UTAH (WEWS) -- A Utah man went to put on a coat he hadn’t worn in years when he found a surprise in his pocket.

David Whipple reached in and found a McDonald’s hamburger he bought back in 1999.

Whipple told the TV show “The Doctors” that he bought it 14 years ago for an experiment on enzymes and how they work.

When no mold grew, Whipple said he tossed the burger back into his jacket pocket.

Now more than a decade later, Whipple said the hamburger still looks the same as it did when he first bought it.

Whipple said he considers the burger part of his family and now, even taking it on a trip to Disneyland to meet Mickey and Pluto.
