Kinder Surprise: Adorable, inexpensive, delicious chocolate eggs with a plastic egg and collectible toy inside.
Available almost anywhere in the world except for the United States.
They are banned for sale or import and even a small amount for "personal use" triggers a large fine and confiscation at the border.
Why are they banned? Because the US bans any food that fully encapsulated a non-food item, as a choking hazard.
Tell the government that Americans aren't stupid, we can manage to discover the egg-sized prize egg without choking on it. We don't need a nanny state to police our novelty chocolate consumption.
Everyone else in the world, including children over the age of three, enjoy these treats, why can't we?
Walmart is a widely known company, with countless people going through its doors daily. While they sell free-range eggs online, they only carry the product in select stores.
Free-range eggs are a step towards eliminating the cruelty to egg-laying hens, eliminating the battery cages they are normally in. While a free-range remains frowned upon for being not much better than the battery cage lifestyle, we are requesting that Walmart sell these eggs in ALL stores, not just select ones and online, in hopes that people will take interest in the product and do some research on it.
It is our hopes that in this research, they learn about the cruelty in the egg industry and take steps towards adopting a more compassionate diet.
We also would like to encourage Walmart to carry vegetarian and vegan food options in the freezer section of ALL stores, not just a certain few. With the growing number of vegetarians and vegans out there, we would like this company to set a good example by providing them with more options.

The Beirut City Center, by Joseph Phillipe Karam, a prominent modernist Lebanese architect of the 60s, is an egg shaped theater / cinema in downtown Beirut.
Its design is a symbol of modern design foresight and a testament to Lebanese talent and architecture.
Now, with the Beirut downtown area renovation and reconstruction, this milestone of Lebanese design is on death-row, making space for the new 600 million dollar Beirut Gate project.
