Is Too Much Ice in Starbucks Coffee Worth $5 M

Is too much ice in Stabucks Coffee Worth $5 M? Several weeks ago Stabucks got hit with a lawsuit that they under-fill their hot lattes. Now a Chicago customer alleges in a new $5 M class-action lawsuit that they under fill their cold drinks by using too much ice.  NBC legal analyst Karen DeSoto says ‘This could be a valid argument.”

Ridiculous or legit?  In the lawsuit they claim that Starbucks has a black ‘fill line’ and that workers are instructed to fill the rest of the cup with ice. Ms. DeSoto appeared on the TODAY SHOW with investigative correspondent Jeff Rosen to discuss the matter. “The plaintiff clearly believes that this is an admission that Starbucks knew that they were doing something wrong.”

Starbucks told NBC News it’s “without merit. Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any ‘iced’ beverage.”

While the two lawsuits are both in their early stages, lawyers are grappling with the claims.
