A woman tried to sue Cap'n Crunch because she thought she had been eating real berries four 4 years!
Cap’n Crunch was introduced in 1963 by Quaker Oats Company. The sea captain that is the mascot or face of Cap’n Crunch has a name, Horatio Magellan Crunch. There are several variations of the cereal including one with berries and another with peanut butter. Cap’n Crunch has received one of the worst nutritional scores of any cereal marketed to children. Also, eating the cereal can cause “crunch mouth” which is a condition where the pallet and gums become irritated from abrasions caused by the crunchy cereal.
In 2009, Janine Sugawara went to court against PepsiCo, Inc., who owns the cereal; because she believed she’d been eating real crunchberry fruit when eating the cereal. It took her four years of eating the cereal to realize that she wasn’t eating any real fruit at all and that the cereal was really unhealthy. In the end, the judge threw out the case for its ridiculousness.
