$50,000 For A Uniquely Shaped Cheeto? Yup The Cheetos Museum Is Ready To Pay Up!


Do you think you have an over active imagination? Do your friends make fun of you for constantly finding patterns in random things? Well, you can now put your unique skills and your love for Cheetos to the test and try and find a uniquely shaped Cheeto and earn some big bucks!

If you find a  Cheeto is in an unusual shape, it just might be worth photographing, submitting to the Cheetos Museum for inspection, and — potentially — saving for display in the real-life exhibit of odd-shaped cheesy puffs.

Both Flamin’ Hot and traditional Cheesy Cheetos are eligible for the competition, organized by the snack company. Anyone can submit their discovery to the official Cheetos Museum website, where the images are proudly saved and displayed in all their amateur glory, but only one submission per week takes home a $5,000 prize.

The competition, which started at the end of May and runs through August 6, will then put the weekly winners head-to-head for the ultimate prize of $50,000. That’s not bad for a bag of puffs that runs a couple bucks. (Interested consumers can also submit photos on Twitter or Instagram, although those payouts are less lucrative.) reports Food & Wine

Do you really need an excuse to have more Cheetos? Well this is the perfect one for you. Even if you don’t find something prize worthy, you will still have a great time bugging your friends and family with your crazy shaped theories.
