Honolulu (KHON) — The Rock pays it back in more ways than one.
Recently, Dwayne Johnson paid back what he picked up years ago by visiting his childhood 7-Eleven store.
Johnson posted his Instagram It reads, “We were kicked out of Hawaii in ’87, and after all these years – I’m finally back home to right this wrong.”
He mentions stealing a king-size Snickers bar from his neighborhood 7-Eleven. He didn’t steal a Snickers bar once—he stole a bar every day for nearly a year.
Like the famous chocolate bar’s slogan, “You’re not when you’re hungry,” Johnson admits these actions have eaten at his conscience for more than 30 years.
“I was broke as hell, so I would steal a king size Snickers from 7-11 every day for almost a year when I was 14 on my way to the gym,” Johnson wrote.
For more than three decades, he claimed to have banished the chocolate monster that had been gnawing at him for so long.
“I exercised [sic] I’ve had some great ghosts over the years (and I still have a few left 😉 so I know it’s really funny,” Johnson said. “But every time I come back home to Hawaii and drive by a 7-11, I go right through every Snickers bar they have. I always knew I needed to clean up.”
That’s what he did, and Johnson walked into the 7-Eleven he used to rob and bought every Snickers bar on the shelf, costing him $300.

“We can’t change the past and some of the stupid things we’ve done, but every once in a while, we can add a little redemptive grace note to that situation,” Johnson said. “Can put a big smile on some strangers’ faces.”
