A Queensland woman has put up for sale an unusual and rare ‘Siamese Pizza Shape’, with a dazzling asking price of $100,000.
Chantelle Matson, a high school teacher in Ipswich, posted the Siamese cookie for $5,000 on Facebook Marketplace, but has made it clear that she will only take offers of “nearly $100,000.”
“We all know that pizza tins are Arnott’s best savory snack, but what if you find a double version of your favorite snack?” the ad read.
Chantelle Matson posted an ‘unusual and rare’ Siamese Arnott’s Pizza Shape (pictured) for $100,000 on Facebook Marketplace on Tuesday
The price is listed as $5,000 but Ms. Matson will only accept bids closer to $100k due to its rarity
The 2-for-1 deal is stored with care, sealed in a plastic container, postage prepaid and wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure the cookie is delivered ‘assembled’.
Making sure her post is legit, Ms. Matson reveals that she’s been approached by nearly 100 people, despite her highest bid falling well below the $100,000 price tag.
“I was offered $4,500,” she told Daily Mail Australia.

“I also got half a can of Coke and some gummy worms as a bargaining chip.”
The listing for the rare and unusual cookie has captured the attention of thousands of Facebook users, with more than 300 shares and 15,000 views, Ms Matson claimed.
In a strange twist of fate, Ms. Matson revealed that her co-worker is the sister of Gold Coast teen Rylee Stuart, the owner of the lucrative $20,000 “ultra rare” swollen Dorito.

“I’ve heard all about her story. I thought it was pretty amazing how something so meaningless can make such a big splash on the internet,” she said.
“If I hadn’t heard of her story, I probably would have just eaten it in the double form.”
While she hopes to make a generous profit from her rare find in a $3.20 box of Arnott’s Shapes, Ms. Matson was also happy to see people enjoying her mail.
“I’ve had hilarious reactions from the market audience,” she says.
“People seem happy to laugh with me and distract themselves during lockdown.”
