News Flash - You can't grow crunchberries

DH sent me this link today about a lawsuit that was thankfully thrown out of court, in which an angry consumer tried to sue the makers of Capt’n Crunch cereal for somehow leading her to believe that the ‘crunchberries’ in her cereal were actually real fruit.

Fortunately the judge ruled that any reasonable consumer would be able to tell that cereal balls are made, not grown.

Before you start checking your cereal boxes, just be informed – there is no real Froot in Froot Loops and Fruity Pebbles contain no actual pebbles.

Let the buyer beware.

Yeah, it's funny how people who can't think their way out of a wet paper bag, have no trouble finding a lawyer.

Wow. What more can I say?

BTW - "There's no FROOT in Froot Loops." That totally cracked me up! ^_^

My DH wants you to know that Lucky Charms ARE magically delicious though.

That is true about Lucky Charms, so my DH and DS tell me. I only like the marshmallows, though.
