MANHATTAN, KS (WCMH) –The victim of a candy kleptomaniac had a very sweet ending to his story.

An anonymous thief took a Kit Kat bar from Kansas State University freshman Hunter Jobbins’ car on Sunday. The thief left a note for Jobbins, who said he had only been gone for 15 minutes.

“Saw Kit-Kat in your cup holder,” the note read. “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.”

News of this unfortunate event spread quickly, and reached the ears of The Hershey Company, who make Kit Kat bars in the United States.

The company came through in a big way, delivering 6,500 Kit Kat bars to Jobbins at Kansas State on Thursday.
