Looks like Starbucks might not be the only company in hot water for skimping out on customers. Paul Hopkinson, a British construction worker, shared a video on Facebook in which he poured the contents of a large cup of Costa Coffee into a regular cup. The video has since gained nearly 12 million views. In the video, Hopkinson is able to pour the entire contents of the large cup into the regular cup, and says customers are paying extra for the larger size aren’t getting their money’s worth. In response, a representative for Costa Coffee writes, “Despite what it looks like I can assure you you're not being duped in anyway.”
A Northwest Ohio woman alleges that she was asked to leave a Pizza Hut because she was breastfeeding her son, despite an Ohio law which protects her right to do so. Page Martin and her husband were dining at a Pizza Hut when her 3-month-old son began to cry, reports local station Cleveland 19. In response, Martin began nursing her son and was shortly confronted by an employee, who told her to cover herself up. After refusing to cover her son with a blanket, the employee asked Martin to move to a private booth. After her refusal, Martin alleges that she was asked by the employee to leave the restaurant. Martin hopes her story will help to prevent similar situations from happening again.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ twist on the traditional bagel is back, but only for a limited time. The White Cheddar Bagel Twist is a plain bagel that is twisted and baked with Wisconsin aged white Cheddar on top. According to a release, the twisted shape is meant to make the bagel more portable and easier to eat. The White Cheddar Bagel Twist joins the wide variety of bagels offered at Dunkin’ Donuts, including cinnamon raisin, everything, poppy seed, and whole wheat. The chain has been serving bagels for 20 years and is the leading retailer of bagels in America.
