While agreeing that packaging can be misleading, I don't get the "reasonable person" part. Reasonable people read the fu*king ingredient list. And if it lists something with more than three syllables, put it back on the shelf or go be fat somewhere else.

It must be nice to have a life where you can bring suit against a company because of Fruit Roll-ups. God I wish I had that kind of time.

Here's some cheesy nips for ya.

I've been making fruit roll ups in my dehydrator for years. Much better than the store bought stuff and I can make flavors you can't find in the store.

/strawberry\pineapple FTW!

If you stick with organic, natural foods, you're less likely to even have to face this mislabeled, processed crap. I avoid all of this sugary crap, anyways. My new favorite high-protein snack is freshwater mountain oysters I get from the shop down the street. No additives, no chemicals, just fresh nutritious food from the sea.

They should have followed Kellogg's example and named it "Froot Rollups".

Seriously. It's not that hard to read the ingredients. That's usually how I decide what to buy. It's why I buy Wegmans fruit twists (http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langI d=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=10002&productId=733040) instead of fruit roll-ups. I look at the ingredients and buy what I want accordingly.

What is this reasonable person crap? I think any reasonable person would have known since they were a child that fruit roll ups aren't fruit. If somebody is an adult and hasn't realized this, then they aren't a reasonable person.

While I agree with you on a product like "fruit roll ups" other companies love to mislead consumers when it comes to shiat like this.

They will put 100% in huge lettering on the labe, but if you look closer it says 100% of the USRDA of some vitamins.

They will put Juice in huge lettering on the label, but if you look closer it says "drink" in tiny letters below that.

Usually I'm aware enough to catch these things before I pay for a product like that but I don't like the first indication that something is not natural to be the taste of it.

Farking sugar water.

However if you buy something that looks like zombie skin and expect it to be made with natural ingredients yeah - you deserve whatever shiat you get.

Roukzeptea23: OregonVet ongbok


I can't believe you guys are defending this. I think a reasonable person would be led to believe that there were strawberries in here. You shouldn't have to read the fine print on everything to make sure you're not getting jammed in the ass. Companies doing shait like this is part of the reason we have so damn many regulations and lawsuits.

I can imagine the board meeting where they cooked this up.
"Legal dept. says we can do it."
"Any concerns from Moral and Ethical dept?"
"Uh...Chief we don't have a Moral and Ethical dept."
"Brilliant!"

They were named as a pun on a popular stageplay at the time, "Junior Miss."

I'm among the most free-market libertarians one can find outside of academia, but the ingredients list is the only thing stopping me from saying they should be criminally prosecuted for fraud. Their labeling is clearly misleading.

There's no toes in my potatoes. And not nearly enough nana in my bananas. The strawberries lack straw, and nothing rhymes with my oranges. The pears don't come in pairs. Cabbages do not affect the age of cabs nor do carrots make my car rot. The kiwi is useless for opening locked wees, and my blueberries are purple. Don't even get me started on the cauliflower.

Well, it does contain fruit. It's not a strawberry, but it's a fruit.

There was a lawsuit like this that was a bit worse. It was about fake blueberries with products implied to contain blueberries.
Instead of the fruit, the little balls are corn syrup/oil clusters.

We've made a little progress, though. It seems fruit drinks typically have to list the juice content in bold letters above the nutrition box. CONTAINS 5% JUICE

Fruit juice isn't that healthy anyway. The healthy part gets thrown away, you're just drinking sugar water.
