On Monday, Johnson shared another story from his upbringing in which he shared he stole a king-sized Snickers bar from a 7-11 in Hawaii as a pre-workout meal when he was 14-years-old.

“The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me,” said Johnson on a Facebook post.

In order to exorcise “this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at [him] for decades”, Johnson bought every Snickers bar the store had and left them for anyone that needed a snack.

He also picked up the tab for all the people who were waiting to buy something inside the store.

“We can’t change the past and some of the dumb stuff we may have done, but every once in a while we can add a little redeeming grace note to that situation — and maybe put a big smile on some stranger’s faces,” said Johnson.
