Here’s Why Kit Kat Gave This Student 6,500 Candy Bars
College student Hunter Jabbins had a bit of a scare last week when, after leaving his car unlocked for 15 minutes, he returned to find things amiss.
Left my car for maybe 15 minutes in front of the dorms and I come back to this. College man pic.twitter.com/KlDx5BtXLX

“I am sorry and hungry,” the anonymous confessor wrote.
Things might have ended there, but Hunter took to Twitter to share his story. Kit Kat got wind of the story, and quite frankly? They were outraged. “Who steals someone’s Kit Kit?!” they wrote. “WHO DOES THAT?!”
@jabbins Who steals someones Kit Kat?! WHO DOES THAT?! Shoot us a DM and we'll replace it for you 🍫

They reached out to Hunter via Twitter, requesting that he DM them in an effort to allow him to make things right.
Boy did they ever — 6,500 times over. That’s the number of Kit Kat bars they filled Hunter’s car with, just in time for National Candy Day!

Ever the giver, Hunter shared the wealth with his entire campus (no word on whether or not the original thief was among them).

Dang. And we thought we had it good with the leftover Halloween candy (shamers be darned)! Congratulations on turning your lemons into lemonade, Hunter! Er, missing candy into extra!
