Hunter Jobbins, a student at Kansas State University, got the attention of the Hershey’s chocolate company. One day, while he was in class, a hungry robber rifled through his car in order to steal one Kit Kat bar. As Jobbins was checking the rest of his car, he noticed a handwritten apology note.
The note, which was written on a napkin, read “Saw Kit Kat in your cup holder. I love Kit Kats so I checked your door and it was unlocked. Did not take anything other than the Kit Kat. I am sorry and hungry.”
Jobbins told the Huffington Post that “he had stepped away from his car ‘for maybe 15 minutes’ and returned to find a note scrawled on a napkin.”
Left my car for maybe 15 minutes in front of the dorms and I come back to this. College man
Jobbins posted the hilarious note on his Twitter account and, within days, the tweet quickly received some attention. Currently, it has been retweeted over 181,000 times and liked over 484,000 people. Hershey caught wind of the tweet and look action by sending him 6,500 bars of his stolen treat.
In honor of receiving an overabundance of his favorite treat, Jobbins allowed his classmates to take a Kit Kat from his car. According to the K-State Alumni Association, students flocked to his Toyota Camry in order to get his paws on the sweet treat.

After the event received a lot of attention, The Collegian asked Jobbins how he feels towards the person who broke into his car.
He stated that “If the Kit Kat thief is reading this or keeping up with this, I would love for you to come and tell me, and I’ll give you a big hug, a thank you and a lot of Kit Kats.”
Who knows, out of the crowds that showed up to land their paws on one of the free treats, they may have just managed to get another free Kit Kat.
