The Tesco Jaffa Cake Story Taking Over Twitter

Let’s be honest – sometimes those supermarket self-checkout machines can be testing. But one lucky teen in Bristol got far more than he bargained for.

Josh Knight was buying a packet of Jaffa Cakes at the self-service machine when he was given too much change.

Josh paid for the 59p snack using a £1 coin, but miraculously got £1.41 in change back.

Taking Twitter to thank Tesco for their generous error, Josh was then greeted with a reply back.

Check out their hilarious exchange.




People on Twitter have since congratulated Josh for his good luck, and made fun of Tesco in the process.

One user tweeted to Josh: ‘Every little helps.’

Whilst another tweeted: ‘Can you DM me the store Josh. I’m hungry.’


Ah, the power of social media.
