According to Reuters, Mattel filed a lawsuit and asked the court to send an order blocking the chip brand from using the Barbie name saying that it infringes on the Barbie trademark. The “Barbie-Que Honey Truffle” chips, were introduced early this summer.
“The association is so evident that upon seeing the packaging, representatives for Defendant’s celebrity partner queried whether Rap Snacks had obtained permission from Mattel,” the complaint says. “Indeed, Rap Snacks never requested or received any such permission.”
