Twitter's Hilarious Response To The Strawberry Pop-Tarts Lawsuit

Pop-Tarts are one of the most iconic breakfast sweet treats for both kids and adults alike. Ever since they were first released by Kellogg's in 1964, the tasty toaster pastries have been flying off grocery store shelves (via Parade). Similar to the "how do you eat Oreos" controversy, they've even created an equally divisive argument among fans: Do you eat them warm and toasted or cold straight out of the box? Regardless of your answer, there's no denying that the pastries are an American classic. Today, Pop-Tarts come in a variety of flavors, including classics like Brown Sugar Cinnamon and Chocolate Fudge and more adventurous varieties like Pumpkin Pie and Salted Caramel Pretzel.

However, one of the most popular flavors is currently causing a bit of an issue for Pop-Tarts. Kellogg's is being sued by a New York woman for not being the healthy, strawberry-filled food she allegedly expected to bite into. "The Product's common or usual name of 'Whole Grain Frosted Strawberry Toaster Pastries,' is false, deceptive, and misleading, because it contains mostly non-strawberry fruit ingredients," the suit claims (via NBC News). Naturally, Twitter is abuzz with reactions to the bizarre lawsuit — here are some of the funniest (and most relatable) responses.

People are outraged that Pop-Tarts is being sued

It seems like common knowledge that, while delicious, Pop-Tarts are hardly the most nutritious or healthiest breakfast choice — the sugary icing or sprinkles may have clued you into that. However, the plaintiff in the Kellogg's lawsuit apparently thought otherwise, angrily accusing the brand of misleading her to believe that she'd be getting a hearty serving of fresh strawberries. And now? She's demanding $5 million for her injuries (via NBC News). But she might be surprised to learn that not many people are on her side.

The Washington Post tweeted about the story and the responses quickly flooded in. They ranged from hilarious to outraged, as people couldn't believe that someone would truly think that Pop-Tarts were an adequate source of fresh fruit or nutrition. "Is the name of the Plaintiff 'Karen' by any chance? Asking for a friend," one person commented, with many others posting eye-rolling GIFs. Others got a lot more snarky, "Does this mean I can sue Kraft, for the lack of miracles, in Miracle Whip?" one Twitter user shot back, while another said, "Wait until she hears about candy corn." It didn't stop there, either, as others brought up the lack of fruit in Froot Loops and the fact that Cap'n Crunch doesn't have crunchberries. As for how the lawsuit turned out? Stay tuned.
