Kinder egg history

Kinder Joy is an egg-shaped chocolate product which comes with a toy sold by Italian confectionery maker Ferrero as a part of its Kinder brand. Ferrero is the second largest confectionery company in the world in terms of sales. Kinder Joy was originally launched in Italy in 2001 but only introduced to the U.S. market in 2018. The original Kinder egg chocolate is Kinder Surprise. First released in 1974, Kinder Surprise contains a toy within a chocolate shell. Kinder Joy, on the other hand, comes in a plastic eggshell with the candy and toy separated. Kinder Surprise is banned in the United States due to Consumer Product Safety Commission and Food and Drug Administration regulations which stipulate that food with non-nutritive objects embedded within them are illegal.
