The Starbucks coffee chain is facing a $5 million lawsuit over what some observers might consider an odd complaint. The suit alleges that Starbucks puts too much ice in its iced coffee.
The suit states: “Starbucks is advertising the size of its Cold Drink cups on its menu, rather than the amount of fluid a customer will receive when they purchase a Cold Drink — and deceiving its customers in the process.”
Jamie Riley, a spokesperson for Starbucks, told CNN that the company believes the claim is without merit. Riley told CNN: “Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any ‘iced’ beverage. If a customer is not satisfied with their beverage preparation, we will gladly remake it.”
