Have you ever eaten food that you thought was unique? Well, you’re not the first person to experience this. With the rise of social media sites like Tik Tok, people all over the world have been able to capitalize off of one-of-a-kind foods. This was definitely the case for a 13-year-old Australian teen named Rylee Stuart. She was eating a bag of Doritos, and noticed that one was oddly shaped. It was a big, puffy chip, completely different from the standard flat shapes that the chip brand usually boasts. While the Queensland teen states that she was ‘thinking about eating the chip’ she decided to put it on her Tik Tok page to show the world her new find. This social media video generated over 2 million views, and many people expressed interest in buying the chip from Stuart. Who would have thought, right?

While many people have gotten absurd amounts of money from random food, such as the owner of the ‘Among Us’ nugget that sold in June on eBay for over 10,000, Stuart didn’t think it would ever happen to her. With the encouragement of friends and family, she decided to upload the chip to eBay after becoming Tik Tok famous. The chip garnered many bids from those interested in ‘ puffy chip one of a kind’ listing, and she even saw a bid for 10,000 dollars. Rylee Stuart said that she freaked out when she saw the bid. Of course, her family also jokingly decided to claim the chip as theirs. Her father joked that he actually bought the Doritos, so he said that the money from the eBay listing actually belonged to them. Nonetheless, it has been an interesting experience for their family.

The Doritos Australia company actually took notice of Rylee Stuart and her online listing. The chief marketing officer Vandita Pandey said that the company was ‘impressed with Stuart’s entrepreneurial spirit’ and ‘wanted to make sure that the Stuart family was rewarded for their creativity and love for Doritos.’ Doritos Australia decided to reward the family with 20,000 to thank them for their dedication to the brand. So even though eBay took the listing down after a few days, the dedication to the unique Dorito paid off for Rylee Stuart and her family. While she isn’t the first person to have a unique Dorito, Stuart and her family are thankful for the opportunity that the chip has rewarded them. So the next time you or a friend think that you don’t have anything unique, the story for the 20,000 Dorito should definitely come to mind. You never know what unique food you eat can pay off for you.
