BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A woman is suing the jelly bean company, Jelly Belly, because their “sport beans” have more sugar than she thought.

Sport Beans are advertised as an exercise supplement containing carbohydrates, electrolytes, and vitamins.

Jessica Gomez contends that “Sugar is not found in the ingredient list of defendant’s product”. Instead, evaporated cane juice is listed.

The label does say that one serving of “Sport Beans” has 17 grams of sugar.

Jelly Belly says in response says “This is nonsense. No reasonable consumer could have been deceived by Sport Beans’ labeling. Gomez could not have seen evaporated cane juice without also seeing the product’s sugar content on its Nutrition Facts panel.”
