Ad banned for diss­ing avo­cado

- United Kingdom · Costa Coffee

Bri­tain’s big­gest cof­fee­house chain was banned on Wed­nes­day from re­peat­ing an ad­vert that im­plied its break­fast deals were a bet­ter bet than eat­ing an avo­cado.

The Ad­ver­tis­ing Stan­dards Au­thor­ity reg­u­la­tor found that the Costa Cof­fee ra­dio com­mer­cial dis­cour­aged the se­lec­tion of fresh fruit.

The ad­vert, which was broad­cast in June, can­not be aired again in its cur­rent form, it said.
