Oh hell, kids are dumber than they were thirty years ago.

Oh look, yet another thread where the older generation thinks the new generation is the dumbest ever, never mind the exact same opinion was shared by every other generation before them.

I loved Kinder Surprise eggs when I lived in Europe as a kid.  I never knew why the hell they weren't in the US until today.

My favorite was a little car (assembly required) that had a little friction-inertia engine.  It was a great little lesson in mechanics and physics.  It never crossed my mind to try to eat it.

My GOD we're a lame people sometimes.

Cracker Jacks now has 'prizes' that just printed paper stuff. No plastic, rings, tokens etc.

And Americans call themselves free....but aren't allowed Kinder Eggs.

YOU PEOPLE ARE BACKWARDS BUM-NASTY FARKTARDS.

If you sharpen a stick and throw it at someone, isn't it basically the same thing?

fta: Apparently, more than 60,000 Surprise eggs are seized at the U.S. border each year with penalties up to $2,500 per egg.

Good luck with that...

Heh, I spent way too much money on eggs trying to get that toy! But I always ended up with a model of some wacky Norwegian cartoon character or something instead.

Good times.

Kinder eggs are the shiat. Everytime I hit Rewe for groceries, I always have to get two or three. Easter's the best because of the ostrich egg sized Kinder eggs that are put out. Nice to know I'll get to continue my addiction when I move back to the states.

Which, of course, is proof that we are indeed getting dumber every generation.

This article encapsules (snort) life in the US perfectly.

except no. you won't. these aren't Kinder Eggs. these are cheap knock-off Choco Treasures (made in Turkey).

so yes, it is a "surprise" chocolate egg. but it is not a Kinder Egg.

/Christmas has the giant ball ones too

Man, those things suck. You never realize how different cheap plastic toys can be until you compare a Choco-Surprise Egg with a Kinder Surprise Egg. The former has some plastic crap you need to assemble. The latter has something a little awesome you want to assemble.
 
2013-03-14 07:53:22 PM
I just assumed that Kinder eggs were available in the States. But now that I think of it I've never seen them in movies or shows, unlike most American cultural things. For example peeps; never seen one in Canada.

Anyway, I hope you folks can get real Kinder Surprises soon, and not their GoBot equivalent.
 
2013-03-14 07:55:00 PM
Meanwhile, up in Canada, they just released Kinder Eggs for girls.

Because apparently girls these days are unable to play with regular Kinder eggs? They can't figure them out? Because "boy" is the default and making special Kinder eggs means making specifically "girl" kinder eggs and not "boy" kinder eggs?

This kinda thing pisses me off. I grew up playing with regular Kinder eggs and I liked assembling the toy soldiers and cars and stuff as much as any other child.

/ get off my lawn.

As much as I enjoy pointing the finger at stupid Americans and laughing, this isn't one of those cases.

It's not the people who are too stupid for Kinder Eggs, it's their government. These are specifically designed around the exact limitations imposed by US law. I am sure that American children would be able to manage to pry apart proper eggs and assemble the toys inside as well as anyone else.

Aside from the many little piggies who will swallow the entire thing whole, of course.

I never saw Kinder Eggs, but I can tell you that at least 80% of the prizes you got from cereal snd Cracker Jacks were AWESOME!

The crap they put in currently doesn't deserve notice compared to the old stuff.

That doesn't mean it isn't true.

Those look like something you'd get at the dollar store. I had a boyfriend, years ago, who opened a Kinder Egg and replaced the toy with a nugget of bud and gave it to me. That was an awesome surprise, let me tell you. You couldn't even tell it had been opened.
 
2013-03-14 08:05:12 PM
Those are not Kinder surprise. I try to get those down here, along with Canadian Smarties.

/Stupid people are still stupid

I did not know that..
