A woman who bought Cap’N'Crunch Crunchberries cereal sued because she was disappointed when she found out that the supposed “crunchberries” were not actual fruit.
The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, says shes bought the Cap’N'Crunch with crunchberries because she thought crunchberries were real fruit. She subsequently learned that the “berries” were actually nothing more than brightly colored cereal balls, and that the cereal contained no real fruit.
There was not only a similar suit filed over the cereal Fruit Loops but in fact, the lawyers who sued over the Fruit Loops cereal were the same lawyers who filed the suit for the Cap’N'Crunch.
Malt-O-Meal now makes a version of Crunch Berries with marshmallows. I, of course, bought a huge 5 lb bag of it last time I was at a Walmart in the US.
My all-time fave from high school, though, was Dino Pebbles. It was basically Frosted Krispies (well, the Pebbles version) with a metric shit-ton of dinosaur marshmallows. Unfortunately, it quickly got discontinued because of its high sugar content and basically no discernible nutritional value.
