Thanks to a law banning candy that contains "non-nutritive objects," Kinder Surprise eggs were long prohibited in the United States. The toy they contained was considered an unacceptable risk.

A wrapper separates the two, and that apparently suffices to make the product acceptable to the American nanny state.
