As part of its national debut, the brand launched
its "Let That Kid Flag Fly " campaign to champion quality moments of togetherness between parents and kids.

"Having just hit shelves in the U.S. this past September, we are thrilled to see Kinder Chocolate already receiving this extraordinary recognition. We hope that families everywhere continue to find those small, meaningful moments of connection while sharing a delicious pack of Kinder Chocolate and truly let those Kid flags fly," said
