Junior Mints Being Sued For Underfilling Candy Boxes

You know when you buy a huge box of candy at the movie theater, then you open it and you’re super bummed to find out it’s half empty? Yeah, someone is finally taking a stand against that.

Biola Daniel from New York City just filed a federal lawsuit against Tootsie Roll Industries because she says they’re intentionally underfilling their boxes of Junior Mints.

Biola says she bought a box of Junior Mints last month and found it was 43% air inside. When she compared it with other candies, Milk Duds boxes were only 23% air and Good & Plenty boxes were 12% air.

“Competitors’ product boxes are similar in size yet contain far more candy. This demonstrates that it is possible to fit a greater quantity of candy into the defendant’s boxes.”

Biola filed this as a class-action lawsuit, so she’s hoping other people will join and she’s hoping anyone who’s been wronged by half-empty Junior Mints boxes will get at least $50.
