Not so surprising surprise

Incorrect. A surprise is quite essential and vital for a surprise product to function, you know. You can only doubt it because you are an American and didn't grow up with them being available. Although it has been ages since I was a little kid, I can assure you the capsule and toy hidden within the chocolate egg is 100% necessary for the product. The chocolate itself was always of inferior quality to real chocolate bars (not that children would pay much attention to that), but it's nevertheless a clear sign the chocolate wasn't the point of those surprise eggs, the surprise was.
Perhaps companies operating in the USA were merely worried about the overdeveloped American justice system and decided not to risk it. It's not worth it to earn 10 million selling chocolate eggs, but then lose 100 million in the court.
