OMIGOD! Donica had descibed this to me over the phone a couple weeks ago but seeing is believing. She had this Kinder "Egg" waiting for me here in Hannover when I arrived yesterday and watched as I unwrapped it, piece by piece.
Mouse over for the before and after.
First of all, in case you don't know this by now, Germany is host to the World Cup soccer/fussbol games this summer. There are 12 cities circling the country where the games will be played, starting June 9th. In fact, Donica was able to get tickets for us to the Italy-Ghana game here in Hannover on June 12th, the day before my birthday. Talk about a birthday memory!
So, rising to the challenge, the maker of the Kinder Eggs, Ferrero, has produced these Kinder Fan-Balls in honor of the games. It looks like there are a potential of 5 "surprises" in them, one of which is the Germany flag-pouch in the above mouse-over photo.
That is one humdinger of a giant uberraschung/chocolate "egg" and capsule, if you ask me. In all pics I have included a regular-sized Kinder Egg surprise capsule so you can compare the sizes. Oh, and BTW, we're talking about a difference in price of €0.55 as opposed to €5.99 ($.70 vs. $7.65)!
Just when we thought they couldn't get any more exciting!
