Kinder Surprise

I’ve been seeing Kinder Bueno chocolate bars in Manila, but never the Kinder Surprise. So when I read Peter Moore’s Vroom with a View, where he went through several Kinder Surprises to get the elusive green Vespa, the first question that came to my mind was, where can I get one?

I chanced upon a stack of Kinder Surprises inside a milkbar in Lancefield.

Picking up one, I made a silent prayer that inside is a little green Vespa.

It wasn’t. It was a green airplane, which is fitting I think, given my near-obsessive fascination over the Airbus A380 lately.

Of course, thinking of Kinder Surprises and green Vespas made me think of Peter Moore so I headed on to his website to see what he’s up to lately. Great timing, I should say, as he’s scheduled to launch his latest book, Vroom by the Sea on the 21st of Novembe here in Melbourne. I may have missed The Cat Empire in Australia yet again, but I’m not letting this one pass. Hopefully, I can figure out how find that bookstore before the launch…

    How did I miss this? LOL…

    When we were in Germany, they sold these in all the stores, but they were prohibited in the U.S., so we weren’t allowed to mail these. Choking hazard for kids. I wonder what else they have stuffed inside these chocolate eggs?
