PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinder Bueno®, the crispy, creamy, light, and airy chocolate bar is celebrating #NationalSelfieDay on Monday, June 21 by introducing buenobot by Kinder Bueno, a celebrity-inspired Instagram filter to help consumers feel like stars in their daily lives.

About Kinder Bueno® Kinder® is just one of the confectionery brands owned by Italian company, Ferrero Group. Kinder Bueno is a unique chocolate bar with a taste experience that defies expectations. Beneath a blanket of smooth milk chocolate lies a thin, crispy wafer filled with a creamy hazelnut filling, all topped with a delicate, dark chocolate drizzle. Kinder Bueno is satisfying but not heavy, with a texture that is anything but expected. Launched in 1990 and now available in 60 countries around the world from Brazil to Hong Kong to South Africa, Kinder Bueno originated from a desire to provide consumers with a premium, sophisticated chocolate experience.
