Re: Candy Banned in U.S.

No... In 1938, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act prohibited the embedding “non-nutritive items” in confections. This obscure law has resulted in a ban of a popular child’s treat that is sold in over 100 countries around the world. The Ferrero Kinder Egg became a part of family tradition in 1972. Its delicious chocolate shell surrounds a sealed plastic capsule which holds a small toy or puzzle. The eggs are marketed to kids ages three and up and are as widely proliferated and recognizable.
