    More than just the lawsuit why would you microwave HaloTop? I don’t think that consistency is very pleasant when melted even slightly. It’s façade depends on a delicate balance of cold resistance and flavor, gotta love it.

    In reference to the lawsuit, that is one of the most convoluted arguments for why you associates a clearly labeled food product as being the regular version. If the suit is serious and not just a half-microwaved ploy for a possible windfall, I really want to know their thought processes. Or opinions on life, must be wild.

  • The right to frivolous lawsuits is the reason my parents left everything to immigrate to America, land of opportunity.

    No but in all seriousness, this is a piece of weird news to which your reaction should only be #smh or, even status: cannot. I’ve had Halo Top ice cream and have never been under the

    The right to frivolous lawsuits is the reason my parents left everything to immigrate to America, land of opportunity.

    No but in all seriousness, this is a piece of weird news to which your reaction should only be #smh or, even status: cannot. I’ve had Halo Top ice cream and have never been under the illusion that it’s anywhere close to “real” traditional ice cream. I like it but it’s a “frozen dessert” that’s a less caloric alternative to ice cream. Like sorbet.

  • Coca-Cola defended a suit against their Vitamin Water brand saying the advertising was misleading. Coke’s lawyers said that no one could possibly be stupid enough to believe that Vitamin Water was healthy. I predict a similar defense will be used here. Successfully.

  • People jump to sue way too often. It should be saved for real problems so that are courts can focus and spend time on issues that matter.

  • Welcome to America - even healthy foods experience litigation. Does anyone remember the Honest Tea law suit?

  • If this is Halo Top trolling us, then hats off. Otherwise, I just lost 20 seconds of my life.

  • Lawsuit by word association: Halos are yellow and so is butter so the obvious conclusion is that this corporation is misleading consumers, your honor!

  • $6.99 x 1 pint of Halo Top = damages

    What false, deceptive and mislabeled words did Queens NY use to get him to move their? (I can say this, I lived their for 5 minutes).

  • This is truly comical. I am not going to sue SmartWater because my grades have not improved while drinking it throughout college. If we took every label to be true, pigs would fly. Our world is cluttered with false advertising and while that is an issue in and of itself, I do not think suing a company

    This is truly comical. I am not going to sue SmartWater because my grades have not improved while drinking it throughout college. If we took every label to be true, pigs would fly. Our world is cluttered with false advertising and while that is an issue in and of itself, I do not think suing a company for s $6.99 pint of ice cream is the way to go about it. I hope there is follow up to this story because as insane as it is I would love to see how this unfolds. I’m assuming he won’t win, but trump did become president after all....

  • As a paralegal, i am curious as to the damages claimed and i wish the article had addressed that. This does seem silly, but don't think for one minute that this company didn't do some research and design the packaging to do exactly what it did - entice someone to buy the product as an alternative to

    Most of us would say well, I won't be spending $6.99 on that again. This guy went a different route. People who want to restrict access to the court system to matters only they consider serious do a disservice to the system.

    Our courts dispense with frivolous suits and levy sanctions every day, coast to coast and border to border. They just don't make for interesting headlines. This does.
