Very recently, a consumer class action lawsuit was filed against Krispy Kreme alleging that the donut company used misleading words like blueberry and maple in the names of some of their doughnuts. These words are deemed misleading, due to, and according to the Krispy Kreme Class Action Lawsuit complaint, these doughnuts do not contain these ingredients. This Krispy Kreme lawsuit is not the first of its kind, in fact, last November (2016) a very similar case was filed, which we also covered.
That case, which references Krispy Kreme’s Nutritional Data & Ingredients sheet, states that there are no raspberries in the companies Chocolate Iced Raspberry Filled, or, Glazed Raspberry Filled donuts. Nor is there any maple in Krispy Kreme’s Maple Iced Glazed and Maple Bar donuts. This new lawsuit, however, states that Krispy Kreme stores sell the Blueberry and Maple Doughnuts, with the deceptive names described below, and with the ingredients that do not include blueberries or maple syrup/maple sugar, respectively.Based on information and belief, Krispy Kreme had knowledge of its misrepresentation about the Real Ingredients in the Class Products and acquiesced in such misrepresentations. The Krispy Kreme Class Action complaint also goes on to say that “Krispy Kreme benefited monetarily from the misrepresentations through the increased sales of the Class Products to the deceived consumers, including Plaintiffs and the Class Members.”
