Woman Suing After Finding Out Sugar Content Of Jelly Beans

Did you know that Jelly Beans have sugar in them? This woman apparently did not, and is now filing a lawsuit!

According to Forbes, Jessica Gomez purchased Jelly Belly‘s Sports Beans and was upset to find out that they were not as healthy as she was lead to believe.

The Sports Beans list “evaporated cane juice” instead of sugar on the label, and Gomez believes it’s in order to entice athletes to purchase them.

However, Jelly Belly has fired back and told her to read the nutritional information. In an official statement from the company, they said:

“No reasonable consumer could have been deceived by Sport Beans’ labeling – Gomez could not have seen ‘evaporated cane juice’ without also seeing the product’s sugar content on its Nutrition Facts panel.”

While it is true that listing “evaporated cane juice” is a bit deceptive, she probably should have read the entire label before she bought it!
