Florida woman sues Hershey for $5 million over ‘misleading’ Reese’s packaging

News


She was deceived by this treat.

A Florida woman is taking action against The Hershey Company, claiming it “deceived” customers with “misleading” packaging on Reese’s seasonal chocolates.

Cynthia Kelly of Tampa is suing the chocolate giant for $5 million because she claims the packaging and actual contents don’t match.

For example, the pumpkin-shaped chocolate does not have cutouts for eyes and noses as the packaging suggests, and the football shape resembles an egg, according to the lawsuit filed in Middle District Court in Florida.

“Hershey labels for the products are materially misleading and many consumers have been deceived and misled by the images on the product packaging,” says the lawsuit, viewed by The Post.

“This is a class action lawsuit against Hershey for falsely representing several Reese’s Peanut Butter products as containing explicitly sculpted artistic designs when there are no such carvings in the actual products,” the suit states.

The bizarre lawsuit came after Kelly bought pumpkin-shaped candies from Aldi for $4.49, believing they “contained a cute sculpture of a pumpkin’s mouth and eyes, as pictured on the ‘product packaging’.

She said she would have left the chocolates behind if she had known the sculpted face wasn’t actually included on the snack-sized Reese’s.

“The Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins product that Plaintiff purchased did not contain any of the artistic mouth or eye sculptures depicted on the label,” the lawsuit states.

The suit features not only the pumpkin shapes, but also ghosts, bats, footballs, snowmen and bell-shaped candy bars, several of which were photographed in the costume.

She also claimed that Reese’s packaging was not always “misleading” and that “two or three years ago” the products matched its packaging and did not display faces.

Kelly also cited numerous YouTube videos, in which creators claimed Reese “lied” to them and “didn’t keep her promises.”

The class action will cover “all consumers in the State of Florida who purchased any of the products.”

The New York Post has contacted Hershey for comment.
