Harambe The Gorilla Shaped Cheeto Is On Ebay For $100K
Trying to buy a gift for that person who has everything? Have some spare cash laying around? Well, we have the perfect present for you. Currently at $99,999 on Ebay, this Hot Cheeto shares a familiar resemblance to the slain gorilla, Harambe.
Monday afternoon, user valuestampsinc had more than 100 offers which lead to the item’s current price tag.
The listing’s title reads “Gorilla Hot Cheetos – RARE – One of a King Cheetos – Harambe Gorilla.” I mean, it is a rather rare occurrence to find a snack food that mimics Harambe. That is not something you would see or eat everyday.
Valestampsinc story behind finding the Cheeto is fantastic. He writes, “I opened up a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheeto that looks like Harambe the gorilla.”
The Cheeto measures at 1.5 inches and, to your surprise, is spicy.

Shortly after the listing began receiving attention, a few other items shaped like the gorilla began appearing all over the auction site. One of which included “Harambe Gorilla Poop“…which looks oddly similar to a normal Cheeto.
The original Cheetos bag is not included in the asking price, but the auction winner will receive free shipping.
On May, 28 2016 Harambe was killed after a 3-year-old boy climbed into his inclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. Zookeepers believed that the gorilla was harming the boy and, therefore, would become a danger to staff. After the footage of the gorilla’s interaction with the young boy, he quickly became a meme. The internet tweeted about the gorilla so much that the Cincinnati Zoo had to shut down their twitter page.
Bid for this creative masterpiece before the auction ends. As the New York Daily News creatively pointed out, “as with Harambe’s life, all things must come to an end.”
