A six-year-old boy received a nasty surprise when he opened a Kinder Surprise and discovered a bag of white powder inside.

The boy, who was playing with his eight-year-old brother, found the mystery substance when the pair were playing in Limavady, Northern Ireland.

The boys discovered the chocolate egg under a hedge, before the six-year-old gave it to his father, who handed it in to police.

Inspector Colin Shaw of the Police Service of Northern Ireland told the Telegraph: “The contents of the bag, which was found inside a toy egg, is believed to be methamphetamine. This small quantity of drugs will be disposed of by police.

“This incident is of the uppermost concern for all of us. Tackling the use and supply of illegal drugs is a priority for us and the possibility that something so potentially dangerous has been discarded where children could find it is deeply concerning.

“I don’t want members of the local community to find drugs on their street, however this incident just reminds us that criminals have no regard whatsoever for the safety of local residents, and I am thankful that this child had the sense to speak to an adult about what he discovered.”

What a shocking surprise!

  • scary thought of what could have happened.


  • people just have no idea these days!


  • You’d certainly be very upset if your kd showed you this!


  • This is so scary! So lucky that the children handed it over instead of thinking it was some sort of Lolly! The person who did this should be jailed!

    • Totally agree with your comment – what is the world coming to?


  • I hope they find who is responsible


  • Just awful – hope it was investigated and the culprits discovered.


  • This could have turned tragic had the young boy decided to try the powder. So glad he didn’t.


  • A bit misleading – not like it was in a kinder surprise – someone had just stored it in the plastic toy container usually found in the eggs. Really nothing to do with kinder


  • So weird! Why would someone put drugs inside a chocolate egg and leave it where people could find it? Could it have been a way of trafficking drugs?


  • Omg, thank goodness he gave it to his dad. I hate to think what would have happened if he consumed.


  • Wow could have been awful!


  • Very shocking to say the least! Thank god the boy didn’t consume the powder.
