Ever wondered why the plastic shell inside a Kinder Surprise is yellow?


Did you know this?

Even though we’ve been enjoying them for years, people have just found out why the capsules in Kinder Eggs are yellow. It was discovered through Mumsnet when people were sharing information they had only found out as adults.

Someone pointed out the reason for the yellow pods saying, “The pod inside kinder eggs is yellow because its meant to be the egg yolk. Found it out the other day. Mind = Blown.”

It makes total sense, we just hadn’t ever thought about it too much.

And we’re not alone. It seems to have blown everyone’s mind.
