Our wonderful government regulating what we can and can't have. Sometimes I wish I could move to Canada.

I always read that they're illegal in the US, but I've bought them. I spot them sometimes at different import stores. I don't really enjoy the chocolate or need the toys, so they're not something I keep an eye out for, but I have purchased them in the past.

OMG WTHay!!! I had no idea they where illegal and I once send some in a swap box for an American swap partner. Good thing they went through customs. Being from Europe I already find USA weird, but they still manage to surprise me, amuse me and make me roll my eyes XD

I remember the wonder ball! I loved getting them, I was obsessed especially since all the toys inside were disney! I still have some of them. The lion king set was my favorite

Out of curiosity (yeah, never had a Kinder Surprise egg before), especially after seeing an Ashens review on it, I bought one yesterday just to see what all the fuss was about.

I think the Malaysian version of the egg would be much more acceptable in the US. It's shell splits neatly in half, with one half of the shelf having the chocolate, and the other half having the toy. Both halves are separated by a pair of plastic seals.

Also, I just noticed: for some reason, the egg is called a Kinder Joy egg over here.

Do you know in Scotland it is "illegal to be drunk and in charge of a cow"?

That's really funny, here in Minnesota, the only things that are legal to ride when intoxicated are a non-motorized vehicle like a bicycle, or a horse because it can steer itself.

We did have chocolate balls filled with prizes when I was little. Usually little tart candies but I think sometimes it was other things too. They were called Wonderballs. I guess the aforementioned risk of choking got them banned.

I remember when wonder balls used to have toys inside.  I had no idea that's illegal here. :(
