I've noticed a distinct lack of them. Many years ago as a kid I used to have them in england and then when I came to Canada they didn't seem around and then a few years back (5?) they started to hit store shelves in a big way and I grew an intense addiction to them. I've cranked through very very many over the last several years. The chocholate is AWESOME.

i am a cashier at a grocery store in NY, and yes we have something like these... little toys inside the chocolate ball, not called kinder suprise eggs, though.

and you dont get to put the toys together, they are just there

Nope. Spent a while looking for them also before I realized they didn't have them at all. Then I went looking for Hostess Party Mix....well...lets say it all went downhill from there.
