A Cwmbran sweet retailer has been prosecuted for selling fake Wonka chocolate bars for £3 which were actually repackaged supermarket-value bars.
Sweet66 Ltd pleaded guilty to eight offences of breaching trademark legislation and misleading consumers.
An investigation, led by Torfaen Council's trading standards, found that Sweet66 Ltd were selling fake Wonka chocolate bars for £3 that were actually repackaged Smart Price chocolate bars from ASDA, which they had bought for just 30p.
Newport magistrates court heard Sweet66 candy store in Cwmbran Shopping Centre had duped consumers and was fined £400 and ordered to pay £1000 towards the prosecutions costs.
Sweet66 Ltd, which is owned by Mr Alexander Gwillym, 39, of Llantarnam, Cwmbran, started selling the counterfeit chocolate bars in September 2012 and continued to do so, despite advice from the council's trading standards service.
