1-Year-Old Happy Meal Doesn't Age

This will make you think twice about swinging by the McDonald's drive-thru on your way home ....

While researching her nutritional book for kids, "Baby Bites," Joann Bruso put a McDonald's Happy Meal on the shelf to see what would happen to it over a year's time. The result? Virtually nothing! No decay, no mold, nothing! 

In Joann's own words ... "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.

"This morning, I took it off my shelf to take a birthday photo. The first year is always a milestone. I gave it one of my world-famous nonna hugs, as we've been office mates for a year now! (Okay, maybe my sanity is in question.)"

This is the photo -- after a year.

@Louis Exactly right, the full/original version of the story does mentions that the meal was dehydrated on a shelf.

Oh, and the author of the original happens to make a living selling books and doing talks on children’s nutrition, so it’s pretty obvious that she was trying to make a point.

If you don’t believe that McDonald’s food decomposes, just stop and stick your head in their dumpster the next time you drive by one. :’)

What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

Can I make a suggestion? I think youve got something good here. But what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or maybe you could give us something to look at, something that would connect what youre saying to something tangible? Just a suggestion.
