It's no secret that fast food is typically full of preservatives and not the healthiest option in the world, but now one woman has proven how indestructible it can be by keeping McDonald's in a box for 24 years.

Now, I don't know about you, but if I'd kept fast food in a box for nearly a quarter of a century, I'd probably be expecting to open up my home science experiment and see a lot of dust.

But shockingly, this McDonald's meal from 1996 is not only recognizable, it actually looks edible.

The fast-food experiment was unveiled on TikTok by user @aly.sherb, and it features her grandmother opening a McDonald's meal that she'd kept in a shoebox since 1996 in her closet.

While the bag did show some signs of age, the original NASCAR advert could be seen on it.

The chips, admittedly, don't look inviting, and the TikTok users says that they "look like they maybe could've fallen under your seat a month or so ago that never rotted or decayed."

But as for the hamburger, well, shamefully, I've eaten burgers that look like this on more than one occasion.

Sure, most of us wouldn't want a burger that looks like it's had such a hard life, but as @aly.sherb says in the TikTok, despite the fact that it's 24 years old, "the bread has never molded, the meat has never rotted, and it has never even broken. It's completely intact."

At the end of the TikTok, the grandma can be heard saying: "Not sure what would happen if you ate it though."

Yeah, admittedly, that's something we doubt anyone will want to find out...

Now, I can't help but wonder if this TikToker is going to keep this Happy Meal for another 20 years just to see what it looks like then.
