He noticed that a single packet of 'American' Cheetos were being sold for an extortianate £6.99

Sharing the photo of this crisps on his Facebook page, the man wrote: "£7 quid crisps!! What's it all about?? Leicester Square tube."

He wasn't the only one outraged by the price, as many left a comment on his post.

One user wrote: "As an American, I can say they are not worth that."

While another added: "Mad isn't it. My son noticed that our off licence in Essex sells the exact same thing for £2."

"They're £1.40 where I live," wrote a third, asking, "Who wants them for a fiver including postage?"

While another chimed in: "We went to a newsagent by Canon Street the other way that wanted £20 for twenty Marlboro. We laughed and walked out."

Others said that even with added expense of importing items from the US, they usually only cost just over £2.
