Easter Egg Hunt with a Surprise!
While your young ones are enjoying an Easter Egg Hunt this Easter Sunday, a more surprising moment for them (or for any aviation enthusiast) would be to find a Kinder Surprise Chocolate Egg with the world’s largest airliner inside!
Ferrero Kinder Surprise is a 40-year-old tradition that has delighted millions of children with a revolutionary idea, by combining a chocolate egg, and a surprise toy. A Kinder Surprise Egg is a hollow chocolate egg around the same size as a normal hen’s egg, made from a thin layer of milk chocolate and a thin layer of white chocolate that is held inside a colorful plastic capsule containing a small toy.
Since its launch, nearly 30 billion Kinder Surprise Eggs have been sold all over the world with more than 8,000 different surprises! Every year more than 100 new toys and gadgets are featured. Kinder Surprise Eggs have a cult following in many countries, not just among children, thousands of people collect Kinder Surprise Eggs worldwide.
Back in 2010, to celebrate the launch of the Airbus A380, Ferrero developed mini versions of the A380 (1:1,000 scale) to fit inside Kinder Surprise eggs. A total of two million A380 Kinder Surprises were produced – now considered as collector’s item – bearing the logos of Star Alliance partners Lufthansa Airlines, Thai Airways and Singapore Airlines. Ferrero also offers other Airbus family aircraft inside Kinder Surprise.
While you may see the world’s largest airliner in Houston airspace, as Lufthansa Airlines fly to Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH), don’t expect to purchase the Kinder Surprise in Texas anytime soon. U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) claims that the toys are a choking hazard for small children and the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938 prohibits the embedding of non-food items completely enclosed inside food items.
