A Salty Seahorse Is On Sale To Save The Florida Reef

We all have heard the ridiculous things sold on eBay.  Recently a chicken nugget shaped like George Washington’s head gained national attention, selling for more than $8,000.

Here is another fun-food item up for grabs.  This time, buying this item will help a good cause.

A Virginia couple found the snack while vacationing in Florida.

They decided to sell it on the auction website.  It originally sold for more than $10 to a bidder.  That person responded, saying to keep the Cheeto and re-sell it again on eBay, but this time give the money to a charity.

The couple now plans to give 100% of the proceeds to Reef Relief, a group dedicated to preserving Florida’s coral reefs.

They listed the item with an $8,000 “buy it now” price — hoping Cheeto’s manufacturer Frito Lay will purchase the seahorse-shaped snack to help the charity.
