Return "sweet" fruit that isn't sweet?

Would you return fruit advertised as "sweet" to the grocery store for a refund if you found it was not in fact sweet?

I bought some cherries from a local grocery store (Publix, not Whole Foods or Trader Joe's) last week that were advertised as "sweet." They were sold in sealed bags, so no sampling possible prior to purchase. It turned out that while about 10-20% were sweet, to my tongue most of the cherries were more sour than sweet. There weren't any moldy ones, and they all seemed juicy, just not sweet.

Would you have returned the cherries?
