Nestlé has[when?] discontinued the traditional packaging technique of wrapping the bar in aluminum foil, sleeved inside a paper label, in favor of more conventional packaging practices, most likely due to the excessive time it took in double-packaging the bar. The chocolate bar can now commonly be found in a single-ply inner metallised boPET polyester film, typical of convenience foods packaging.
Besides the chocolate bar, Nestlé also produces other Nestlé Crunch products:
Buncha Crunch are candy pieces made of milk chocolate with crisped rice mixed in. They were originally only sold exclusively in movie theaters, but of May 2012 they have become available in most grocery stores.
Nestlé Crunch White is a candy bar made with white chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
