What a Maroon

July 8, 2010

Gothamist points out that some dummy decided to sue Yoo-Hoo because:

they falsely advertise it as “good for you” when it actually contains unhealthy ingredients…

Timothy Dahl, 35, is looking to take the suit nationwide as a class action suit, charging that the beverage once touted by Yogi Berra as the “Drink of Champions” actually “contains dangerous, unhealthy, non-nutritious partially hydrogenated oil,” court papers say.

Motts LLP, which makes the drink, also claims that it contains “7 vitamins and minerals and no preservatives,” but Dahl claims in his suit that it “contains virtually no milk and instead is mostly water, sugars, milk by-products and chemicals.”

“Portraying Yoo-hoo as healthy and nutritious is deceptive and misleading for kids and adults,” the suit claims.

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group which distributes the chocolatey beverage, slammed the suit as nonsense.

“This is a trivial lawsuit. Yoo-Hoo is a perfectly safe, fun treat for people to enjoy. It’s 99 percent fat free and despite what the suit claims, contains insignificant amounts of hydrogenated oil. We stand by our product,” said Greg Artkop, a spokesman for the company.

    Can we file a class action suit against this moron for ruining our culture? Really, is there ANYBODY in the country who decides they need to start eating better so they go grab a cold bottle of chocolate drink, not milk, but drink? Fuck that guy.

    Yogi’s eyebrows look huge.

        Big eyebrows are another reason to love Yogi.

    A Yahoo sues Yoo-Hoo. It’s all too much. I pray that Gloria Allred doesn’t jump on this bandwagon. A little known trivia fact: The Dr. Pepper Snapple Group was originally called the Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus. It’s come full circle now.
