        How about we continue our theme of scary confections?
      The video linked above is an advertisement for Kinder Surprise Eggs. The eggs, manufactured by an Italian company, contain a “surprise” toy embedded in chocolate. Humpty Dumpty there seems incredibly pleased to find the toy in his candy egg. So much so, the inevitable occurs. It is difficult to sympathize because of what a terrifying abomination this Humpty Dumpty is.
     Seriously.  Humpty Dumpty probably did more to promote childcare’s nightmares than sell candy.
       American children do not have anything to fear. Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned in the United States because of the embedded toy. All candies with embedded toys have been banned by the Federal Food and Drug Administration since since 1938 because of the choking hazard. But thanks to YouTube and me, the mental image is now scarred upon your brain forever.
