Does anyone know the kashrut status of these chocolates? They are made in Poland.

Do they have a Hechsher? You probably have a problem of chametz sheavar regardless.

Same as if you bought them anywhere else in the world. They dont have a hechsher AFAIK.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Kinder 'eggs' have a hechsher.
Chocolate in almost all cases does not have a problem with חמץ שעבר עליו הפסח

The item in your link says "wafer balls", wouldn't "wafers" be חמץ? Also, looking at the Kinder website it seems that some other products contain wheat flour and/or other grains. Not talking about the non-CY issue, where I wonder if R' Moshe would permit where there are CY products available for purchase right there.

Yes. The Kinder chocolate bars are not.
The eggs I know are kosher, the bars I don't

The ones you find in Israel. The ones you find in Israel are illegal in America because they are a choking hazard.
I'm not who you think I am.

Hechsher in Europe? And if it has wheat and is being sold by an irreligious fellow in Israel why is there no problem of chometz sheavar?

I wonder if R' Moshe would permit where there are CY products available for purchase right there.
If it's better and/or cheaper.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Re CY, wasn't the question. Better and cheaper are not requirements for me personally

Needs to be that contains a kezayis (1.1 fluid ounces) of Chametz and more than 1/60th of the final cooked product is Chametz to be חמץ שעבר עליו הפסח
