What’s the most surprising thing you have ever discovered while renovating your home – old photographs, school mementos or your childhood clothes? A Reddit user, however, made a bizarre and startling discovery that was beyond anything that he could ever imagine. Rob (u/slamminsammy2109) was in for a surprise when he discovered an old McDonald’s meal hidden in the walls of his bathroom! Believe it or not, he actually found the wrappers and fries intact in the walls of his home. He took to the sub-Reddit r/mildlyinfuriating to share a picture of the meal that appears to be dating back to at least 60 years or more. Take a look at the now-deleted post here.
The picture that Rob shared on Reddit was widely circulated across social media and covered by multiple media outlets. In the click, we can see three wrappers of McDonald’s which appear to be empty and may have contained burgers earlier. Rob also found a packet of fries on the wall in his Illinois home, which according to him, were ‘still crispy’. “Found this in my bathroom wall while renovating. Our house was built in 1959 and pretty sure these have been there since. Still perfectly crispy,” he wrote in his post.
“Our house is very close to a McDonald’s location that opened around then so I assume it found its way into our wall from the original builders,” he told Newsweek.
The unique packaging of McDonald’s gave people a sneak peek into the history of the burger giant. Several also found it funny that the McDonald’s food was hidden in the wall. Rob’s unusual find grabbed a lot of comments and reactions on Reddit. “Wow, that’s a blast from my past,” wrote one user while another said, “You, sir, are officially an archaeologist.”
