Kit Kat Filled This Dude's Car with 6,500 Candy Bars After a Thief Stole His Kit Kat

A Kansas State University student grabbed Hershey's attention earlier this month, when he posted the handwritten note a hungry thief left behind after breaking into his car and stealing nothing but his Kit Kat bar. Now, the candy company has delivered on its promise to make the situation right for the student -- by filling his car with several thousand Kit Kat bars, of course. 

Just days after Hunter Jobbins’ photo of the handwritten apology exploded on Twitter (it's been retweeted more than 184,500 times now), Hershey's stuffed his car with approximately 6,500 Kit Kat bars, according to a report by The Huffington Post. Jobbins promptly invited a huge crowd of his classmates on campus to come by and grab a few for themselves -- you know, instead of breaking into his car again. 

But Jobbins didn't just give everyone a break, he made it rain Kit Kat bars. 

As for the sticky-fingered bandit, Jobbins told The Collegian he would love for the person to reveal their identity, saying, "I’ll give you a big hug, a thank you and a lot of Kit Kats." After all, they did leave this honest apology note:

Sure, you probably couldn't ask for a better ending to a story involving theft, but hey, maybe Jobbins and the mysterious candy robber will become friends over a nice Kit Kat bar some day.
