    Stopped at my local Safeway in California and saw these on the Shelf it's from a company called Drink & Play looks like they come with a little plastic toy that's a 2D acrylic or plastic figure.

    Those have to be close to expiring by now. RID15 was in uhhhh, 2015. Either 11/6 or 6/11. Either way. No.

    I checked the expiration date it doesn't expire till later this year and the labels are evergreen art of the characters not RID15 as to why the toys are RID15 I believe they were offered in a previous promotion and they just gave them to this company because they had leftovers I vaguely remember getting these little toys.

    Which city is this? Do you have photos of the toys themselves?

    So how come these sorts of toys are ok but kinder surprises are banned? Because they aren't 'covered' in chocolate?

    YouTube (Legacy):
    Kinder Surprise eggs were banned since the toy was completely inside the edible item. With this drink, since the food and the toy are separated from one another, that's fine. That's the same reason why Kinder Joy eggs, where the chocolate and the toy are separated from one another, are still allowed in the US.

    US passed a law back in 1938, that prohibits any confectinary item to contain inedible objects...


    This drink doesnt break that rule, as the toy capsule isnt in direct contact with the drink...

    Kinder eggs capsles are in direct contact with the choclolate...

    Cool...back in the day, they did this with RID 2015 packaging, as well.

    I wonder if the figures inside are the same RID figures from 2016 as the call-out art on the packaging uses RID designs?

    I'll have to check my Walmart for them.

    *dusts off thread*

    They’re the same RID figures as before. With each bottle, I got: Grimlock (Megatron), Strongarm (Windblade), Optimus Prime (Bumblebee), and Sideswipe (Optimus Prime). I have no idea if the figures are randomly packed or not, but they do have numbers in the catalog, so maybe that means something. The apple juice is very watered down, but you’re likely buying these for the figurines like I was (my only complaint is that these are $4 a pop - good thing I’m a big TF fan who’s willing to spend that much for stuff like this sometimes).

    Missed opportunity to sell them in cube-shaped containers (easy to stack!) and call that shit "Energon".

    Thanks for the figurines images! These are indeed the same RID 2015 figurines now with an Authentics bottle.

    Choking hazards, nothing - I’m imagining some kid getting one of these stuck in their nose. That’d be fun to explain to the doctor (as they sigh and shake their head).
