Hershey has made good on its promise to replace a Kansas State University student’s Kit Kat following a bizarre theft.
After leaving his car for a brief period, Hunter Jobbins returned to find that the Kit Kat in his cup holder had vanished, being replaced by a hand-written apology by a passerby who couldn’t resist the lure of chocolate covered wafers.
Jobbins posted about the incident in a viral Twitter post that soon reached Hershey. To make things good, the company filled his car with 6,500 bars, which Jobbins passed out on his campus.
“It was crazy. I honestly didn’t think any students would show up. I passed out around 4,000 to 5,000 Kit Kats, probably,” he said. But, he made sure to leave himself enough to get him “through the rest of the year.”
Even though the candy was replaced (and then some) Jobbins says he would “love to know who did this!” stating that it would be “his next dream come true”.
Vengeance will be his.
