The suit suggest the Pepsico marketing team claims the product consists of high-value ingredients  and “No Sugar Added,”  without saying there is no need for additional sugar because its overloaded with it anyway. 

Consumers are angry because the product sold at a premium price despite the inferior ingredients and chock full of sugar.
