Americans are big fans of chocolate
A study conducted between 2010 and 2012 by the site Candy USA, showed that 9 out of 10 Americans regularly buy chocolate. 10% of American adults eat this delicious treat on a daily basis, with a strong preference swinging towards milk chocolate. In fact, only 15% of people 18-44 years old and 29% of people over 45 pick dark chocolate. Among hardcore chocolate lovers, women make up 57% of consumers. According to the London-based market research firm Euromonitor, the United States ranks 15th among countries when it comes to chocolate consumption. The average American eats 12.8 lbs. of chocolate every year.
Kinder Surprise is prohibited in the United States
Maybe you knew it already, but it is true, the beloved Kinder Surprise is banned from the shelves of American candy stores. The prohibition dates from 1938, when the Federal Food Drug and Comestic Act became law. Both institutions decided that it should be against the law to sell any chocolate candy containing a toy. The goal was to limit accidents, especially incidents of children choking after swallowing the toy. You might think that this position is outdated, but you would be wrong. In 2012, the same organization reinforced the ban, and the maximum fine if you are caught selling one is 2,500 US Dollars!
