    Default Philadelphia woman suing Dunkin' Donuts

    PHILADELPHIA ó A Philadelphia woman is suing Dunkiní Donuts, saying a worker mistakenly put sugar in her coffee, which ultimately caused her to go into diabetic shock.

    Danielle Jordanís lawsuit claims she asked for artificial sweetener to be added to her coffee during a June 2009 visit. Jordan claims she downed the drink and experienced dizziness, light-headedness and ended up making an emergency trip to the hospital.


    .A legal liaison for the Canton, Mass.-based doughnut chain told the Philadelphia Daily News she couldnít comment on the case. But she says employees only provide customers with the order they ask for.

    Jordanís lawyer, Kenneth Rodgers, says his client couldnít tell from the taste of the coffee that she got sugar instead of her preferred artificial sweetener. He says she didnít finish the drink before she fell ill.

    The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.



    ----I've ordered Rum & Diet Coke before and have mistakenly gotten regular Coke instead of Diet, resulting in a bad tummy ache and a case of the squirts. Maybe I could've sought unspecified damages.

    Bullshit on the bolded part.

    So, I guess Dunkin will now follow everyone else and tell you where the fucking cream and sugar is on the counter instead of putting it in there for you.

    My dad was allergic to caffeine, so guess what, he didn't drink anything that could be caffeinated unless he either made it or poured it himself.

    If one cup of coffee is enough to put you into diabetic shock, any person with an IQ over 70 wouldn't "trust" the person behind the counter to do it right 100% of the time.

    Just the law of averages will mean at some point someone will make a mistake.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Dave, I am diabetic as well, and there really is no difference in taste in sugar and artificial sweetener. I've become MUCH more diligent at drive-thrus for this very reason. One cup of coffee could most definitely have put her into shock, depending of several variables. Unfortunately, unlike caffeine and your dad, it is completely impossible to avoid sugars in your diet. Breads, potatoes, starches, all break down in your body and process into a form of sugar. It's a lot more complex than staying away from cakes and cookies and such. I'm not saying it's justifiable to sue, but I can certainly see where she's coming from. I'd like to know if she had a doughnut, too.

    Still, there's the irony of a woman that's a diabetic going to Dunkin' Donuts in the first place. Like what Daisy said, it's like going to the beach and complaining about getting wet, or getting sand in the crack of your ass.

    Wtf? Am I the only one who can tell right away if there is artificial sweetener in something? It has such a distinct taste to it.

    I taste a big difference..my mother is diabetic and not only can she tell if there is sugar or sweetener...she can tell you WHICH artificial sweetener....saccharine is easy, but the difference between equal and splenda is less

    anyway..how much sugar did they put in her coffee?....if her diabetes is so brittle that 2 packets of coffee would put her into a coma, don't you think she would order it black with the sweeteners separate?....that would be the prudent thing to do.

    Why ya gotta hate on those of us that like Diet Coke. That's it...I'm suing all regular Coke liking folks. I'm tired of the discrimination of not liking regular Coke. You've caused me severe emotional distress and deepened my anxiety and depression.

    I actually don't mind diet Coke, but if given the choice, I've got to go with the sugar variety. Up in the little town in Washington that my Dad and Brother live in, they have the bottles of Coke made from real sugar. It definitely has a better taste to it. The burn comes out better I think, which is why I like Coke better than the rest anyway. FEEL THE BURN!!!
