Dan and Sara Bell said they purchased a bag of Cheetos at a gas station on their way out of the city last week and discovered the unusually shaped cheese puff inside the 99-cent bag, KTVT-TV, Dallas, reported Tuesday.
"I was putting them in my hand and I had eaten most of the ones in my hand, and one was left lying there. And I said, 'Oh my gosh, look at this. It really looks like a person in a robe praying,'" Sara Bell said.
Dan Bell said he looked over to see what had gotten his wife so excited.
"I said, 'Wow, it does look like a praying Jesus,'" he said.
The couple said the messianic snack, which they named "Cheesus," is missing a right arm, but it features a body, hair, a tiny face and appears to be wearing a robe.
Dan Bell said they are considering placing the item up for sale on eBay.
"How much do you think we should ask for it? It could be 25 cents, could be 25 dollars. If it's only 25 cents, we're just going to eat it," he said.
