Occasionally I run out to the store to pick a few things up on my way home from work. (milk, diapers, a needed ingredient for a recipe, etc.) Most times I will grab myself a little snack or treat. Recently, I picked up a couple of Milky Way Midnights, one for me and one for the wife. I usually eat my snack that night as I did with the candy bar.
Two nights later, I opened the fridge and saw the one I bought for Lauren sitting there with all it’s dark chocolate, creamy nougat and golden caramel, goodness staring up at me.
So I ate it.
Lauren was a little annoyed. I couldn’t understand why. I thought she did not want it. I did buy it two days ago. She claims there is no statute of limitations on candy sitting in the fridge. I claim there is. I believe an accurate time for something like that to be sitting un-eaten is 24 hours.
Did I buy it for her? Yes.
But did she eat it that night? No.
I believe at that point it is fair game.
What is the statute of limitation on uneaten candy?
