Low calorie ice cream Halo Top is life for many of us. So good, and so low in calories that we don't go down that eating shame spiral after eat it. It quickly became the #1 ice cream in America, beating out the likes of Ben & Jerry's and Häagen-Dazs.
But Halo Top is being sued for "dramatically under filling their pints". Two people on the west coast, Youssif Kamal and Gillian Neely, filed a class action lawsuit against the makers of Halo Top. They say they paid for a full pint, but have gotten less several times, several times "dramatically". They feel something has to be done.
In the proposed lawsuit, they go on to say
“In short, it is difficult (if not impossible) for any consumer to know—until after purchase and upon opening the container—whether or not they will receive a full pint.”
If you think it's crazy, think again. There's a term in the food industry called “nonfunctional slack fill”. It's a bad thing. It's the words they use in court to describe when a company doesn't fill their containers completely. That is highly illegal in California.
But don't feel bad for Halo Top. Legal experts say the lawsuit is vague and they don't have much supporting evidence.
