File this under WTF! Not sure about you, but I can honestly say I NEVER wondered what McDonalds food would look like once it aged. Better yet, I would hate to think about what it feels like in my stomach. I do not eat Mickey D’s and in fact aside from wanting to experience the McDonald’s shrimp sandwich while in Japan, I have not let these lips touch McDonalds but one time in at least 10 years. No golden arches for me.
With that said, for the life of me I am baffled at writer Nonna Joann Bruso decision to find out “on purpose” what would be the outcome of letting a Happy Meal age for one year. After letting a Happy Meal sit on a shelf (not in a freezer) for a year, Joann results were not what you would have expected.
In Joann’s own words:
“It smelled delicious for a few days. I’d get a whiff of those yummy French fries every time I walked into my office. After a week or so, you could hardly smell it. My husband worried that when the food began to decompose, there would be a terrible odor in our home. He also worried the food would attract ants and mice. He questioned my sanity.
NOPE, no worries at all. My Happy Meal is one year old today and it looks pretty good. It NEVER smelled bad. The food did NOT decompose. It did NOT get moldy, at all.”
After one year there was no mold???? Foods without preservatives usually last a couple of days. Not the Happy Meal toy, but the burger and fries lasted one year. After reading this, if you are not convinced that McDonald’s is disgusting, you probably deserve to continue eating it. Think about it!
