When opening a bag of crisps, you usually know exactly what to expect – but one girl got a bit of a surprise when she found an unusual shape.
Rylee Stuart, 13, from Queensland, Australia, found one which was perfectly puffed on all three sides and was stopped in her tracks.
Instead of munching on it with the rest of the snacks, she set it aside for later.
Posting about it on TikTok, she decided to list it on eBay, starting at under a dollar.
Soon bids flooded in, reaching AUS$100,000 (£50,000) before it was taken down.
Now, after the crisp went viral with millions of views, the company behind the foodstuff has offered her AUS$20,000 (£10,000).
Rylee told 9News: ‘I was about to eat it, and I thought I better save it for later.
‘I saw $10,000 (on the listing), and I like screamed.’
The teen’s dad bought the packet and has tried to stake a claim to the prize – but Rylee insists because she found the crisp it should be all hers.
Speaking about when she heard the news of the gift from Doritos, Rylee said: ‘Yes I cried and yes I screamed because I wasn’t expecting this, and it just goes to show to all the people who said “Just eat it”, think next time before you eat that chip.
‘Obviously, this isn’t normal but things can happen.’
Vanita Pandey, chief marketing officer at Doritos told 9News: ‘We’ve been so impressed with Rylee’s boldness and entrepreneurial spirit, so we wanted to make sure the Stuart family were rewarded for their creativity and love for Doritos.
‘It’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Rylee and her family and we’ve loved following her story.’
