old mcdonalds

That's no typo. According to one experimental blogger, a McDonald's Happy Meal sat on her office shelf for a year without ever decomposing.
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...I think ants, mice and flies are smarter than people, because they weren’t fooled. They never touched the Happy Meal. Children shouldn’t either.

The skeptic in me has a hard time believing this is actually true (like the Kentucky Fried Rat or the Neiman Marcus $250 cookie recipe) but since I'm not really interested in recreating the experiment I'll take her word for it. Sadly I'd probably eat the fries before they even had time to get cold. (So for anyone who thought we only did gourmet at the Habes house, not even close :) at least not for the grownups.)


  1. Love the blog...I had so much trouble with Phil, and Thomas is almost 3 and eaten everything we have given him! Go figure. I don't want to dampen the situation but just wait till lunchboxes, it'll be time for blog part2. My motto, feed him what he likes and just keep offering the rest, with NO pressure. Philippe still won't touch cheese, of ANY kind ! Good luck and don't go insane Ger xoxo

  2. Too funny, thanks for chiming in. Didn't Thomas eat olives while I was there? Amazing.
