San Diego County resident Joseph Brungard is bitter with Ghirardelli Chocolate Co. Brungard sued the iconic Bay Area chocolatier Thursday claiming that packages of Ghirardelli’s individually-wrapped, single-serving chocolate squares routinely contain fewer pieces than advertised. “Ghirardelli enjoys revenues of up to $500 million annually—likely in part from the money it saves by omitting chocolates from its packages,” wrote Brungard’s lawyer, Craig Nicholas of Nicholas & Tomasevic.

Nicholas opened the complaint with famous line from Forest Gump’s mother about a life being like a box of chocolates: “You never know what you’re going to get.”
