Woman buys 10,000 Mars bars, drives off in limo

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A woman with an apparently insatiable sweet tooth stunned staff at a British shop when she bought more than 10,000 chocolate bars and had them loaded into her chauffeur-driven limousine.

The woman asked staff at a north London Woolworths branch for every single Mars bar in stock -- 10,656 of them packed in 220 boxes -- and paid for them in cash with 50 pound notes, a Woolworths spokesman said on Wednesday.

The total bill was 2,131 pounds ($3,828).

"It was very, very strange but nobody thought to ask her why she wanted so many," the spokesman said.

"It would usually take us a month to shift that number of chocolate bars," he added. "Perhaps she has a sweet tooth."


I'm trying to think of any reason you would need more than 10,000 chocolate bars in a hurry and the only things that pop to mind involve weird sexual fetishes. I'm thinking there aren't many sane and normal reasons to need that many candy bars and need them immediately. Most people would have been satisfied having the order shipped. I'm surprised 220 boxes actually fit into the limo. It must've been huge.
