Vitaminwater, “vitamin” Should Not to be Taken Literally

When they say "hydrate responsibly" do they mean drink plain water without their "vitamins"?

Who do you think said this “no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage.”? At a quick glance you may assume that some health group is suing Coca-Cola, which owns and produces the brand, and telling them that if you looked at the nutritional value of their vitaminwater product no one could believe it was healthy. You’d be half right.

A non-profit public interest group is suing Coca-Cola on the grounds that the company’s vitaminwater products make unwarranted health claims. Basically, the vitamins in the water is sugar, and may be some more sugar, oh yeah and a vitamin supplement.

However, that above quote has come from Coca-Cola’s defense team. This has got to be one of the most idiotic defenses. They are basically saying all that advertisement and the use of the word “vitamin” in the product line is crap (kind of like their argument),

I think this is sometimes why I have no desire to be a trial lawyer because you have to come up with some “creative” argument just to throw a roadblock to the other side. Also you must have an odd mix of self-confidence and no-shame. Why? Because you have to be bold enough to make these asinine arguments (and you know how dumb they are when making them).

For more insight into this moronic argument check it out here.
