The composition of the mix is not always equal. Sometimes there will be less or more (or sometimes none at all) of certain varieties of sweets in a package. Prior to packaging, the products are placed into a vibrating tray. This is where the different products are placed together in the prescribed proportions. The vibrating tray mixes the different flavors together. We don't have the technology to get the distribution proportions exactly right, this is why it can happen that the mixing is not carried out sufficiently.
