Jessica Gomez from San Bernardino County is suing Jelly Belly because she thinks she was tricked into believing one of the brands products was sugar free.
She's blaming the company for "fancy phrasing."
Gomez bought Jelly Belly's Sport Beans, which are marketed as an exercise supplement containing carbohydrates, electrolytes, and vitamins.
The beans list "evaporated cane juice" on the label instead of citing sugar as an ingredient.
Gomez claims the wording violates California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act, Unfair Business Practices Law, and False Advertising Law.
She thinks Jelly Belly is intentionally deceiving health-conscious consumers with Sport Beans.
Of course Jelly Belly called the case "nonsense:"
“No reasonable consumer could have been deceived by Sport Beans’ labeling – Gomez could not have seen ‘evaporated cane juice’ without also seeing the product’s sugar content on its Nutrition Facts panel."
First of all, not health conscious person would seek out jelly beans as supplement. And second of all, this lady is dumb.
