Today we reported on the woman who is suing a chocolate manufacturer because she asserts that the packaging does not accurately reflect the product supplied.

Surely this has to be a “first”.

US chocolate giant, HERSHEY, is being sued by Florida resident, Cynthia Kelly who claims that the company’s Halloween-themed peanut butter treats don’t match the packaging.

She argues that she only lashed out $4.49 ( £3.52) – due to the “cute looking” eyes and mouth shown on the packets of the peanut butter pumpkins, only to discover on opening the product that the facial features missing – indeed there were no markings whatsoever.

She claims that the company is being “materially misleading” in both its packaging, and videos on YOUTUBE – and is not only citing the Halloween Treats, but also a football-themed peanut butter product that doesn’t actually feature the laces seen on the packs.

In fact she is seeking damages for anyone in Florida who’s bought items including Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins, peanut butter bats, peanut butter footballs, and a Christmas assortment of peanut butter snowmen, stockings, and bells.

But how much is she claiming I hear you ask? 

Well her lawsuit is seeking at least $5m (£3.9m) or to put it another way 1.1m bags of peanut butter pumpkins.

Well let’s not do things by halves eh!

Definitely not seeking to sue us, after last week’s outing to Warley Barracks, this week took us on a trip to Kelvedon Hall when in Tudor times the house was owned by 13 generations of a single family – John Wright. Later during the 1930’s it was owned by Southend West’s MP, Henry “Chips” Channon, who was at one time married to the heiress of the Guinness brewing company.

If you missed what Margaret told me you can catch it all again here: –

I very much hope to see you again next week,
Scott
