Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Kellogg's strawberry-flavored Pop-Tarts need more strawberries, according to a lawsuit filed against the company in August. A class-action lawsuit, filed by Anita Harris in the Southern District of Illinois, argues that the Kellogg Sales Company is misleading consumers by promoting the breakfast pastry's strawberry filling in its labels and marketing, giving an impression that the fruit filling contains "a greater relative and absolute amount of strawberries than it does."

Ms Harris has too much time on her hands.

Perhaps this will go somewhere based on technicality, but the cinnamon poptarts are clearly the choice decision if they're at offer at a free breakfast.

Let's be real: folks who were actually "harmed" will either get $1.64, or a coupon for a free box o'tarts, while the lawyers each buy new lake houses.

That's about the size of it.

If I was going to worry about contents of any sweet quick snack, it would be the sugar.

Fine call them the "strawberry flavored" and "artificially colored" breakfast of champions. I think I have eaten one or two in my life. I managed to bypass the whole "top raman, pop tarts phase.

"In reality, the company's "Frosted Strawberry Toaster Pastries" contain 2% or less of "dried strawberries, dried pears, dried apples" and "red 40," according to its nutrition label. "

Caveat emptor

White rice has more glycemic potential than Pop-tarts. Or so I've heard.

They had strawberries in them? Weird. I thought they were entirely artificial colors, artificial flavors, and HFCS.

I always took strawberry to mean the flavor.

Always assumed there wasn't actual strawberry of any amount in the pop tart. Actually, thinking about it I would hope there isn't given how long they sit on shelves ...

Have you ever put butter on pop tart?

Probably the single greatest thing Bill Clinton did was sign an accurate food labeling bill into law. Before then, there was no requirement to put caloric and nutritional information on foods.

Rookie mistake. Look and Learn.
