If the fact that it’s a nutritionally-bankrupt, fat-laden, sodium-loaded, chemically-enhanced (and not in a good way!) heart attack in a box isn’t enough to deter you, here’s something else that might give you cause to pause before wheeling into the Golden Arches Drive-Thru for that yummy Happy Meal.
Last spring, a New York photographer decided to conduct a Science Experiment of sorts on a Mcdonalds Happy Meal, and the results, or should I say the lack thereof, were appetite-challenging to say the least:
Not much has changed since April 10, 2010 on Day one. The top bun is very dry and a small part snapped off. The burger shrank as it dried out, but nothing much else. […]
The Happy Meal stopped smelling of anything after only a couple days, and the only change that really seemed to occur was that it essentially plasticized. “At six months old, the food is plastic to the touch and has an acrylic sheen to it. The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock,” Davies told the Mail.
