Hilarious reaction of grandmother, 83, trying fast food for the 1st time still melts hearts
Some people say they could not survive a year without at least one fast food meal, but this 83-year-old Irish grandma has lived her entire life without trying the delicious treat. Until her granddaughter decided it was time for the lady to get on the fast food train with a video that melted hearts.
Eva McCarthy, a 22-year-old student from Cork, loves to hang out with her adorable granny, who like any other grandparent, is a traditional woman. Margaret McCarthy has followed a strict diet her entire life, so she wasn’t familiar with pizza, nuggets, French fries of a milkshake until Eva changed that.
Eva came up with the idea of giving her grandma a feast with fast food and film her reaction to it, and the result had people all over the internet in stitches.
"My granny was brought up on a strict diet of potatoes, meat, and vegetables. She's also a firm believer of deserts but would stick to more basic treats, like apple tart or jelly and ice-cream."
The student came up with a whole fast food meal consisting of McDonald’s fries, nuggets and burger, a vanilla milkshake, pizza, and chocolate chip cookies. Mrs. Margaret doesn’t look convinced when Eva explains what a sour and sweet sauce is, hilariously saying “I wouldn’t touch that,” before Eva dipped one nugget in it.
MARGARET IS NOT IMPRESSED
After taking the first bite, Margaret says the sauce is too sweet but calls the nuggets “lovely.” However, she says she’d never try it again, while she keeps nibbling on the piece that’s left. Eva can’t stop giggling and her grandma’s reaction, and offers her a milkshake to down the Nuggets.
When asked if she knows what is in the milkshake, the sassy grandma replies “Milk, I presume?” to which Eva adds that there’s also blended vanilla ice cream. “I’ll be poisoned,” Margaret claims, before taking a sip of the sweet goodness.
It was clear she didn’t like the milkshake one bit, frowning and making a disgusted face after tasting it, to her granddaughter’s disbelief. The fries are next, and while she’s a bit more open to it, it wasn’t anything that special.
"There is no reason for her not to try these foods in her lifetime, so I decided to introduce her to all my go-to favorite fast foods."
A SLICE OF HEAVEN
Then, Eva introduces the burger, a happy mean one which only has meat and some sauce. Margaret says she had tried one burger years ago, but after tasting the McDonald’s one, it doesn’t seem like she’ll be adding the item to her list of favorite foods.
Margaret is then presented with a slice of pizza. She says she knows what it looks like but admits she had never tried it once in her life. The grandma attempts to take a chunk from the pizza, but Eva explains she has to hold the whole thing and bite.
To her granddaughter’s delight, Margaret’s face lights up with the cheesy meal, and she says it is “good.”
And for dessert, Eva got a bag of M&S chocolate chip cookies that become Margaret’s favorite immediately.
When asked to choose her favorite, Margaret declares the cookies as the winner, followed up close by the pizza. As for her least favorite, she chose the milkshake and the burger.
EVA EXPLAINS THE REASONS BEHIND THE VIDEO
“My granny was brought up on a strict diet of potatoes, meat, and vegetables. She's also a firm believer of deserts but would stick to more basic treats, like apple tart or jelly and ice-cream. I often go for dinner in my Granny's, and she would question the foods I eat at home such as pasta, rice, pizza, so I asked her if she would ever try them which she replied no."
"That got me thinking that there is no reason for her not to try these foods in her lifetime, so I decided to introduce her to all my go-to favorite fast foods.”
Mrs. Margaret often has cereal or toast for breakfast, meat and vegetables for dinner, and some tea and meat sandwich in the evening. So, that’s how Eva came with the idea of giving her granny the opportunity to taste some of the most delicious food of the modern times.
“This is a light-hearted video we did for fun, and we both really enjoyed making together,” Eva concluded.
