I forgot my falafel and shawarma wrap

by Corty Moto   Last Updated May 14, 2019 18:17 PM

At around 2pm yesterday, I bought wraps from a street stand I'm familiar with. I brought it home... and forgot it existed. It's 10am next day, but it's untouched and as well sealed as a takeout plastic bag can be.

Normally I wouldn't chance it, but I remember a friend saying the microwave can... sterilize the food? I forgot what word he used. Should I try blasting it in there or just throw them out? I'm poor but not starving, so it's more about "I paid for that, so I want to eat it if it's salvageable"

This is always going to be one of those, 'you'll never know until you try it' decisions.

If the temperature where you live struggles to get into double figures, I wouldn't even think twice.
If it's 32°C in the shade, you might want to remember not to leave it out next time.

I live in the UK, used to spend a lot of my time on the road. A sandwich was always fine the next day; maybe not 'delicious', but 'fine'.
