Lawsuit Claims Dunkin' Donuts Blueberry Products Don't Actually Contain Blueberries
When you order a donut, you're probably not buying it because you think it's healthy. However, “fruit-flavored” donuts could be thought of as a better choice (I guess), and customers have not been happy to find out otherwise.
A lawsuit filed in July by a Chicago customer asserts Dunkin' Donuts violated Illinois' Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act by misrepresenting the blueberries in some of its bakery products.
The store's Blueberry Butternut Cake, Blueberry Cake Donut, and Blueberry Crumb Cake donuts do not contain actual blueberries, but rather flavored crystals made of sugar, corn syrup, and Blue 1; its blueberry muffins, however, do contain real blueberries.
The suit is seeking $5 million in damages, restitution, and court fees. Over a $1 donut.
