Boxes of Junior Mints® and Sugar Babies®

Plaintiffs in a false advertising class-action lawsuit filed against Tootsie Roll Industries in February 2017 moved to certify the class. The complaint alleges that the company deceptively uses slack-filled opaque packaging for Junior Mints® and Sugar Babies® candies that has 45% empty space. The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in April 2017. (Gordon et al v. Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-2664, C. D. CA.)
