Bid Now! Seahorse shaped Cheeto on Ebay (proceeds to go charity)Posted on Thursday, March 15th, 2012 at 11:24 am by Paul
Yes, you read it correctly. Here is the once in a life time opportunity to own your vary own Cheeto shaped like a seahorse. For those that aren’t familiar with Cheetos, they are a snack chip made by Frito-Lay. Currently the Cheeto has 31 bids at $100. See the auction for yourself on Ebay.
It was reported that a couple visiting the Florida Keys on vacation discovered the seahorse shaped chip and decided to auction it off and donate the proceeds to Reef Relief. Reef Relief is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving and protecting the coral reef ecosystem. I’m not sure how the idea of auctioning the chip off for a notable cause came about, probably at Sloppy Joes Bar over margaritas while listening to some Jimmy Buffett.
It is worth mentioning this is the second auction of the sea-horse Cheeto. The first winner paid the winning bid of $10.50 and asked that the couple relist the chip to further raise money for Reef Relief.
Please take note, that if you do a search on Ebay for Cheetos, you will get a rather bizarre variety of chip shapes for sale. Please take our warning, some chip shapes are not family viewing material.
