Those fiddly Kinder Surprise toys hold a very near and dear place in the hearts of just about everyone’s inner child. The weird-tasting, European-style chocolate eggs that held ridiculously pointless but unassailably cool little toys inside are a dang staple of simpler time.
And though the toys themselves were finicky as hell to put together, it sure as shit would’ve been a dang sight easier if we were all tweaking our brains off.
A young lad in Northern Ireland cracked open one of the glorious chocolatey eggs recently, expecting to find another array of cheap plastic to put together inside.
But instead, when he popped open the protective plastic shell, he found a bag of meth.
No instruction paper written in half English, half Italian.
Good ole’ fashioned meth.
The small bag of powdered methamphetamine had been hidden inside the plastic toy shell, in what’s frankly a bloody ingenious method of concealing the drugs.
Absolutely bloody fortunately, the boy immediately handed the bag to his father, who then contacted police.
Local area police inspector Colin Shaw confirmed the powder was indeed meth in a short statement:
“The contents of the bag, which was found inside a toy egg, is believed to be meth amphetamine. This small quantity of drugs will be disposed of by police.”“This incident is of the uppermost concern for all of us. Tackling the use and supply of illegal drugs is a priority for us and the possibility that something so potentially dangerous has been discarded where children could find it is deeply concerning.”
For a situation that could’ve so easily have gone completely bung in a big hurry, this story has at least had a decent outcome.
And remember kids, the biggest Kinder Surprise of all? Meth is bad.
That’s our hot take.
