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.
