Survey found 31% of respondents increasing budget for New Year candy; average household spends 1226 dollars and White Rabbit Creamy Candy is Hong Kong people's favorite classic candy
Many people are busy purchasing Lunar New Year goods as New Year is approaching and many people have stored sufficient fund for a wave of fare increases. Park Central and Cultural Institution - Cultural Gourd visited 1200 people in Causeway Bay and Mong Kok street last month and found that the average household budget spent 1,226 dollars on Chinese New Year candy, of which accounted for gifts and self use. 50% of respondents purchased candy by flavors, 22.7% purchased according to price and 11.3% purchased according to packaging. Though there is various packaging and types of candy in market, Chinese and traditional candy is still favorites among 80% of respondents. A majority of respondents would go to supermarket to buy their favorite candy because of convenience and price and department stores has also become one of the hot spots for purchase because of various brands and types. Survey also selected Hong Kong people's 10 most favorite classic candy. White Rabbit Creamy Candy (大白兔奶糖) took No.1 spot getting support from 27.6% of respondents, next is Sugus (瑞士糖) at 25.9% and Yan Jim Kee coconut candy (甄沾記椰子糖) at 10.1%.
Cultural Gourd Project Director Wu Wen pointed out that White Rabbit Creamy Candy had imprinted its image with its rabbit trademark since 1959 and its advertising campaign "seven white rabbit creamy candy equals 1 cup of milk" was seen as contemporary nutritional food. To date, it has become a leading confectionery brand in China.
Hong Kong & Kowloon Wine & Spirit Dealers Association Vice President Li Guanglin Chinese New Year goods price surged due to RMB appreciation, rising inflation and cold weather during harvest of raw materials, therefore retail price is expected to increase by 10% to 30%.
