It is ALL about context isnt it?
You forgot about the Northern Border don't want the Canadians coming into this country either.

Haha, yeah, damn Canucks. They can keep their Kinder Eggs... oh wait, I love Kinder Eggs... Too bad we can't have them here in America- our children are too stupid to realize that the plastic toys inside aren't food.

That's not why Kinder Eggs are illegal.

Do explain. I need to know why my most beloved treat requires international travel to obtain.

Comes from out of the depression when confectioneries were adding sawdust and other inedible material to bulk up candy and cakes.

What exactly are you saying, young lady? Kinder eggs are inedible, or that the toys are no more fun than sawdust? I suppose old laws or codes like that should be amended to become more specific. I remember when the Wonder Ball was sold in most grocery stores around me, and it had toys in it at first. It had to be removed from the shelves because American kids were too stupid to understand that the plastic toys inside were not to be eaten. The Wonder Ball was returned to the shelves with edible candy inside instead of plastic toys. Same thing with the Kinder Eggs- our kids are obviously too stupid, as they have proven, to have them.

American Children: This is why we can't have nice things.

edit: besides, there are no inedible ingredients in the food portion of Kinder Eggs, so shouldn't they be allowed otherwise?

They could be allowed if the company that makes Kinder Eggs fills out a simple form.

They refuse to.

So, no Kinder Eggs. Same with Wonder Balls.

What form is this?! I am about to have a week-long break that I could fill with nothing but calling and writing the company begging them to fill out the form. I must know!

Well what's so bad about this form that makes them refuse? Surely they have a reason for not selling their products to an entire country?

Here is the reason per Yahoo.
http://voices.yahoo.com/why-kinder-e...an-545918.html
There are two reasons why these delicious treats are illegal in the U.S. One reason is the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) claims that the toys are a choking hazard for small children. All of the toys are relatively small, and some contain even tinier pieces that need to be put together. Kinder Eggs have a warning on the package, in several languages, that they are only suitable for ages three and up, which should be enough to un-ban them.

Aside from children potentially choking on the toys, the real reason Kinder Eggs are banned is the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938. This Act prohibits the embedding of non-food items completely enclosed inside food items, unless the non-edible part has a functioning value. For example a lollipop or popsicle stick is not edible but is a useful handle. This Act was originally put into place to prevent the addition of hazardous items to processed food and has never been changed.

Seems they could easily fix this problem by leaving a tiny hole in one or both ends of the chocolate egg, this making it no longer completely enclosed.

The first reason you gave basically is the same as what I said- American kids are too stupid to not eat the plastic toy. The second reason is just a technicality that can be worked around, as I suggested above.

And the companies do not want to do that.

It's just another way for somebody in Europe to say, "Look at those silly Americans."

Well they certainly don't have any shortage of reasons to say that.

Actually, I would rather they did that than armor up for a confrontation with whom? about what? Their duties only require them to interact with US citizens. Do they thing they are going to adopt policies so that they will provoke the citizenry sufficiently that they need all those MRAPs? Or do they think they're going to see an influx of Islamist terrorists in sufficient numbers they need them? If they really need them, there's a problem. If they only think they need them, there's a problem. If they don't think they need they need them, there's a problem. And, if they don't really need them, there's still a problem.

And it's a huge problem.

Methinks the Homeland Security boyz are the new Brown Shirts...remember Obamas speech about a new domestic security force "as strong as, and as well funded as our military'? The new American Police State. Do it for the children.
