As Offtopic as it gets: Ship Kinder Surprise Eggs to the US?

Hi folks!

I wanted to return a favour to someone in the US, and she asked me wether I could send her a bunch of Kinder Surprise Eggs, as they're apparently not on sale in the US. I was about to say "yeah sure, no problem", until I looked up why they're not available. Apparently the FDA dislikes the concept of stuff hidden in food and thinks its dangerous and decided to ban them. And not just from sale, but importing them seems also prohibited and can result in a fine that apparently can reach 4-digit figures.

Anyone has the slightest clue wether that is enforced when I send them as a private person to another one marked as gift or something? And if yes, do you guys got ways to ship stuff like that through the military?

I'm thankful for any kind of input on this!
