieces and the kids get to build it themselves. My kids love this part too, figuring it out as they go along. All part of the thrill and charm!
Plus, the toys are so unique! Brinkley's favorite, a wizard shaped plastic toy that she discovered under his hat doubles has a red crayon. How amazing right? There are also mini bikes, cars, balls, dolls just to name a few. I also heard there were some licensing deals happening which means more exciting toys to come!
