In the 90's, Michele Ferrero created an innovative new product, Kinder Bueno: an indulgent treat with a unique combination of taste and texture to be enjoyed. In Australia, Kinder Bueno was launched in 2002.
In 1974, the iconic Kinder Surprise was launched in Europe. All children love chocolate, playing games and discovering new things. And so, the concept of an egg with a surprise toy was created, representing a special joy-filled moment to be shared between parents and their children.
In Australia, Kinder Surprise was first launched in 1993.
By the late 60's, mothers in Italy became more focused with nutritional information, and kids became more selective about what they liked to eat. Michele Ferrero, the creator of the Kinder brand, took these two factors to heart and came up with the perfect balance – the Kinder Chocolate bar is made especially for children because it has more milk, less cocoa to give the Kinder Chocolate taste children love and is individually wrapped in small portions to assist with portion control. In Australia, Kinder Chocolate was launched in 2005.
