Ha! When it was revealed that frozen dessert chain CremaLita did not have low-fat or fat-free ice cream, we should have known there would be a lawsuit. The Post reports that Stephen Brandt sued Crema Lita, blaming his "severe health problems, including but not limited to cardiovascular problems, mobility problems and cancer [as well as the] negative self-esteem issues [that the] social stigma [of] excess weight gain carries [in today's culture]" on the misadvertised treat. But a judge just threw out the case because Brandt's diet wasn't that great to begin with. CremaLita's lawyer wrote:
What Brandt fails to mention is that he regularly eats real ice cream, McDonald's and Wendy's cheeseburgers, french fries, pepperoni pizza, beer, corn chips, donuts, cookies, hard cheese, eggs, bagels, peanut butter, Chinese take-out meals and pasta, [and] that he never exercises.
Apparently Brandt also "admitted putting crumbled cookie toppings" on CremaLita. It's the crumbled cookie defense!
And yes, we remember the Non-Fat Yogurt Seinfeld episode.
