Sues Starbucks on $5 Million for Putting Too Much Ice!

"Starbucks is too icy with its customers" - says a woman who is suing the coffee chain for putting too many frozen cubes in its iced drinks. 

Lead plaintiff, Stacy Pincus, has filed a $5million class action lawsuit against Starbucks for filling its cups with so much frozen water that customers are only getting half of what they're paying for, says the lawsuit, represented by Steven Hart with Hart, McLaughlin & Eldridge in Chicago, according to Court House News. Once the barista adds ice, customers get a little over half those promised amounts, alleges Pincus - never mind that they pay for the full amount. 

In addition, the Seattle-based company charges more for iced drinks than for hot drinks and makes higher profits off of them. "In essence, Starbucks is advertising the size of its cold drink cups on its menu, rather than the amount of fluid a customer will receive when they purchase a cold drink - and deceiving its customers in the process" state the court documents, filed in Illinois.
