Chocoholics in Britain were left panicked after seeing a packet of Milky Way's Magic Stars with a warning on them.

He was also banned from returning to the supermarket.

Speaking to NBC 5, he said: "When my fine came due, I just decided I may as well pay with pennies and we'll make a big spectacle of it. It felt great. It really felt great." It has since been reported that the driver overpaid by $7.81, but that he was happy for them to keep the change.
