US Border Surprise!
Canadian threatened with $300.00 fine (brown print = link to story) for attempting to entering US with $2.00 Kinder Surprise chocolate egg. US Border Guards told her the egg was banned in the US because it was a choke hazard for children 3 and under. The surprise is, Kinder Eggs are not listed on the Homeland Security site list of items you are not allowed to bring into the US.
So...Kinder Eggs are considered too dangerous to allow into the US, but in the United States I can get an AK-47 free when I buy a new car!
