Hunter Jobbins, a student at Kansas State University, left his car unlocked and unattended, and thought nothing of the Kit-Kat candy bar he left sitting in his cupholder. He was only gone for 15 minutes.
He returned to his vehicle to find quite a surprise: His candy bar was gone and there was a handwritten note on a napkin sitting in place of the Kit-Kat. But nothing else was missing from his car.

The apology note read: “Saw your Kit-Kat in your cupholder. 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.”
Sorry and hungry — who hasn’t been there?
Jobbins told the Metro news, “When I came across it at first I was kind of upset and wondering what happened to my Kit-Kat, then I realized how funny it was that it happened so my frustration turned into laughter.”
But this story has far from a sad ending: Kit-Kat read the story on Twitter and offered to replace the candy bar for free.

The average retail price of a Kit-Kat bar in the United States is less than one dollar.
