Couple found 1950s McDonald’s bag with french fries inside wall during home renovations

Cold french fries are bad enough. But cold, old french fries are even worse. That’s the surprise from Ronald McDonald that one Illinois couple stumbled upon during home renovations, as Sara Smart reports for CNN.

On April 16, Rob and Gracie Jones were doing work on their 1959 Crystal Lake home, located about 50 miles northwest of Chicago. Suddenly, they found a decades-old McDonald’s bag behind one wall. The couple had no idea they were about to discover decades-old fast food.

“We saw the fries and were like, ‘This is unreal.’ How on earth are these fries still in this bag and how are they preserved so well?! It was wild,” Gracie said.

Researching the logo on the bag they discovered, the couple learned it was used in McDonald’s production from 1955 to 1961.

CNN has contacted McDonald’s about the unusual find, and is awaiting comment.
