Doritos rewards customer with $20,000 for discovering rare 'puffy' chip

Food

A 13-year-old Australian girl named Rylee has been rewarded big time by Doritos thanks to her findings while munching down on one of their famous chips.

While eating a bag of chips, she found the unusually puffy looking Dorito and instead of eating it, decided to document it on social media and ask her followers on how best to eat it.

The response overwhelmingly told her to NOT eat the puffy chip and instead put it on eBay to see how much it would fetch at auction.

She popped the chip on for just a $1 reserve and before long, Doritos Chief Marketing Officer Vandita Pandey spied the listing and decided to reward the 13-year-old for her “boldness and entrepreneurial spirit,” by giving her a cool $20,000.

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

Now that the she's gone viral, Rylee’s dad has been teasing his daughter that he’s contesting ownership of the golden ticket.

“Dad is saying that since he bought the packet, it’s his chip,” a gleeful Rylee told 9News. “But I ate the packet and found it, so I believe it is mine.”

Love it, Rylee!
