Evan Wilt had no idea the ridicule he was to receive from the masses simply for taking a bite of a Kit Kat — the whole Kit Kat. His then-girlfriend, Haley Byrd, snapped a photo of Evan's attempt at eating the chocolate treat, apparently his first one ever, and didn't sugarcoat (pun intended) how insane his approach was.
"'I don't think I've ever had a Kit Kat before,' my boyfriend remarks before doing THIS," she wrote on Twitter on May 31, alongside a photo of a huge bite taken out of all four sections of Evan's Kit Kat. "He had no idea why I laughed so hard," she wrote in a reply to the original tweet. "Oh, sweet summer child."
The internet was quick to jump onto the trolling bandwagon, as it usually is ready to do at a moment's notice, and Haley's tweet quickly went viral. However, the devoted girlfriend ended up defending Evan in the end, saying that though she understood everyone's outrage over his near-criminal activity, Evan is "a keeper."
A month later, however, Evan took the situation by the horns and won the entire internet back. "'I don't think I've ever proposed before,' I said before doing THIS," Evan's July 3 tweet read. "Sorry folks, [Haley] is forever taken."
That's right — Evan got down on one knee to propose to the woman who gave him embarrassing viral fame . . . with a gorgeous ring hidden inside a Kit Kat bar.
See the couple's Kit Kat journey ahead, from Evan's first bite straight to their adorable candy-themed proposal.
