Kinder Happy Hippo
The Kinder Happy Hippo is a cookie (biscuit in the UK) creation of Italian chocolate and confectionery company Ferrero SpA.
The candy itself consists of a wafer biscuit, shaped like a hippopotamus. Inside are two flavors of icings. The original has milk and hazelnut flavouring. In the cocoa flavour, chocolate replaces hazel nut.
Happy Hippos were made famous by a popular TV commercial. A CGI-animated Hippo sang The Lion Sleeps Tonight while a CGI dog tried to distract him by dancing to the music in increasingly funny and bizarre ways.
The original light blue and still used Happy Hippo characters are the design of French designer André Roche for Ferrero chocolates in 1987. They became famous worldwide through their appearances in the “Kinder Surprise” chocolate egg. In 2002 in “Hipperium” an authorized parody of the George Lucas’ “Star Wars”-trilogy.
