Impossible Whopper and Fries

Burger King Corporation has been marketing its Impossible Whopper as a meat-free alternative to regular hamburgers.

Box of Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix

Payday loan companies are known for their very high interest rates and their ability to trap consumers into loans that are very difficult to pay off.

Ghirardelli Classic White Premium Baking Chips

Ghirardelli Chocolate Company is known—unsurprisingly—for its chocolate. So is it deceptive when it sells “Premium Banking Chips” in “Classic White” that in fact are not white chocolate?

Package of Nestle's Premium White Morsels
