To everybody's surprise, the Kinder Egg has been increasingly losing its appeal to a lot of food authorities in the world. More and more countries have been deliberating on officially banning this product. It would be best to research before thinking of bringing Kinder Eggs as souvenirs or snacks when traveling.

Everybody knows that Kinder Eggs are banned in the US. This because of the policies of the Food and Drug Association in the country that strongly bans candies with embedded toys since 1938. Toys embedded in food can become a choking hazard for children. For this very reason, since Kinder Eggs have surprise toys inside, they have been and currently still are banned in the United States.

According to a report from DW, Chile also officially bans Kinder Surprise from their country not because of the toy found in. Instead of the choking hazard of the Kinder Surprise, Chile has banned the chocolate egg because of the health risks it could give people.

The country has revised their policies regarding unhealthy food for children like those containing high amounts of sugar, salt, calories and saturated fat. They have considered the nutritional aspect of the product and has deliberated fully that Kinder Eggs are unhealthy for children. In fact, they have banned McDonald's Happy Meals as well.

A report from Independent has shown that certain chemicals that have been found in the chocolate are not only carcinogenic but mutagenic as well. A certain mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbon (MOAHs) are oily byproducts of the chocolate which can pose danger to those who have experienced excessive consumption of Kinder Surprise.

This particular find has pushed German Food Authorities to deliberate on officially banning the Kinder Egg as well. Although the outcome mostly looks like it would be going downhill, there have been no official announcements yet.
