In the past few years, Kinder products started arriving on shelves in grocery stores across the U.S. Currently, there are two products that you can get: Kinder Joy, a creme-filled egg with a small toy inside, and Kinder Bueno, a wafer covered in chocolate and filled with hazelnut creme. But the elusive Kinder Chocolate, formerly exclusive to the United Kingdom, is finally making its debut on this side of the pond, starting in August.
For the record, the chocolate is basically a Kinder Bueno without the wafer layer. And because we haven’t been able to get the straight-up chocolate variety in the U.S. before, it’s kind of a big deal.
We’ve done some digging to find out more information about the candy’s Stateside release. For more smart shopping tips and savings hacks, text HACKS to 57299.
You can expect to find the Kinder Chocolate in most grocery stores beginning August 2023.
The official list of grocery stores that will be selling the confections isn’t available yet. However, we expect the chocolate to come to stores that are already selling Kinder products.
Here is a list of retailers who will most likely carry it:
- BJ’s Wholesale
- Sam’s Club

Expect a cost of around $2.50 or more.
In the UK, this brand costs £1.30 (or $1.63). While we don’t know exactly how much they will be selling it for in the U.S., we anticipate the price to be at least $2.50.
Here’s how we calculated the expected price. First, we took the price of Kinder Bueno in the U.S. versus the UK ($5.99 in the U.S. and $2.82 in the UK), determining the price difference is around 52.9%. From there, we used that ratio to ring up our anticipated U.S. chocolate price — around $2.50.
There are nine of the brand’s products we still want to see available in the U.S..
Right now, we are still waiting on nine Kinder products to be released to the U.S. We haven’t received any news on when they will be arriving, but these are the treats currently MIA from the States:
- Country: chocolate filled with puffed cereal
- Happy Hippo: a wafer shaped like a hippo that is fileld with cream and a hazelnut spread
- Milk Slice: a layer of cream between two chocolate sponge cakes that are meant to be chilled in the fridge
- Pingui: a chocolate sponge cake filled with milky filling and chocolate
- Maxi King: milk chocolate and crushed hazelnuts covered wafer with a milky filling
- Schoko-Buns: bite-sized chocolate covered milk balls with hazelnut pieces
- Cards: a biscuit filled with a milk and chocolate filling
- Chocofresh: milk chocolate with a milky center and hazelnut filling
- Delice: a sponge cake with a milky center and covered with chocolate cream
