Kansas State Student’s Tweet About Stolen Kit Kat Goes Viral—Hershey’s Response Is Amazing
Hershey's gave this KSU student quite the break.
If you thought you had a lot of Halloween candy left over, think again. Kansas State University student Hunter Jobbins got more chocolate than he could have ever imagined. And it all started out because he never got to eat a Kit Kat bar he left in his car.
Jobbins parked his car in front of the dorms where he lived to go inside briefly. He left his car unlocked with a Kit Kat bar in the cup holder.
Left my car for maybe 15 minutes in front of the dorms and I come back to this. College man pic.twitter.com/KlDx5BtXLX

After about 15 minutes, he came back to his car to find that the Kit Kat was gone, a handwritten note left in its place. According to a tweet he posted to Twitter, the note 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.”

Little did Jobbins know that this tweet would go viral. He started getting more and more likes and retweets, and the Hershey’s Company even responded tweeting, “Who steals someone’s Kit Kat?! WHO DOES THAT?! Shoot us a DM, and we’ll replace it for you.”
“I was getting 500 likes a minute,”Jobbins told The Topeka Capitol-Journal. “My phone—I thought it was going to explode. It was just a crazy ordeal.”
According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, Hershey delivered 6,500 Kit Kats to Jobbins, packing the bars into his Camry. So now, if students were hungry for a Kit Kat, they could take one, guilt-free!
Jobbins passed the candy out from his car. “Any students who want Kit Kats can come by and take some,” he told the Topeka Capital-Journal. “We want to share the wealth, if you know what I mean.”
