Who knew that crime would pay so much . . . and in chocolate no less!

A student at Kansas State University recently had a Kit Kat bar stolen from his car on campus. The thief, however, was nice enough to leave a note that 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.”

After the student posted a picture of the note on Twitter and it went viral, the smart marketing folks at Hershey sent him a replacement – plus an extra 6,499 Kit Kat bars for good measure.
According to a Nov. 8 AP story, the student “stuffed the bars in his car and handed them out around campus last week.”

Now if I could just get word to the folks at KFC about that chicken leg that was stolen from my car.
