Sorry it’s been crickets here. Not much to report. The Egg is still illegal. 😉
So today I’m out shopping with the family for school shoes. (Don’t get me started on shoe shopping. I have three daughters and a husband who runs marathons. The man goes through running shoes quicker than a toddler goes through training pants. And THREE girls with THREE different shoe sizes and THREE different styles. Shoe shopping is torture.)
As we were (hallelujah) leaving, I see this:
Someone explain to me, please, how a hard-shelled, cavity starting, teeth breaking, jaw dislocating, bigger than a child’s fist piece of gum is safer than a Kinder Egg? There’s no warning label for age or mouth size or anything. The only thing between a knuckle-headed kid and these dentist calling cards is a quarter. I can’t even look at the picture without my jaw throbbing.
I want my chocolatey Egg.
Pretty sure Mr. (Miss? Mrs.?) Kabloominate isn’t using their real name. 😂 https://www.change.org/p/cpsc-remove-the-ban-on-the-ferrero-kinder-surprise-egg

We’ve uploaded two video to YouTube highlighting the differences between the Ferrero Kinder Surprise Egg and the Ferrero Kinder Joy. The shorter one can be found here and the longer video here.
The fight to legalize The Egg is in The Wall Street Journal! Here’s the link to the fantastic article written by David Marcelis. You need to be a subscriber to read it. They have a $1 for two months digital subscription available for the next day or so. 🙂 #FreeTheEgg Yay for spreading the word!
I recently had a chat with David Marcelis of the Wall Street Journal. He shared an article he wrote in 2015 about King Cakes, which are on our Violators page. King Cakes violate the 1938 law that keeps the Kinder Egg banned, but the ban isn’t really enforced with King Cakes. Why, you ask? Read Mr. Marcelis’ article. It’s great to have him in our corner!
