With all the recent talk about health care reform and Barack and Michelle Obama's initiative to curb childhood obesity, you may be disgusted to know that the above photo is of a one-year-old McDonald's Happy Meal. One years old!
Nonna Joann Bruso, who left the meal on a shelf (not in a freezer or refrigerator) for a year, wrote:
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.
