Famous “Kit Kat Thief” Tweet Earns Student 6,500 Candy Bars

You might remember this tweet from earlier in the week.

Hunter Jobbins was the unwitting victim of a very hungry candy thief who couldn't risk reaching into his open car and snatching a Kit Kat bar out of the cup holder.

The remorseful thief left a note on a napkin apologizing for taking the tasty treat.

A surprised Hunter tweeted a picture of the note, then he and his friends took bets on how many times it would get shared. By the next morning it had been re-tweeted more than 60,000 times.

It was a viral sensation and the timing couldn't have been more perfect: just one day before Halloween. The story of the Kit Kat thief was picked up by news networks and soon, the candy manufacturer got wind of what went down.

On Halloween day, they contacted Hunter and offered to replace the stolen chocolate.

True to their word, Kit Kat replaced the stolen bar and threw in 6,499 more for good measure. Hunter and some Kit Kat assistants filled his car and parked it on campus where they gave away as many chocolate bars as they could.

Did the Kit Kat thief show up? If they did, they certainly didn't reveal themselves!

The good-natured college student told The Collegian that he would be willing to forgive and forget, even offering to share his candies with him/her.

"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," said Hunter.
