New York woman sues pop-tarts for $5 million over strawberries

If you say your product contains strawberries, then you better be sure it contains enough strawberries. That pretty much sums up the sentiment of one New York woman, who accuses one of the country’s favorite snack giants of misleading its customers. She claims that her Strawberry Pop-Tarts don’t contain enough strawberries. And what do you do in America when you don’t get what you want? You complain, of course.

Syracuse.com reports that a woman is suing Kellogg’s because its whole grain frosted strawberry toaster pastries don’t contain strawberries, but rather other fruits. The suit claims that the snacks actually contain more pears and apples, which don’t provide the nutritional benefits of a strawberry. TMZ says that the ingredients on the back of the box state that the Pop-Tarts are made with “2% or less” of pears, apples and strawberries.

TMZ says the class action lawsuit claims damages exceed $5 million. Why the woman didn’t go to her nearest produce stand and buy real strawberries for consumption remains a total mystery. People take their food very seriously. In December 2020a Yonkers man has led a class action lawsuit that claims the famous King’s Hawaiian Rolls weren’t made in Hawaii. TopClassActions.com says he picked up a pack of Hawaiian rolls from a Stop and Shop, and realized the rolls were actually made in Torrance, Calif., according to the fine print on the label.

There are other wacky stories like this when it comes to people and what they eat. Earlier in December 2020, a New York woman filed a lawsuit against TGI Fridays when she discovered that mozzarella stick appetizers didn’t actually contain real mozzarella cheese. And then was it from 2016, when a Hudson Valley woman sued KFC because her meal didn’t contain enough chicken. Then, there is the story of another New York resident who sued Junior Mints because there were not enough candies in the boxes. We think you get the picture.
