Colorado Mom keeps a McDonald’s Happy Meal for 1 whole year… It STILL hasn’t gone off!
Mrs Bruso left the Happy Meal uncovered on a shelf at her home near Denver, Colorado, to see what would happen. She has revealed the results on her blog, in which she gives healthy eating advice to parents.
The 62-year-old, who has eight grandchildren, admitted that the arid temperature of her home near the Rocky Mountains meant there was little moisture in the air with which to speed decomposition.
But she added that during the year-long experiment, no flies or other insects were attracted to the food.
She said: “I had the windows open many times, but flies and other insects just ignored the Happy Meal. What does that tell you, if they can’t be bothered with it?“
