“It’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Rylee and her family and we’ve loved following her story,” she added.

Rylee told the outlet she had intended to eat the chip but then had second thoughts. “I was about to eat it, and I thought I better save it for later.”

“Dad is saying that since he bought the packet, it’s his chip. But I ate the packet and found it, so I believe it is mine,” she added.

Rare food-based auctions have attracted huge bids in the past.

Way back in 2004, a grilled cheese sandwich that appeared to feature the face of Virgin Mary was sold for $28,000, the BBC reported.

More recently, a McDonald’s chicken nugget shaped like a character from online game, “Among Us” was sold on eBay for $100,000, The Guardian reported.
