Son Goku , Super Saiyan Blue version. Weight: 272 grams. Or at least, according to several TikTok accounts, this is the weight that the Kinder GranSorpresa Easter egg containing the action figure of Goku, the protagonist of Akira Toriyama ‘s Dragon Ball series, should have. With the death of its author on March 1 from an acute subdural hematoma, this surprise has become even more coveted.

According to the official Kinder website, there can be three surprises in the Dragon Ball series: Son Goku, Vegeta or Jiren. All these characters come from Dragon Ball Super , the anime that tells the events following the end of Akira Toriyama’s original series.

The method to find the surprise you want is simple . The weight of the chocolate egg is 150 grams . Each surprise has a different weight and so to find out what surprise is inside each egg, just use the scales that are usually found in supermarkets in the fruit and vegetable section. The main hunt concerns Dragon Ball characters but the technique is also spreading for other surprises.

The reasons can be various, from hygiene risks to the possibility of creating queues. What they cannot forbid, however, is allowing the customer to weigh the products he wants to purchase . If you want to be sure of finding exactly your surprise then the best thing is to bring a scale from home .
