Pop-tarts are a well-known breakfast treat. I think most of us have probably eaten our fair share of them and we really don’t give it much thought.
We probably also have our favorite flavor, and strawberry is a favorite among many.
If you happen to be a fan of strawberry Pop-Tarts, then you might be interested in knowing that Kellogg’s is being sued for about $5 million because they don’t have enough strawberries in their whole-grain frosted strawberry Pop-Tarts.
Anybody that has eaten Pop-Tarts realizes that they are a quick fix for morning hunger. They aren’t exactly the healthiest item on the menu, but they certainly are popular.
The issue with strawberry Pop-Tarts is in the name itself. You would think that they have plenty of strawberries but when you take a look at the ingredients on the box, you find that the filling is made up of “2% or less” of pears, apples, and strawberries.
In other words, “strawberry” doesn’t seem like it really is as accurate as it should be on the label.
The lawsuit would like to see Kellogg’s update the packaging and choose some different wording so they are not misinforming the breakfast-eating public.SKM: below-content placeholder
