i've heard that's because they find the plastic egg inside of chocolate non appropriate due to hygienic standards

btw what is the price of Kinder Surprise at your countries? here it costs cca 0,9-1€.
(btw my favourite Kinder thing is Milchschnitte. i think i could eat 30 pieces of them at once )

So they don't have any sort of Easter egg with surprise in America?

I saw in a Carreffour supermarket the grape-flavoured Fanta. I never saw it in Italy. It was produced in Chisinau and the label was all in Rumanian.

A friend of mine was in Malta and he found there Joe products, which we thought are only found in Romania.

Regarding the surprise egg, the big one (from my photo) was 2,99€, and the small and usual one is 0,99€.

Let's assume that you want to get to Constanta. Which way do you take? Left or right?



Picture taken by me last week here.

i would take the right turn - the sign looks newer

probably you can take both directions and they merge somewhere. we have such situation in my hometown: which way to take to Garešnica? answer is: both are ok. they will merge after some 30 km.

As far as I know, quite much less, about 0,75€.

It's because it contains small plastic pieces that can be a choking hazard.

It's fascinating to see that piece of paper with warning in so many languages...
