Girl, 13, finds rare ‘puffy’ Doritos crisp…& gets bids of £10,000 on eBay

A RARE “puffy” Doritos crisp attracted bids of more than £10,000 after a 13-year-old girl put it on eBay.

Rylee Stuart, who lives in Australia, documented the quirky discovery on TikTok earlier this week in a video that has now racked up almost three million views.

The teen initially listed the uniquely triangular crisp online for £0.53.

“This is just an experiment, we’re not taking this seriously, we just want to see what happens,” she told her followers in the video.

However, Rylee was in for a shock when she quickly saw the crisp's value soar after receiving 65 bids from just 11 individuals.

It comes despite the average bag of Doritos costing less than £1.

As of Thursday, bids for the crisp stands at £10,800, although due to eBay rules it remains unclear how legitimate they are.

Speaking to 9News, Rylee said she “screamed” when she started to see bids of more than £5,000 popping up on the listing.

She said: "I was about to eat it, and I thought I better save it for later."

"My Dad is saying that since he bought the packet, it's his chop, but I ate the packet and found it, so I believe it is mine."

Her dad also joked that she was now his “favourite daughter."

The teen has also continues to posting regular updates on her TikTok channel as anticipation escalates about the sum of the final bid.

If a sale was to go through for the teen, it would become one the biggest recent sales for such an item online.

Only recently, a chicken nugget shaped like a character from popular video game "Among Us" was sold for $136,050 on the digital marketplace.
