"That's enough sugar to last me a lifetime," joked Hunter Jobbins, a sophomore at Kansas State University.

On Sunday, he posted to Twitter a note that was left in his unlocked car. He said he was only gone for 15 minutes, but it was too late for a Kit Kat he had left inside.

The note read: "Saw Kit Kat in your cup holder. 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"

"My initial reaction was a little bit of anger, but after reading the note, I couldn't help but laugh at how funny it was," he told InsideEdition.com. "Any anger I had was gone afterwards."

The post quickly went viral, and got the attention of none other than the Kit Kat company.

That's when the candy company responded on Twitter, "WHO DOES THAT?! Shoot us a DM and we'll replace it for you."

Sure enough, the company replaced the Kit Kat missing from the student's car... and included 6,499 more along with it.

So, in case there are any other "hungry" students on campus, Jobbins filled his car with the Kit Kats Friday morning and handed them out to fellow students, "rather than having someone get in my car and take one."

He said he gave most of them away, but kept a sizeable stash for his parents and his roommates.

Although several people have come forward and admitted to being the thief who stole his original candy bar, Jobbins said he still can't be sure who the real Kit-napper might be.
