VIDEO: Man Gives Away More Than 6000 Bars of Chocolate

Bob is 93 years old, but you can call him Willy Wonka. For the past eleven years, he’s gone to his local Dollar General because that’s the day that they offer a $5 discount on any purchase of $25 or more. Bob does his shopping, and then, he buys three Hershey’s chocolate bars. Not for himself, though. He always gives two to the person working behind the counter, and he turns around and gives the third one to the person in line behind him.

Bob has been doing this for more than ten years now, and in that time, he’s given away more than 6000 chocolate bars. They’ve nicknamed him “the Candy Man.” What’s so fun is that Hershey’s found out about this and they have promised to keep Bob’s fridge stocked with as many candy bars as he can give away. They even shot a promotional video for him, talking to city residents about his incredible generosity.
