It is quite surprising how a food that has stayed for 10 years still looks edible and spotting no single mould.
Well, this McDonald’s hamburger and fries preserved just in a glass cabinet in Iceland doesn’t look like it has aged even one day.
Hjortur Smarason had bought the meal in 2009 after he was devastated with the news that the chain was closing up in his area.
Having heard that McDonald meals never age, he decided to test it out in his home in Iceland.
This week marks 10 years since the food was purchased – and it still looks pretty tasty.
A live stream of the burger and fries shows there are no signs of mould or decay on the food.
“I had heard that McDonald’s never decompose so I just wanted to see if it was true or not,” Mr Smarason told AFP.
The meal is now kept in a glass cabinet in Snotra House, a hostel in southern Iceland.
Before that, Mr Smarason kept the fast-food in a plastic bag in his garage, and after three years he donated the meal to the National Museum of Iceland where he noticed barely any change in its appearance.
Then the Museum decided that they weren’t equipped to preserve the food which is when they returned it to its original owner.
People now visit from around the world to see the old burger and fries.
