A New York woman has started a class-action lawsuit against Kellogg's over the company's Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts, claiming that the sugar-laden pastries don't have enough strawberries in the filling.

"The strawberry representations are misleading because the product has less strawberries than consumers expect based on the labeling," the lawsuit states. "The amount of strawberry ingredients is insufficient not merely to provide the nutrient benefits of strawberries but to provide a strawberry taste."
