Your bag of Cheetos could win you $50,000.
If you spot a weirdly-shaped Cheeto, snap a pic, and submit it to the Cheetos Museum — yeah, that’s a real thing now — for a chance to win big bucks.
Weekly winners, for both the Flamin Hot and Cheesy flavor categories, through Aug. 6 will score $5,000 each.
Then the top winners for each variety will face off for the chance to win $50K.
That’s a lot of cheese.

Winners will be determined based on the creativity of the cheesy snack’s shape description, and how closely the Cheeto resembles that description.
Even those who don’t participate in the contest can take part in the fun.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not! in Times Square is hosting a Cheetos Museum exhibit through the end of August, plastered with Cheeto walls, and holding display cases with oddly-shaped snacks. There’s also a sculpture of Cheeto mascot Chester the Cheetah, made out of the snack.
The idea for the contest was sparked from fans submitting photos to the Cheetos company with their unique findings.

“The truth is, the whole program was inspired by the fact that people would send us pictures of shapes, or even try to sell them,” Kimberly Scott, director of communications for Cheetos, told Food & Wine.
“Really, any Cheetos shape in any bag can be a masterpiece,” Scott added.
Now through August 6, submit a photo of your unique Cheetos shape with a description on CheetosMuseum.com.
Besides the chance to win $50,000, grand prize winners will also have their Cheeto displayed permanently in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! It’ll even appear in a new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! book.
