Kinder’s chocolate eggs are banned in the US. Enter the Kinder-egg smuggler

Since 1974, an incredible 30 billion Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs have been sold, making them one of the most beloved sweet treats in the world. Despite their popularity, Kinder eggs are banned in the United States – due to the small, collectable toys inside, they’re considered potential choking hazards under US law. A most unusual criminal portrait, Andrew Rodger’s Crooked Candy profiles a Bulgarian-born Kinder Surprise-egg smuggler, driven by a nostalgic love of the chocolate treat and its trinkets inside.
