Men Threatened With $15,000 Fine for Bringing Canadian Candy Home to Kids

Kinder surprise, FacebookTwo Seattle men were traveling back into the states after their vacation in Canada and were stopped at the border. After being asked the usual questions, the men were accused of bringing illegal substances into the country. Not drugs or weapons… but candy!

Kinder Surprise is a popular Canadian treat that is a chocolate egg with a toy inside. It’s illegal in the United States and carries a $2,500 fine for each candy found. It’s supposedly illegal because the candy contains a “non-nutritive object imbedded.”

The men didn’t know they were breaking the law and were forced to endure nearly three hours of questioning before being let go with a warning. Even after all this the candy was never taken away. The men describe their experience as a “waste of time, money & agents.”
