Legal Lite – Border Patrol Detain Men Over Illegal Chocolate Kinder Eggs

Kinder Eggs seemed like a perfect gift for family and friends so Chris Sweeney and Brandon Loo bought a few to bring back to Seattle without knowing they were illegal.

Kinder Eggs, also known as Kinder Surprise, consist of a chocolate egg wrapped around a small toy or prize. The eggs are legal in Canada but have never been permitted into the U.S. because of safety concerns.
