Woman buys 10,000 Mars bars,
drives off in limo
W 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."
