Among the “classy” fast food restaurant chains, there are a few that are so popular that people look past the fact that most of their food is from a freezer, and continue to eat there on a regular basis.
We have Applebee’s.
And TGI Fridays.
No matter how many times we leave with stomach aches, or how many times people tell us the food here is “not real food,” we still go back—time and time again—buying their products and falling in love with their unhealthy and fattening food.
As it turns out, however, not everyone is truly happy with the big brands and names of these high-class establishments. Recently, one woman has filed a $5 million lawsuit against TGI Fridays because she’s shocked to know that their “Potato Skin” potato chips contain no potato skins at all.
The lawsuit, that wasfiled on Wednesday in New York’s Southern District Court, states that “the chips contain potato flakes and potato starch, but no skins.” Therefore, Solange Troncoso is suing the company entirely.
Troncoso states in the lawsuit that the reason she’s so “upset” is because she believed the potato chips were “providing a healthy alternative to snacking,” as potato skins are so often associated with “healthy eating.” When she found out that there were no potato skins in the chips at all—well, she felt played.
But, Dan Bernstein is asking the question we all want answers to:
A woman is suing TGI Fridays because their potato skin snacks do not contain potatoes. Can I sue for all the times their name has lied to me Monday though Thursday?
