Crooked Candy2014

  • 3.7
Kinder Surprise eggs are enormously popular all around the world. From the foil wrapper to the chocolate shell, the plastic yolk capsule to the clever toy inside, Kinder eggs are practically a global rite of childhood. That is, except in the United States, where they're considered a choking hazard and are illegal. This is the story of a Kinder smuggler.

Who knew? Smuggling in Kinder eggs from Canada? They do look cute though.

Not a very provocative dilemma for most people, but a personal story that does raise a couple of questions about adults failing to find solutions to making conditions safe for everybody, namely children, while instead they focus on their own individual needs.

Great short, I cannot believe they are illegal in the United States. The Kinder eggs remember me to my childhood.

Smuggler with a heart of gold

Really liked the short. They should do a follow up on the Kinder "choking hazard" ban in the US.

I watched Crooked Candy because I was fortunate enough to live in Europe and have my fair share of Kinder Eggs. It would seems strange to someone who has never had the pleasure of unwrapping, eating and discovering what toy you have gotten, if they have never been through the ritual yourself. Brought back found memories.

A nice short film, filled me with nostalgia. Would have welcomed a bit more detail on how the toys offered have evolved -- maybe my memory is hazy but I remember more complicated things like cars and planes and not so many figurines when I was a child.
