Visual History of McDonald’s Clam Shell Packaging

In 1990, McDonald’s gave into demands from the EPA and ceased using their clam shell polystyrene containers to package their food.  I for one have always missed those containers for a variety of reasons, and started feeling nostalgic for them.  Here’s a short and unofficial visual guide to a few of those containers, and a couple of others, for no other reason that I think they are cool to look at, and seeing them brings back a lot of old memories.
