CHOICE's annual awards name and shame the shonkiest products and companies taking advantage of Australian consumers.

SHONKY: (adjective) Australian slang meaning "unreliable, unsound, dishonest, poor or of dubious quality; shoddy"


And the lemon goes to...

The Commonwealth Bank, KitchenAid, Nutri-Grain and Marriott Vacation Club are among the big brands whose bad behaviour has earned them a lemon gong at the 13th annual CHOICE Shonkys.
