    American Children Finally Deemed Smart Enough To Eat Kinder Eggs

    The European candy with a toy in it is finally coming to America, sort of.

    Technically, Kinder Eggs, with their glorious chocolate deliciousness, are not coming to America.

    But a New Jersey company has come up with something really close called a Choco Treasure.

    From the Choco Treasure website:

    Compare: The Choco Treasure...

    ...to the Kinder Egg

    The FDA forbids non-food items being sold inside of food items:

    The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act at Section 402(d)(1) says that a confectionery product with a non-nutritive object, partially or totally imbedded within it, cannot be sold within the United States, unless the FDA issues a regulation that the non-nutritive object has functional value and is non-injurious to health. No such regulation has been issued.

    More than 60,000 Kinder Surprises are seized at American airports a year and can carry a fine of up to $2,500 per egg.

    But the question remains, though: Are American children too dumb to not eat plastic inside of a chocolate egg?

    Well, you can be the judge of that yourself...
