Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Shell no: Taco Bell overcharged us for Chalupa Cravings Box, says New Jersey couple’s lawsuit”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A New Jersey couple is suing the taco chain after claiming the franchise in Green Brook, N.J., overcharged the two for their meals, reported NJ.com.

Nelson and Joann Estrella left their home for a nearby Taco Bell in May 2018 to purchase two Chalupa Cravings boxes. Each is comprised of a five-layer taco, Chalupa Supreme, crunchy taco, medium drink and cinnamon twists.

The TV ad claimed the meal costs $5 a pop, but after ordering two the pair was shocked to see they owed $12.18 before taxes, alleges the lawsuit.

When the Estrellas argued the price should be $10, an official at the restaurant countered that it wasn’t compelled to comply with the discounted cost as the ad asserts that prices may vary, according to the suit.

“You can’t tell someone you are going to charge them $5 in big bold print and then take it away with a fine print disclaimer,” explained the Estrellas’ attorney, Douglas Schwartz. “You can’t do that. It’s against the law.”
