Getting burglarized will always leave a sour taste in our mouths (no matter how small or insignificant the stolen object was to us). And it looks like The Hershey Company didn’t want that sour taste to last when Hunter Jobbins, a student at Kansas State University, found out that someone stole a Kit Kat bar from his car.
Usually no one would blame a robber for a missing chocolate bar. But this Kit Kat thief did something different from most criminals: he or she left a note of apology scribbled onto a napkin in messy handwriting: “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 explained that he only left his car unlocked while he ran to his dorm. When he got back, the robber’s note replaced the chocolate bar.
Although the crime may not be jail-worthy, Jobbins was left with a hollow, chocolate-less void in his stomach. And so what if he did leave his car unlocked? It was still his bar of chocolate.
But when he posted the note to Twitter–which then went viral–Hershey’s went above and beyond in solving Jobbin’s Kit Kat crisis. They personally delivered 6,500 Kit Kat bars to Jobbin at his campus… and we’re only a little bit jealous.

Since that much chocolate is definitely too much for one person alone, Jobbins decided to share some of Hershey’s generosity by giving out free Kit Kats to other students, too. Hershey’s may be a massive corporation earning a ridiculous profit each year, but the company’s certainly no Scrooge.
