It may be too soon to talk about holiday presents, but it's always the right time to discuss chocolate. Specifically we focus on the perennial favorite Kinder Eggs, which, though banned in the United States as a choking hazard, are embraced in other parts of the world.

Kinder Eggs are produced by the Italian company Ferrero, also the guys behind those faux-fancy Ferrero Rocher chocolates. The original product name then isn't "Kinder Egg," but the Italian "Kinder Sorpresa," meaning "Kinder Surprise." Just so you know exactly what to ask for on your next trip abroad, we've gathered a few other international names for the beloved treat:

· France/UK/other English or French-speaking countries: Kinder Surprise

· Poland: Kinder Niespodzianka

· Hungary: Kinder Meglepetés

· Russia/Ukraine/Kazakhstan/Belarus: Kinder CЮPПPИЗ

· Germany/Austria/Switzerland: Kinder Überraschung

· Italy/Spain/other Spanish-speaking countries: Kinder Sorpresa
