Ammon News - A man was in for a surprise while rennovating his bathroom, after discovering a 60-year-old McDonald's meal tucked inside the wall, complete with half-eaten fries.

A man was left stunned after finding a half eaten McDonald's meal inside the wall when renovating his bathroom.

Rob, from Illinois, found the meal "wrapped up in an old rag", with the vintage packaging containing a packet of half-finished French fries.

He's pretty certain the meal, which he found in the plaster, has been there since his home was built back in 1959 - and he says the fries were still "perfectly crispy".

He went on to admit he was relieved to see that the paper bag only contained fries, having initially been worried that he'd stumbled across something more sinister.

Sharing pictures of the long-discarded dinner via the Reddit forum r/mildlyinfurating, revealed he and his family live close to one of the original McDonald's locations in Crystal Lake.

This particular location first opened its doors way back in 1959, the very same year Rob's house was built.

Fellow Reddit users were impressed by Rob's find, which many suggest could well be the oldest McDonald's meal to be recovered from a wall. Others have "dared" him to try one of the "forbidden fries" for himself.

One person wrote: "As a former construction worker you’d be surprised how many chip bags, Gatorade bottles, coke bottles, fast food cups are inside a lot of the newer houses".

Another said: "Awesome. About 22 years ago we filled every wall cavity we could with beer cans when redoing our bathroom and kitchen. Going to be tearing this place up soon can't wait to find them".

Speaking with Newsweek, Rob said: "While removing a fixture in the bathroom I noticed a piece of cloth stuck behind plaster and pulled it out to show my wife. It was balled up and we could tell there was something else inside.

"When we unwrapped it and found the old McDonald's bag and fries we were very surprised and grateful that is all we found hidden."

Interestingly, Rob says there "was no smell and surprisingly no trace of mice", indicating that the hungry 1950's builders had done a pretty good job of insulating the wall.
