Afternoon Delight

Today - I get to have an awesome snack after lunch. Check it out:

So a lady from work recently went to, and came back from, England for about a week and a half.

Well, she's a pretty cool lady, and she brought us all back little surprises: Kinder Eggs!!

If you don't know what these are, they are like the Cracker Jacks of the 21st century!! Okay maybe not, but they're awesome! See the picture on the right? Yeah - that's what they look like when you get them. And little foil-wrapped egg shape.

So you open it, and there unfolds the 1st surprise - it's CHOCOLATE!! And not just like "whatever" chocolate, I mean like YUMM-O chocolate!! And it's like two layers - milk chocolate, followed by white-chocolatey goodness. Hmm Hmm Good!

BUT WAIT - there's more!!

Upon biting into the egg (don't take a big bite - you may get hurt), you discover the 2nd surprise: There's a THING inside!!! See next picture below:

Yep - it's pretty awesome! So you continue eating the chocolatey goodness while you inspect your "thing", and come to find out - it OPENS! And I don't just mean it opens and closes - I mean it opens your eyes to a whole new WORLD of endless possibilities!!

Here is a safe way of "disecting" your Kinder Egg...

Okay - now there could be any NUMBER of thinds inside of your Kinder Egg - figurines, puzzles, etc - but be sure to check them out, when you get the chance.

The only hurdle: they come from Germany. And IF you find them for sale here in the US, they are usually kind've expensive. But I PROMISE they will provide at LEAST 15 good SOLID minutes of entertainment!!

I LOVE Kinder Eggs. I make my boss bring me some from London whenever he has to come this side of the pond. I'm gathering quite a collection of the little toys *grin*

I was told that the candy shop in Arundel Mills used to sell them. But apparently they're not allowed in the States anymore. "Choking hazard" they say. "LAME!" says I.

LOL... I feel your pain.

I have one last Kinder Egg in my fridge now. I'm treasuring it until I can hold out no longer.
