Kinder Eggs

In my last post, I mentioned Kinder eggs, and a few folks have asked about them. Saturday, P an I went shopping and picked up a few for your viewing pleasure.

These are kinder eggs (in German, kinder means kid/child/little one). They are wrapped in foil, and cost less than $1 each. I usually buy a bunch when they are on sale for less than 60 cent:

They are hollow chocolate eggs (the outside is brown chocolate and inside is white chocolate):

Inside the eggs, there are little capsules. Most are yellow, but I've seen white, blue and orange also (they are part of the toy):


The capsules with the pile of chocolate in the back:


Inside each capsule is a toy. Some are one piece figurines (which are VERY popular) and others require assembly. There are sets of toys, and I've seen complete sets sold a flee markets for LOTS of cashola:


Once the toys are assembled, this is what they look like:



The toys and their former homes:


What did I do with the chocolate? I used some of it to make hot cocoa for P and I. Mine is on the left, with a few ounces of Kalua added:


Uncle LeRoy's food crew decided long ago that non-food objects can not be housed inside food objects, so kinder eggs aren't to be sold on US property (they used to be sold in the commissary on base, but not any more).

P's other bottom tooth is loose, so I'll have to stock up on more eggs this week. I may need to bribe her once again.

Another school term has come to an end, and last week, I registered for the LAST class I need for my degree. With our 2 week vacation to the states in November, I hope the next 9 weeks sail by.
