Keep Your McDonald’s Fries Warm with This Easy Hack

A woman folding a McDonald's fries container to seal in the heat.

How many times have you finally arrived home after sitting at the drive-thru only to find your precious McDonald’s fries are cold? Thankfully, there’s a hack for that, and it doesn’t even involve a microwave.

TikTok content creator, @differentmotherhood, posted a video showing how she folds the carton holding her fries to seal in the warmth, and people were definitely into it. As of this writing, the video has garnered 3.7 million views.

The hack works best when the container isn’t completely full, so feel free to gobble a few fries before you try it.

To do it, just squeeze the tops of the container together until it kind of looks like a closed duckbill. Then, just fold over the arched back until it resembles a clasp and pull it over the front edges.

The sides of the arch will stay in place, closing off the remaining fries and keeping the warmth inside.
