Absurd travel story: Woman fined for chocolate egg

I know Kinder chocolate has never been popular in the US, but apparently Kinder did sell their chocolate surprise eggs for a while.  The US deemed them a safety hazard since a child could choke on the toy inside or break their teeth.

Fast forward a few months to the US-Canada border.  A woman was selected for search and US CBP found the contraband and fined her $300.

Stupid stuff like this is why I don’t bother bringing anything back from Canada when I’m there for business.  If I’m flying then I will buy stuff after US Preclearance, but when I drive I don’t purchase anything to bring back.  It makes it easier that way.
