Yes, I broke down and did it. On day 96, like many Brazilians, I filled my shopping cart with large chocolate eggs complete with toys inside. Yes, the quality of the chocolate is probably lower than the Dead Sea. Yes, the toys inside would probably be considered a choking hazard in most countries. But ask me how much Brazilian kids love and expect this crap? Answer: a lot.
Here’s the irony. I bought these things for my nephews (and my daughter so not to feel left out) in anticipation of spending the holiday with them. But our plans changed and now I’m left with a small inventory. So what do you do with a supply of Ovo de Pascoas?
Thinking of shipping them to the U.S. Wonder if these chocolate surprises would make it through customs… (see Holy Egg Mania)
