Woman Buys 10,000 Mars Bars, Drives Off in Limo

Posted on May 12, 2004 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

LONDON, England -- A woman stunned the staff at a north London Woolworths, when she bought more than 10,000 chocolate bars, had them loaded into her chauffeur-driven limousine and drove off.

The woman asked for every single Mars chocolate bar in stock -- 10,656 of them packed in 220 boxes – and paid for them in cash with 50 pound notes. The total bill was 2,131 pounds or $3,828.

"It was very, very strange but nobody thought to ask her why she wanted so many," a Woolworths spokesman said. "It would usually take us a month to shift that number of chocolate bars," he added. "Perhaps she has a sweet tooth."
