I’m not sure which came first, the Kinder Egg or Kinder Happy Hippo. Either way, I’m a super fan.
Kinder Happy Hippo is life changing to those who covet crispy wafers and hazelnut. The hippopotamus outer shell (isn’t it cute!?) is a wafer biscuit filled with two types of icing: milk-flavored & hazelnut creme. Think Ferror Rocher dipped in creme. The frosting/meringue-dipped bottom is crunchy and makes it look like its foaming at the mouth.
I first was introduced to Happy Hippos by my coworker. We get our daily/weekly fix from the gourmet gas station that carries these delights, among other Kinder goods.
