The chocolate was okay, but the main fun was the toys.  Wheeeeeeeee!  cheese

Darn the FDA. . .

I’m English, and as such I crave disappointment. That’s why I buy Kinder Surprise. Horrible chocolate; nasty little toy: a double-whammy of disillusionment! Sometimes I eat the toy out of sheer despair. I actually call them the Eggs Of Numbing Inevitability. And when I buy them, I always ask for them in the third person: “Bill Bailey would like the Eggs Of Numbing Inevitability.” It answered me back once, in a funny voice it said “But you are not Bill Bailey, you are a mere Doppelganger. I am the true Bill Bailey, from another dimension.” And I thought, Oh alright. I decided the only way to overcome this was to run very fast at my counterpart, and I was just about to hit it when I realised it was actually the highly polished side of a cheese counter.

They’ve probably just reduced the size in order to reduce the number of lawsuits from people for “causing their weight / life problems” and things of that nature. You know how nothing is anyone’s fault anymore is always on the manufacturers.

Seems like they generally make things smaller so they don’t have to raise the price, when materials become more costly.

I haven’t bought any of these in ages, mainly because my kids are grown.  Has the price of the eggs gone up also???  Anyone?

Here in Canada, at Mac’s they are $1.19 I believe, which I find kind of outrageous.

ETA: the Cadbury ones, not sure how much the Kinder Suprise ones are

Creme eggs are about 40-50p here, I think.
Kinder eggs are a lot more expensive, but I haven’t bought them in ages and ages.

Isn’t that what you are supposed to do?  I am sure it is in the vows in the small print.
