Starbucks Introduces New Line Of Iced Beverages

*Starbucks has been sued by a woman who claims that the coffee chain is deceiving customers by putting too much ice in their iced drinks.

I think I’m going to sue McDonalds for putting too much cheese on a cheeseburger.  

Or maybe someone should sue God for putting too much time on this woman’s hands.

Stacy Pincus of Chicago has claimed that by advertising its cold drinks by fluid ounce, the figures are only accurate when ice is added to a drink.

Hence the term “ICED drink,” right? But stay with me.

“Starbucks is advertising the size of its Cold Drink cups on its menu, rather than the amount of fluid a customer will receive when they purchase a Cold Drink — and deceiving its customers in the process,” the lawsuit says.

For example, one of Starbucks Venti cold drinks — for the record, why can’t Starbucks just use Small, Medium, and Large? But that’s a talk for another time — is advertised as having 24 fluid ounces, but 10 of those ounces is ice in an iced drink.

Pincus’ lawsuit seeks over $5 million in damages.
