The Search is on For a Weird-Shaped Cheeto

Have you ever opened a bag of Cheetos and admired the shape of the cheesy snack? This may sound odd, but if the Cheeto resembles and actual object, we recommend saving the parcel. Frito-Lay is willing to pay their snack fans $55,000 for a bizarre shaped Cheeto.

Yes, that is right, before popping the snack in your mouth, inspect the item. If selected by the company, the weird Cheeto will appear in an NYC museum dedicated to the findings.

Once Frito-Lay finds enough specimens to complete their display, the world can view their findings inside the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Times Square. It is estimated that there is going to be around 128,900 oddly-shaped Cheetos in the museum.

Fans of the snack will get the chance to be in an “infinity room” where they can view the Cheetos in, what appears to be, an endless hallway. From body builders to dolphins, fans can view all of the bizarre entries online. If there are specific entries that speak to you, Cheetos recommend you vote for your favorite entry.

This is not the first time the company has held this contest. Last year was the first time the contest ran and the American public was offered $60,000 for their weird Cheeto.

If you managed to get your hands on a possible entry, make sure to save the item. To enter the competition, you will need to take a photo of your findings. After uploading the photo, a clever description is needed to describe what the public is viewing. People can also upload their submissions on both Twitter and Instagram just make sure to either use the hashtag #CheetosMuseum and #Contest.

Two winners will be announced ever every week until August 6th. Each weekly winner will receive $5,000 and will make it to the grand finale. The Cheeto that receives the most votes will then win an additional $50,000.
