Mediterranean Imports might be one of the best-kept secrets in our fair city. I live very close to the store, but it wasn't until a former coworker of mine fed me a marinated olive from them a few years ago and demanded I go try it out. I couldn't believe I hadn't ever been there before.
Kinder Bueno is made from crisp wafers and hazelnut cream, which is all covered in chocolate. It's amazing. I'm not the sort to buy candy bars while in the checkout lane of the grocery, but if we had Kinder Bueno, I might be tempted more frequently. Med Imports is also probably one of the only places in Columbus to buy Kinder Surprise. If you've ever had a German friend, chances are you've been gifted with the wonder of the Kinder Surprise. Kinder Surprise is a chocolate/white chocolate egg of average quality (which in Germany, still beats most average American counterparts), which is broken apart. Inside the eggshell is a yellow plastic egg which contains a toy. The best of these toys are the ones which have lots of parts to be put together. In college I had a big collection of these toys, thanks to my friend German Joel. A few years ago I found the box of them and probably threw it away (of course, the old ones are collectible). It's still a thrill to break open the egg to see what sort of toy you have. I got a Nordic ship! Since these treats contain tiny parts, they are not suitable for small children and therefore are not typically imported into the US (so keep this info on the down-low, would you?). I love the sad baby icon on the packaging. (Picture broke; I'll replace soon)
