Raise the bridge or lower the river

The price of cocoa and currency fluctuations led to a price increase, of a sort.

“Mondelez Redesigns Toblerone Bar, Reflecting Rising Costs of Ingredients,” The Wall Street Journal, November 9, 2016 B1.  The company effectively raised the price 12% not by raising the price but by changing the product design and reducing the product weight from 170 grams to 150 grams.

So, which is the information in this story?  The product design?  The price?  The weight?  Has the package changed, except for the “net weight”?
