A California woman is suing General Mills for false advertising. Janine Sugawara claims the company misled her into believing Cap’n Crunch with Crunchberries was made with real berries.
Let’s just hope she never finds out the truth behind dinngleberries!
Judge Morrison England Jr. dismissed the case, pointing out “This Court is not aware of, nor has Plaintiff alleged the existence of, any actual fruit referred to as a ‘crunchberry.'” (or Booberry for that matter)
But attorney Jeffery Kravits disagrees with the ruling, “Call it Cap’n Crunch with sugar balls. Let consumers know what it is ahead of time.”
Right… heck for all we know he’s not even a real Captain!
It’s not Sugawara’s first time pulling a stunt like this. She had a similar case, which alleged Froot Loops was not made with real fruit, thrown out as well. Still Sugawara is undeterred and plans to appeal.
You might call her a “cereal” suer.
