ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- One of the country's top-rated grocery stores has come under fire from two shoppers who are disappointed with one of its frozen desserts.
Wegmans is being sued over its vanilla premium ice cream in a lawsuit alleging there is no vanilla in it at all.
On Wegmans' website, the store brand's premium vanilla ice cream says it is made from cream, skim milk, liquid sugar, milk, egg yolks and natural flavor. To note, the ingredients do not explicitly state "vanilla" or even "natural vanilla flavor."
The lawsuit says consumers expect vanilla ice cream to be flavored by "real vanilla" from a vanilla plant.
The plaintiffs allege Wegmans' ice cream gets its vanilla flavoring from non-vanilla sources, which they say is misleading to consumers.
