A few months ago, we put together a list of nine foods that you'll won't find on the menu or in stores in Idaho or California.

There were a few things on that list that we're very grateful are illegal here. Like the world's most dangerous cheese, Casu Mazu? It's made using maggot eggs and people don't eat the cheese until after the maggots hatch. They're very much still in the cheese when people sink their teeth into it. We never thought we'd meet a cheese we didn't like, but even if this one was legal in the United States we'd say "hard pass."

Those are Kinder Joy eggs, a totally different product. Kinder Surprise Eggs are made of chocolate and have a toy inside. Kinder Joy eggs are plastic. Each side is sealed to keep the chocolate treat separate from the non-edible toy.
