Starbucks Corp.’s lineup of fruity summer drinks aren’t as fruity as their names suggest, a New York City woman is alleging in a proposed class action lawsuit that asks, “Where’s the acai?”

“Despite their names, and unbeknownst to consumers, the Mango Dragonfruit and Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refreshers contain no mango, the Pineapple Passionfruit and Pineapple Passionfruit Lemonade Refreshers contain no passionfruit, and the Strawberry Acai and Strawberry Acai Lemonade Refreshers contain no acai,” Joan Kominis said in the suit filed Friday in Manhattan federal court.
