McDonald’s might no longer exist in Iceland, but at least one Icelander is apparently still a fan.

The Directorate of Customs often deals with unusual items that people attempt to mail to Iceland, but a new first was recently achieved. According to a statement on their official site, they recently intercept a parcel from Hungary that contained contraband they had never encountered before: a McDonald’s hamburger.

The hamburger in question reportedly came with “all the trimmings”, and appeared as though it had been bought in Hungary before being sent directly to Iceland.

Iceland actually has tight controls on the importing of meat, but as the burger was fully cooked, Customs ultimately decided to let it through. What became of the burger since then, which took seven to ten days to reach its destination, is unknown.

The last McDonald’s in Iceland officially closed in 2009. In fact, the last hamburger sold in Iceland is on display at the National Museum, where it appears relatively unchanged over the years.
