confection originally intended for children in the form of a chocolate egg containing a small toy, frequently requiring assembly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinder_Egg
My kind mother-in-law was on her way to the states to send an Easter package to Summer. In it we asked her to send several Kinder Surprise eggs. Well, this is what makes me so upset and frustrated about the U.S. government today. They confiscated the whole lot of Kinder Surprises. Have they completely lost it? They can somehow bypass several other items that are very harmful, and some how allow toys filled with led fill our stores, but they will not allow a chocolate egg.
Part of the reason for my rant is because some of my friends back home have been politically arguing if you will through email. I think it is a little silly, but in light of them I share this post.
I just don't understand how so many people can smuggle drugs, weapons, and other suspicious items into the states, but when an innocent grandmother tries to send chocolate Easter eggs to her granddaughter they feel it might be too dangerous to enter the U.S.
To be honest I think that the officer in the booth saw them all and thought sweet, that would make a perfect gift inside my kids Easter baskets. He is probably planning on taking them home with him tonight. Or maybe he was just so hungry and could not wait for his next break, so he thought he would eat a dozen chocolate eggs, then tinker around with the toys inside while waiting for cars to come through.
Anyways, enough ranting for now, I will just fill Easter baskets with the next best thing (a plastic filled egg) :(.
