When is a blueberry not a blueberry?  When it is in a Glazed Blueberry Cake donut at Krispy Kreme.  A $5million class action lawsuit has been filed against the donut maker for misleading names of their donuts, such as Chocolate Iced Raspberry Filled and Glazed Raspberry as they do not contain any fruit.  Rather they contain blue or red color globs of sugar that resemble fruit shapes. The plaintiff, Jason Saidian, claims that he believed that these products really had the ingredients in their names, and wouldn’t have purchased them or would have not been willing to pay as much had he believed that they were fake. Considering the company uses real chocolate and lemon products, it is a wonder why it is not true for blueberries and raspberries. However the lawsuit may be making a stretch in claiming the practice of deceptive advertising is depriving customers of the health benefits of fruit when it is a top or inside a sugary-laden, deep fried donut lead you to wonder the outcome of the lawsuit filed last week.
