This post is sponsored by Kinder, a brand I’m super excited to share with you all since they’ve been our special treat for years.
Scroll to the bottom to enter my Kinder Joy USA giveaway!
This time of year can be especially busy with the holiday bustle and to dos to check off the list, but for my kids I always make an effort to slow down and appreciate the simple joys of the season. I love spending one-on- one time with each of my kids and creating the kind of moments that you don’t forget as a parent or as a child.
When Kinder Joy USA first approached me in helping them announce their US launch, I literally could not contain my excitement. Rewind to years ago before we even had kids, I discovered the Kinder brand when Adrian brought back one of their treats as a souvenir from his business trip to Germany. I only recently learned of the story behind the brand though and loved learning about how Kinder treats actually came to be. Kinder was first conceived in 1969 by Ferrero founder, Mr. Michele Ferrero, who wanted to create products that met the needs of both moms and kids. Moms wanted high-quality ingredients, portion control and a delicious taste that their kids loved. Kids of course wanted great taste and a fun experience. And thus the Kinder brand was born, combining these two elements for a unique experience that both moms and kids can share!
While the Kinder brand is sold in 170 countries and is one of the most popular chocolate brands in the world, they are finally making their US debut this month (November) and I literally could not wait to put in my Kinder Joy USA order to share with my little ones!
Dylan instantly recognized the Kinder Joy USA egg when I showed it to him as he’s seen them on YouTube clips before (they’re seriously one of his favorite videos to watch whenever I let him have a few minutes of screen time!). You can tell that he was just as excited as I was when I gave him the Kinder Joy treat!
Dylan was literally almost drooling as he opened his treat! 😂 Each Kinder Joy USA egg is packaged in a plastic casing and comprised of two sealed halves. One half contains two soft creamy layers, one milk-creme flavored one and one cocoa flavored. Nestled into the creamy layers are two round, chocolate-covered wafer bites that are filled with sweet cocoa cream. A small plastic spatula-like spoon is included in the packaging and makes for a delicious self-contained snack that even I wanted a bite of! Kinder Joy USA combines the delicious taste of Kinder on one side, with a surprise toy inside the other — it’s two times the joy in every experience!
Dylan quickly went to work opening the other half of the Kinder Joy USA to reveal his surprise! The Kinder Joy treats have over 40 different toys, with the toys being updated regularly. Designed for children ages 3 and up, each toy is well explained and simple enough that Dylan was able to put his together completely on his own! Ours was a small white panther that was able to be launched to knock down one of three paper targets — I loved the creativity and Dylan had such a fun time figuring out how to best aim at his different targets!
Newly launched is the Magic Kinder App as Kinder has designed a digital world of playful learning to help families play and learn together. In it are options to play and learn (Dylan loved the math problems using cars!), spaces to draw/paint, listen to stories, and of course a daily surprise that you’d expect with Kinder Joy USA! The app is targeted for ages 3-10 years old and was actually developed with input from elementary school teachers to consider all aspects of child development. It’s a free app with no sneaky in-app purchases or branding either!
The Kinder brand is all about creating moments of togetherness and I couldn’t be happier to share the joy of Kinder with my little ones. The holidays are all about bringing back that sense of magic and wonder in the world. Nothing does it better than being able to relive that moment in your kids’ eyes as open a Kinder Joy egg and experience the surprise! Be sure to pick one up today and take time to slow down. Kinder Joy is available in the US (finally!! 😁) at your favorite store so be sure to pick up a few. Create those memories you and your kids will remember forever!
I want to share the Kinder Joy excitement with you all and am hosting a giveaway for up to 6 Kinder Joy eggs! Enter via the widget below and thank you so much for your support!

Thank you Rita!
I have never heard of Kinder. I’ll have to check it out! From what it sounds like, Lucca will enjoy this. I have been at least reading your blog for a year 1 1/2 and it’s amazing to see the transformation that your babies have taken in such a short amount of time. That’s why I agree with you about spending that 1-on-1 time as much as possible. I just got my son’s preschool photo today and I just about cried. Just looking at the photo and realizing he is growing up and not a baby anymore that can do some tugging on the heart. I hope you are having a great week!
I feel the same way, Maureen! It’s so crazy how fast these kids grow up and I was looking at pictures of my “baby” girl just the other day and thinking that she looks like such a big girl now too (wahhh!). thank you so much for reading my blog and it’s always so wonderful to hear from my readers! I’m planning on doing a 12 Days of Giving series here starting this Friday to give back to my amazing readers so check back then! I’d love to have you win!! 🙂

I grew up eating Kinder Surprise eggs and still eat a few other Kinder treats (not entirely geared for children hahaha. Can’t remember the name, but soooooo damn good). I can’t believe they’re only hitting US shores now! What?! How have you managed all this time hehehe!
Hahah that is so awesome!! It was always such a treat when my husband would come home with them after traveling!!
He is so sweet and adorable! He looks so happy 🙂

So my best friend is from Switzerland, and we used to joke all the time about how sad it was that Kinder Joy wasn’t available in the US because she LOVES them and I had never had any. Now I can finally get some and tell her I’ve tried them! Thanks for sharing this. I just texted her the news and she was so excited haha!
This is too cute! What a great gift!
So cute! It isn’t the holidays without some Kinder eggs!
