Six years ago, Canadian farmer Dave Alexander decided to put McDonald’s products to the test.
Rumor has it that some of the fast food chain’s edible products simply do not rot. Similar to previous experiments, Alexander decided to test this for himself using its cheeseburger and fries beginning 7 June 2012.
Fast forward six years and Alexander has the aged meal up for sale on eBay at CAD$29.99 (US$22.84). Unfortunately, the listing has been taken down by eBay.
TIME reported that skepticism spurred Alexander to purchase the McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries before marking it, “ORIGINAL, plain McDonald’s Cheeseburger and Fries MADE & PURCHASED JUNE 7, 2012.”
The food experiment shows a shrivelled, dried up cheeseburger with its cheese turned into a light brown shade, while the fries look exactly the same. Alexander said that the meal could pass off as something he had bought that morning, since there are only slight differences in color and appearance.
As time passed, he decided to put an end to the experiment and sell off the meal. Alexander had not touched the burger for the past six years; only removing dust prior to putting it up for sale. He advertised the burger on Twitter, which definitely caught the attention of some users.
Alexander had also cooked a homemade cheeseburger and fries a year after buying the McDonald’s meal for comparison. The organic homemade meal did not age well though. Alexander described the homemade fries as “little bits of stone.”
He assured that the listing was not a joke and amusingly added that “nature has refused to take this burger.”
