Your Cheeto Could Be Worth Up to $60,000
I can't enjoy this delicious bag of Cheetos because I'm afraid I'll eat my ticket to paying off my debt.
Not every Cheeto is created equally, but if you find the lucky one, it could pay. Big time.
Frito-Lay is holding a contest looking for the "masterpiece" of Cheetos to put in their Cheetos Museum.
If you have the most uniquely-shaped Cheeto, you should submit it to the museum along with a description of what it looks like.
The contest rules state entries must be in by August 15th. Looks like I have a lot of Cheetos to go through until then.
Once you submit your photo to the Cheetos Museum, you have a shot to win a huge chunk of change. A panel of judges will rank the photos by their visual interest, buzz-worthiness and creativity.
The top 10 scorers will receive $10,000 and the top four will advance to a public voting period.
The winner of the public voting that takes place on August 24-31 will receive a $50,000 prize.
I tried looking through my Cheetos at lunch and this is the best I could come up with.
From left to right:
- A Sperm Whale
- The Letter 'J'
- A fork missing two prongs
- A criss-crossy thingy
- A snake
I'm pretty sure these won't grab me the big prize, but it was fun digging through the bag.
I was hoping to find a winning Cheeto but the others I have seen already submitted to the museum are incredible. You can see them HERE.
If you don't find the best Cheeto, you still have two other ways to win really cool stuff.
If you find one of the ten wrapped game pieces that have been placed in your bag of Cheetos, you could win a trip for four to either New York City, Washington D.C., Miami, San Diego or Los Angeles.
Another way to win is if you Tweet or Facebook an image of a Cheetos snack and register online. You then will be entered for a chance to win a one-year supply of Cheetos.
Good luck, and happy snacking friends!
