Odds and Ends
Not so surprising surprise

Not at all the reason for the ban! It's actually just poor wording in a law. The law banned "plastic inside of food for any reason other than support" which basically allowed popsicles and suckers to keep their sticks, but banned any other plastic from being in food. The intent was that plastic can be used to make fake rice and a few other things, so they wanted to ban that. The effect was... not that.
It's like how horse meat is illegal to sell, but not to cook or eat, because to sell meat in the US there must be an FDA approved grading system for that meat, and they just never made one for horse.
Also, they're still banned. Kinder just made the Kinder Joy Egg for US sales.
