Looks tasty and fun, doesn't it? Now, who knows if the little imbecile is going to be able to figure out NOT to eat the foil! (You know, I had a dog that ate a whole basket of those little foil wrapped eggs at Easter time once. But the key to that story is that she was a DOG! She was also crapping little multi-colored tin things for weeks.) They probably shouldn't come wrapped in anything AT ALL! You know, "just in case". But I digress. So, that's the Kinder Surprise Egg before it's unwrapped. Now, here is the Kinder Surprise Egg, unwrapped and cut in half with the toy inside. I'm going to make the picture really big so you can try to tell the difference between the "toy" and the "food". It's very subtle and you, like the idiot children running amok around Germany, might not be able to differentiate between the two and just gulp the whole damn thing down at one time because you just couldn't figure it out. I'm just trying to give you a head start here. Ready? Behold!
So you can see why she's concerned, right? NO!! Of course not! Are you freaking kidding me?!?!
This woman is worried that children can't tell the difference IN THAT PICTURE between which is the TOY and which is the FOOD?? Since WHEN?! Oh, wait. That's right. Since NEVER! And this woman knows that, as she followed up that moronic statement with, "We just want to prevent a worst-case scenario wherein a child could choke on a toy out of a combination product like this one." I see. So because something MIGHT happen, let's just make sure that it never does and BAN whatever it is that has a scintilla of potential to be dangerous? That seems rather extreme. How about this instead? How about you just teach your child the difference between food and toys and call it a day? OR better yet, assume that if your child does bite down on the hard, yellow, encapsulated toy, that he or she will think, "Why, hey....this doesn't taste like chocolate. I think it might not be food after all! I do not think I will continue trying to eat this. Oooh! But it does appear to open up into a little toy that looks like loads of fun! I shall play with it instead and eat the yummy chocolate shell that it came in."
I'd assume that the commission might think about that novel idea (you know, the one about actually teaching your child something or allowing some Darwinian principles to do their thing, instead of just removing the scenario in which danger may rear it's ugly head) but they're pretty busy these days. See, they're also looking into at mandating that children wear bicycle helmets (ironic, considering the commission members themselves are the ones that need helmets.) and, brace yourself, making schoolbooks lighter so children don't injure themselves or tire themselves out carrying them around all day. Oh. My. God.
