Haribo Gifts Man Candy After He Finds Company's $4M Lost Check

But he called the reward “a bit cheap.”

A man in Germany recently stumbled upon something surprising on his walk home.

According to German newspaper Bild, the man saw a piece of paper on the ground, only to discover that it was a check for a massive sum of money.

The check was made out to candy company Haribo, issued by one of their retailers for the amount of 4.6 million euros.

The man – referred to as Anouar G. – contacted the candy company who told him to destroy the check.

Later, he received a “thank you gift box” from Haribo which included six bags of the company’s products – including candy.

Anuoar G. told Bild he found the thank you gift to be “a bit cheap.”

Haribo said the check was crossed, which means it could not have been presented for cash at a bank and only the company could have redeemed it.

According to Business Insider, Haribo says they sent Anuoar G. their standard thank you package.
