Roy Werbel was shocked, shocked when he found no fruit in his froot loops. Werbel is suing Kellogg’s because he believed Toucan Sam when he declared: “Follow my nose! It always knows! The flavor of froot! Wherever it grows!” Werbel insists that he reasonably assumed “froot” was “fruit.”
Werbel filed in San Francisco federal court alleging that Kellogg’s and its accomplice Toucan Sam misled him. He presumably intends to break Sam on the stand and have him sign in front of a shocked fruit-deprived jury.
Werbel’s complaint insists that “Froot Loops contained no fruit, he would not have purchased it.” The complaint also establishes Werbel may be the biggest breakfast chump since Count Chocula. He is also claiming that he bought Cap’n Crunch Crunch Berries and found no berries.
While Werbel has been denounced as a nut or frivolous litigant, I find him an inspiration. I am announcing today that I am suing local pastry shops for serving me “Bear claws” that contain not a single ounce of real bear. I will not even get into my lifetime disappointment over so-called “hot dogs.”
