Hershey Fills College Student’s Car With Kit Kat Bars After His Was Stolen
More Kit Kat bars than he can count make for a happy ending to a college student’s woeful tale of his candy bar getting stolen.
Kansas State University student Hunter Jobbins recently found a note in the cup holder of his car.
It was an apology.
From the person who stole the candy bar Hunter had in his car.
He shared the note on Twitter and the post went viral.
Left my car for maybe 15 minutes in front of the dorms and I come back to this. College man pic.twitter.com/KlDx5BtXLX

The folks at Hershey immediately saw an opportunity.
First, they sent Hunter a box of Kit Kats.
A nice gesture. He was very appreciative.
He told, USA Today, “So I got a box in the mail with a card saying ‘Saw your Kit Kat got stolen, hopefully this makes up for it.’ It was really nice of them to do that.”
That was just the beginning.
Hershey saw the opportunity for a marketing stunt.
They filled Hunter’s entire car with Kit Kats!
6,500 of them and had him pass them out around campus.
