UK man sentenced for selling fake Wonka chocolate bars

A business owner trading in Barnsley, UK, has received a suspended sentence for selling counterfeit Wonka chocolate bars.

Nathan Bennett (33) of Huddersfield was sentenced at Barnsley Magistrates Court this week after pleading guilty to selling the chocolate bars with incorrect labelling and allergy advice. He ran the Kandy Fix kiosk in the Alhambra Centre in Barnsley between August and December last year.

He was given 16 weeks of imprisonment suspended for 12 months, 10 days of rehabilitation activity and 100 hours of unpaid community work, and ordered to cover court costs of £3,723.01 and a £128 victim surcharge.

Authorities in the UK and Ireland recently warned that counterfeit Wonka bars had been encountered in the market and may be unsafe to east, particularly for people with allergies.
