DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE REAL FRUIT OR NOT, BUT THE BROTHERS CAN TELL YOU THIS...:

Cap’n Crunch Prevails: Crunchberries Suit Fails (Kurt Brouwer, June 9th, 2009, Fundmastery)

My two boys occasionally eat Cap’n Crunch, Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes cereals so this story got their attention. And, this heartwarming tale of commonsense in court should be good news for all. A lawsuit again Cap’n Crunch cereal has been dismissed [emphasis added]:

Reasonable Consumer Would Know “Crunchberries” Are Not Real, Judge Rules (Lowering the Bar, June 2, 2009, Kevin Underhill)

On May 21, a judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she had purchased “Cap’n Crunch with Crunchberries” because she believed it contained real fruit. The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, alleged that she had only recently learned to her dismay that said “berries” were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls, and that although the product did contain some strawberry fruit concentrate, it was not otherwise redeemed by fruit. She sued, on behalf of herself and all similarly situated consumers, some of whom may believe that there are fields somewhere in our land thronged by crunchberry bushes…

The legal decision was a joy to read.


...once they're soaked in milk they stick to the wall really well when you catapult them with your spoon.
