Consumer health advocate:Your candy company adds caffeine to your chocolate candy bars so that each one delivers a specified amount of caffeine. Since caffeine is highly addictive, this indicates that you intend to keep your customers addicted.

Candy manufacturer:Our manufacturing process results in there being less caffeine in each chocolate candy bar than in the unprocessed cacao beans from which the chocolate is made.

The candy manufacturer's response is flawed as a refutation of the consumer health advocate's argument because it

fails to address the issue of whether the level of caffeine in the candy bars sold by the manufacturer is enough to keep people addicted

assumes without warrant that all unprocessed cacao beans contain a uniform amount of caffeine

does not specify exactly how caffeine is lost in the manufacturing process

treats the consumer health advocate's argument as though it were about each candy bar rather than about the manufacturer's candy in general

merely contradicts the consumer health advocate's conclusion without giving any reason to believe that the advocate's reasoning is unsound
