My sister in law went to Germany a month ago a brought back a couple of goodies to share. One of the items she brought back for the kids were kinder joy eggs. I don't think I've ever been so excited to see a piece of candy before. Let me explain, a few years back I learned about Kinder eggs through a blog (can't remember which one or I would tell you). What I also learned about the Kinder egg was that they are banned in the US due to the small toy that can be a choking hazard. So every year around Easter a small part of me has been coveting these eggs.
So now, finally, I get to see what all the hype is about. These eggs are slightly different than the Kinder surprise eggs which are the ones I've seen online. Below are few pictures of the eggs.
First you open the egg in half. I love how the little spoon looks like the silhouette of a child. I'm not sure if that's what it's supposed to look like but that's what it looks like to me.
In one half of the egg is this candy. Curious what it tastes like? Me too. It was such a small amount that I didn't make the kids share with me. Honestly, I was just happy to see the eggs.
The other half had this little toy in it. I thought the toy was okay. In the past, I've seen some really neat toys that people got in their Kinder eggs so I guess I was expecting a little bit more.
Have any of you seen the Kinder eggs before? Tried one? Got something cool in it? Curious.
On a side note, sorry there was no craft this week. Things have been a little hectic so I just haven't had much time to make anything.
