Doritos Offers Teen $20,000 for Rare ‘Puffy’ Chip Discovery

Last month, 13-year-old Rylee Stuart of Queensland, Australia, found a rare “puffy” chip in her bag of Doritos. 

Rylee shared a video of the chip on TikTok where it went viral with more than 4 million views.

Rylee asked followers what she should do with her discovery and they suggested putting the chip up for sale on eBay. She started receiving bids of several thousand dollars.  The story got so much attention that some marketing people at Doritos heard about this famous chip — and offered Rylee $20,000 for it!

“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,” Vanita Pandey, PepsiCo’s head of marketing for Australia and New Zealand told 9News

“It’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Rylee and her family and we’ve loved following her story,” she added. 

Moral of the story, look before you eat!
