Will they never learn? Earlier this year candy maker Hershey was sued for $5 million by a woman claiming that the carving of a smiling chocolate jack-o-lantern on bags of Reese’s candy led her to assume the contents would be similarly designed. Instead she was dismayed to discover that the bag was filled with undecorated disks of chocolate with a peanut butter filling.

Compare that account with one appearing in Thursday’s New York Post, which reports that “[t]he Hershey Company is being accused of ‘falsely representing several Reese’s Peanut Butter products as containing explicit carved out artistic designs when there are no such carvings in the actual products and the products are blanks.’”

The specific items inventoried in a class-action suit against the company include “Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin.”
