Every now and then I get a Kinder Surprise Egg… or “Kinder-Überraschung” from this little German store I know of. They completely totally rock! Charlotte with her German background first introduced them to me. If you ever get the chance to get or give one, do so!
They are like Cracker Jacks, only the “secret toy surprise in the pack” is fantastic instead of kinda sucky. Everyone likes chocolate. Whenever I mention them to Germans, they dismissively say, “Oh, those are just for children.” But when I gave one to our waiter at Walzwerk in San Francisco, her eyes lit up like a little girl at Christmas. :-)
