If you were to come across a ‘puffy’ crisp in your Doritos packet, you’d probably think it was mildly amusing and the just wolf it down without a second thought.

Turns out that decision could cost you around £10,000, seeing as one teenage girl has received a 5-figure reward from Doritos themselves after discovering the anomaly in her pack.
Rylee Stuart, 13, from Queensland found the rare crisp which was perfectly puffed on all three sides, and thought it would be funny to make a TikTok about it and list the item on eBay.

Bids reached AUS$100,000 (£50,000) on eBay before the listing was taken down (blatantly trolls with no intention to actually purchase the crisp), but the clip on TikTok went so viral that Doritos offered Rylee AUS$20,000 (£10,000) as a reward. Not bad at all.
Rylee told 9News: ‘
I was about to eat it, and I thought I better save it for later.
I saw $100,000 (on the listing), and I like screamed.
On Doritos paying her ten grand:
Yes I cried and yes I screamed because I wasn’t expecting this, and it just goes to show to all the people who said “Just eat it”, think next time before you eat that chip.
Vanita Pandey, chief marketing officer at Doritos 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.
It’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Rylee and her family and we’ve loved following her story.
What a world. Fair play to Rylee for having the idea to make a TikTok about the crisp, but even she couldn’t have imagined that it would go so viral and result in a ten grand cash injection. I guess Doritos really did appreciate the publicity that much.
What’s really weird about this though is that puffy Doritos used to be a thing years ago. They were called Doritos 3D and looked exactly like Rylee’s crisp, just smaller:
I guess we can expect a Doritos 3D comeback in the near future. Otherwise what are they gonna do with Rylee’s crisp? Put it in a museum? Wouldn’t be too shocking at this point.
