BNI™ 132.34s: Sugary chocolate (typical)

foodBNI™ 132.34s: Crunchie, Cadbury, AUS / NZ, 2011.

'Crunchie' represents the prototypical (median) sugary chocolate bar, chocolate block or bonbon available in New Zealand in 2011. This product was collected as part of a research on the nutritional composition of chocolates in New Zealand.

This prototype is more representative of those who buy a particular brand of sugary chocolate, as well as of the overall 'universe' of similar products. However, an average based on mean values for the aggregated sample (dietBNI) may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general.
