A grandmother who kept McDonald’s fries and hamburger for 24 years showed how the meal still looks fresh after keeping it in her closet for more than two decades.
In the video shared by her granddaughter Aly, the grandma showed off the McDonald’s fries and hamburger she kept in a shoebox for 24 years. She also mentioned the lack of mold, pointed to the 1996 Nascar packaging, and the fact that the burger is ‘completely intact.’
The grandmother did not share the reason why she had decided to keep the meal for years but she said that ‘it lives in a box in my closet.
Aly’s TikTok video, which gained four million views, shows the grandma pointing out the 1996 NASCAR race advertisement.
“The French fries look like they maybe could’ve fallen under your seat a month or so ago that never rotted or decayed,” she said while holding the fries.
She then opened up the hamburger and said: “The hamburger itself — the bread has never molded, the meat has never rotted, and it has never even broken. It’s completely intact.”
Another customer named David Whipple showed off his 20-year-old burger, which he said looks the same as the time of purchase.
In an interview with KUTV, Whipple from Utah said he bought the burger on July 7, 1999, but forgot it in his coat pocket.
He found the sandwich two years later and was shocked to see that it looks the same so he decided to continue with the experiment.
In an interview with The Doctors TV show, Whipple said: “It wasn’t on purpose. I was showing some people how enzymes work and I thought a hamburger would be a good idea. And I used it for a month and then I forgot about it.
“It ended up in a paper sack in the original sack with the receipt in my coat pocket tossed in the back of my truck and it sat there for, I don’t know, two or three months.”
Whipple continued: “My wife didn’t discover it until at least a year or two after that. And we pulled it out and said ‘oh my gosh. I can’t believe it looks the same way.’
“It’s great for my grand-kids to see. To see what happens with fast food.”
