If you're here for the toy grab an egg, if you're here for the chocolate grab a bar!

Advantages: toy inside, kids love them, tasty
Disadvantages: not cheap for a small bit of chocolate and cheap toy which will soon loose its novelty
During my childhood i was a kinder egg fiend, I loved the chocolate and I loved the toy. When I was around 7 me and my Mother went to Wimpy and we were a certain number customer meaning we won a gigantic kinder egg, it was a great day for me!
Most people are familar with the Kinder Suprise wrapper- They are wrappd in foil which is white with an orange bottom. The words Kinder SUPRISE are printed on the white portion.
These days I satisfy my Kinder cravings with a Kinder Bar- they taste basically the same as a Kinder Suprise but for a cheaper price (I've picked them up for between 20-30p) and for more chocolate. The downside (if you're a child) is that it doesn't contain a toy. These are very moreish and I've eaten 3+ in one sitting on many occasions!
The egg is made up of two semi circles of chocolate which come apart easily. There is a yelow plastic shell inside the chocolate, this contains the toy. The nice thing about these toys is there are a great range so you probably won't end up with lots of multiples. Sometimes the toys are solid, others you put together.
The ingredients are as follows:
Fine milk chocolate 47% (sugar, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, emulsifier: lecithins (soya); vanillin), skimmed milk powder, sugar, vegetable fat, concentrated butter, emulsifier: lecithins (soya), vanillin. Total milk solids 32% - Total cocoa solids: 15%
They contain 116 calories & 7g of fat (20g egg).
They're not extremely cheap, they usually retain between 60-80p depending on where you get them from. However children love them. They are not advised for children under 3 because of the small parts. When my child is old enough I definitly shall buy him one of these as a treat!
I have heard they have been banned in america as it goes against a certain law that non food items should not be contained inside food items. Thats a great shame as I dont see a way around that for a Kinder Egg. Hopefully the same sort of thing won't happen here!
Summary: Lovely for kids, they definitly were something I remember from my childhood.
