The soft drink that seems bubbly and friendly is facing a not-so-friendly lawsuit. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has issued a press release that it has filed suit against the maker of this soft drink, for misleading ads.
The soft drink was advertised to contain an antioxidant in its regular and diet Cherry sodas that gave the impression that the drink contained healthy fruits. The ads included pictures of cherries, blackberries, cranberries, raspberries and pomegranates, on its various labels. Instead, according to the lawsuit, the drinks really contains water, high-fructose corn syrup, citric acid, potassium benzoate and Red dye. The Mixed Berry drink also contains blue dye.
According to the lawsuit, the US Food and Drug Administration should step in where soft drinks are really worthless beverages. It is alleged that one 12-ounce serving of the drinks contain nine teaspoons of sugar and 140 calories. None of that suggests a healthy antioxidant concoction.
Kinda makes me want to run, not walk, from good old 7UP. I guess that’s not even putting the “lime in the coconut” is it?
For pic o’ day, well, no caption really needed!!!
