After it was discovered in the 1300s, you couldn’t walk through a medieval village without people trying to hustle you into buying imitation Shrouds of Turin. Echoing history, yesterday’s revelation that a Hot Cheeto that looks like Harambe existed spawned a number of imitators. 

The internet was amazed when an eBay user decided to auction off his Harambe-looking Cheeto (which may or may not look like Harambe), and bidding for the rare artifact shot up exponentially, with the closing offer nearly $100,000.

Smelling that sweet dead gorilla, puffed snack money, imitators and counterfeiters have taken over eBay. 

Here are a couple that have popped up, but do NOT be fooled. These are fake. 

Off Brand Harambe Hot Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos – Harambe Gorilla

“This is a brand new Harambe great value cheeto. Obviously since this is the great value version of cheetos the cheeto Harambe is not as crisp as the original cheeto Harambe.”

Please note: That is NOT a Cheeto that looks like Harambe.

Gorilla Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos – Standing Harambe Gorilla

“One of a kind Standing Solemn Harambe Cheeto, found in a bag of Original Crunchy Cheetos. 

Features a solemn stance and highly detailed facial features. Truly one-of-a-kind. “

Please note: That is NOT a Hot Cheeto that looks like Harambe. That may not even be a Cheeto. 

Harambe Hot Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos – Harambe Gorilla

“Harambe king stance 

Bag not included 

No returns 

As is”

Please note: That is CLEARLY two Cheetos glued together to look like one Cheeto that looks like Harambe. 

Gorilla Cheetos – RARE – One of a Kind Cheetos Puffs – Harambe Gorilla Poop

“I opened up a bag of Cheetos Puffs and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheeto that looks like a poop from Harambe the gorilla. This item is one of a kind! It measures up to about 2 inches in length. This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items! Please Pay with PayPal.”

Please note: $11 is a pretty good deal for a Cheeto Puff that looks like Harambe’s poop. 

I would jump on that if I were you.
