    Sorta. Toys inside of chocolate. The Kinder eggs got banned long ago due to choking hazards (parents usually never look at the warning labels). However, others like it such as Yowie and Choco Treasure can still be bought in stores. Hypocrisy at it's best.

    I'd rather states just leave it be, if consumers have the power to sway companies from shady practices, then they should do so, not complain about it, but buy it anyway. I'm not a fan of state or federal government micro-managing things, so I don't want them involved.

    Our country has had a history of doing this. One example: Have you ever heard of the Whiskey Tax during the days of the George Washington Presidency? It's not pretty.
