    Whats with Kinder Eggs these days?!?

    The only 'surprise' I found was lack of a decent toy. It was some pre-formed plastic octopus crap. I remember the days when you used to build proper things, like a bike or a replica car (which I'm sure I could sit in). Plus, the eggs were so much bigger!

    I had to buy another 3 just to check! In all but one, it was some pre-formed junk - the other 'surpsise' I had to 'assemble' had 3 parts. Top middle and bottom!

    Sorry. Rant over.

    Choc still tastes gooooood!

    Because you and your hands have grown since "the days" which makes you perceive them smaller 8)

    Ah the ads..."It's three surprises in one"

    What are they?

    1) It has something inside but what it will be is not known - fair enough

    2)

    3)

    Yeah, just like I thought, it's one surprise.

    If they are crap here in the UK then try and get one abroad!

    I'm sure if you went over to Afghanistan and purchased one there you would get a sadistic choice of Bin Laden head knocker, 'Jihad' keychain fob or even a 'build it yourself' rocket propelled grenade launcher!

    2 is definately a susrprise, not only that but a big disapointment too.
    1 is the same as 2. It's a chocolate thing item that's not a surprise.

    Which is strange as they're not British.

    And judging by this page http://www.magic-kinder.com/mkv2/changeLanguage.html quite and international selling company.

    Re: Whats with Kinder Eggs these days?!?

    The last time I bought a Kinder Egg was during a two week vacation in Amsterdam with a group of friends where we were all staying in a holiday flat. As the one most capable of finding his face I was sent on a late night shopping run for vital supplies. I returned with a massive slab of marble cake, 6 Kinder Eggs, two bottles of diet coke and a couple of large chips that i bought from a kebab shop I accidentally wandered into.

    I never consumed one of the Kinder Eggs however, as I was too busy with my wonderful discovered combination of Jam sandwiched between two small slices of cake. I couldn't work out why noone had thought of this before.

    Ah, memories....

    Re: Whats with Kinder Eggs these days?!?

    I can't remember what was in them, other than the general consensus was that they weren't as good as they used to be.
    Also Wagon Wheels used to be bigger,
    Wotsits used to be cheesier,
    and we all missed red smarties.

    Then someone found a copy of Fantasia in the video library, and I listened to Pink Floyd on my iPod whilst it was on, and discovered that whilst it didn't sync in a Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz style, the colour of saxaphone (in shine on you crazy diamond) is green.
