Kinder eggs were been banned in the U.S. for safety concerns in the 1930s, since children who weren’t careful ran the risk of choking on the toy inside while consuming the chocolate. Fortunately for fans, in 2017, Kinder Suprise eggs became available again in the US, because the chocolate and they toy are separate parts.
