Krispy Kreme is once again in the legal fryer after a woman is holding them accountable for the alleged natural ingredients advertised in their delicious donuts.
According to freshly baked documents obtained by The Blast, Irina Agajanyan filed a class action lawsuit Friday against the Krispy Kreme Donut Corporation accusing them of engaging in a deceptive practice of selling donuts “With the words such as ‘blueberry’ and ‘maple’ in their names, which do not contain the named ingredients.”
Agahanyan specifically calls out the “Glazed Blueberry Cake Doughnut,” “Glazed Blueberry Cake Doughnut Hole,” “Maple Iced Glazed,” “Strawberry Iced,” and “Strawberry Iced with Sprinkles.”
She claims that purchasing the alleged fake fillings gave her a false sense of getting the proper nutrition that she needed, and claims had she known about the “lack of real ingredients,” they never would have been purchased.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Krispy Kreme has been accused of selling fake fillings; a similar class action lawsuit was filed in 2016 claiming the donut maker engaged in false advertising and mislead customers about the nutritional content of the fruit filling inside several of their donut products. That case was dismissed by the plaintiff in 2017.
Also in 2017, Krispy Kreme was on the receiving end of another class-action lawsuit for allegedly having misleading nutritional labels. That lawsuit was dismissed as well.
This time around, Agahanyan wants Krispy Kreme to stop selling any donuts with the words “Blueberry” and “Maple” in their name, and also for the donut giants to pay $1,000 per plaintiff in the class action suit.
The Blast reached out to Krispy Kreme for comment, and breakfast.
