We aren’t a family who has dessert every night, we don’t believe in buying candy with each grocery shop and I DO read the ingredient label on everything we consume. We absolutely believe that the healthier the food you put into your body is, the healthier your body will be and the better you’ll feel.
That being said, we are not treat nazis. Corey being a chocolate and ice cream connoisseur loves to share a special treat with our girls from time to time, and who am I to stand in the way? (Ok, I like a little bite or two of the treats too when I’m allowed to eat them) My only rule is that it be made with quality ingredients, be eaten in moderation (no King Size bars for these girls!) and it needs to be something they all enjoy.
Enter Kinder Surprise!
They are made with high quality cocoa, real sugar and have that white milky inside, are peanut free and have no ingredients I’m allergic to – meaning I can have one too! Best of all when you crack it open inside is a special toy – making the double treat (chocolate & toy) of a Kinder Surprise an absolute favourite in this house.
I think one of the things that makes Kinder such a special treat for both the kids and us is that it means we take time to stop. Not only are the kids eating and enjoying a special chocolate, but we’re sitting with them to build and play with another new toy. Life can get so busy sometimes around here that we forget that it’s those little moments, playing in the backyard, reading a story, tickle fights before bed and sharing a Kinder Surprise, that are important. Our kids are growing up too fast, time so often feels like it’s going at warp speed, and we all need to stop and just enjoy each other more often.
That’s why I am so excited to announce that I have joined partnered with Kinder Canada to be a part of their Kinder Mom ambassador program! I’m getting the inside scoop and so are you! There will be chocolate nibbling, toy building and a lot fun having happening around these parts – it’s gonna be fantastic!
Now here’s the BIG NEWS Kinder is re-launching in Canada! They’ll have the same great chocolate, the same fun shape, but the toy inside will be like nothing you’ve ever found in a Kinder Surprise before! The new 2012 toy collection has 70 (that’s right 70!) new, never seen before toys to enjoy with our families. Everything from a 22cm giraffe (seriously that is HUGE for inside a Kinder Egg) to inflatable toys, are included, taking the fun to a whole new level.
Don’t believe me (because really a 22cm giraffe inside an egg that is far from 22cm tall? Not possible….or is it?), that’s ok. You can head over to the Kinder Canada Facebook page, LIKE them and see for yourself. You’ll find a sneak peak of the 2012 collection, a place to get FREE chocolate (coming soon) and other Kinder goodness…
I have a feeling this is going to be one, sweet partnership!“Disclosure: I’m part of the Kinder® Mom program and I receive compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.”
