And finally… delictable

Four customers of Burger King have filed a class action lawsuit alleging that the fast food chain’s trademark Whopper is smaller in real life than it looks in adverts.

The lawsuit, filed in the southern district of Florida, alleges that the burger looks about 35 per cent bigger in adverts published after 2017, CBS News reports.

Marketing images of the burger have grown bigger wile the “recipe or the amount of beef or ingredients contained in Burger King’s Whopper has never changed”, it states.

The same is true of other Burger King products including the Impossible Burger, the Big King and the Bacon Double Cheeseburger, it continues.

The plaintiffs are seeking monetary damages of an unspecified amount and for Burger King to either increase the size of its “overstated menu items” or change its ads.
