On all of our Christmas trips with GCT we've purchased kinder eggs to bring home. We never realized they've been made illegal in the US. 

Below is a link to an article from our local TV news web page. It's a $2,500 fine!

Thank you for posting this.  My son-in-law just minutes ago asked me to pick up some of these for our grandchildren when we pass through Frankfurt.  We had absolutely no idea that they were illegal.

Thanks for saving us from a difficult situtation.
