The internet, promptly, reacted as expected.
The seller said he found the oddly-shaped snack in a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

The seller, located in Burbank, Calif., posted that the shipping of the cheeto is free.
Well, thank goodness for that. $5 shipping for a nearly $100,000-dollar Cheeto? No way.
