On April 16, Rob and Gracie Jones were working at their 1959 home in Crystal Lake, located about 50 miles northwest of Chicago.

Suddenly, they find a decades-old McDonald’s bag behind a wall.

“Rob was in the bathroom replacing old toilet paper,” Gracie told CNN Wednesday.

The couple had no idea they were about to find out Decades ago fast food.

“At this point, we’re looking at each other and wondering if we’ll call the police because we’ve just discovered evidence from a crime scene!” “We were so relieved that we just found the old McDonald’s bag,” Gracie said.

Then they took the bag to their kitchen to open it carefully. Inside they found two hamburger wraps and some french fries that had not been eaten in decades – which were crunchy and brown.

French fries in the bag, which the spouses may sell to the appropriate buyer.

“We saw the French fries and we said, ‘This is not realistic.’” How healthy are the french fries in this bag and how well are they kept?! It was wild.”

McDonald’s fries They are usually known for their salty smell, but the couple said there is no smell to these effects.

Gracie said they picked up a few french fries and were surprised at how strong they were, despite their lackluster appearance.

When looking for the logo on the bag they discovered, the couple learned that it was used in it McDonald’s production from 1955 to 1961.
The history of the packaging dates back to the mid-1950s and early 1960s.

They also discovered that one of the original McDonald’s restaurants in the area was built down the street from their home in 1959 – the same year their home was built.

The bag even contained the original fast-food chain’s mascot, Speedy.

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

For now, the couple keeps the old meal in stock and isn’t sure what to do with it.

“We’d be happy to sell it or if we didn’t, maybe we’d keep it as a wonderful piece of history,” Gracie said.
