Should I eat it? [More:]
An untouched piece of plain cheesecake, bought last Thursday from a restaurant, kept in a styrofoam take-out container and refrigerated. Smells and looks normal, but it's been nearly a week. What do you think?
Ew, no!! Cheesecake for breakfast? Save it for lunch!

I didn't mean FOR BREAKFAST. Sheesh. I have apple pie for that.

If it's from a restaurant it probably already waited for a week before being served, yes?

I am all in favor of desserts for breakfast!

Maybe you should have it for breakfast. Most important cheesecake of the day. If you skip it you'll probably get cranky later.

I'll eat it.

I'd eat it. I think your worst problem would be that it will have absorbed refrigerator smell into it.

What, no cold pizza?

Absolutely. The sugar will preserve it. Not to mention the fridge. Save me a bite!

Definitely! Cheese (even cream cheese) is one of those foods that's already bad. You'll be fine!

Also, yes, in my restaurant career I served many a cheesecake that was months old, then defrosted, then served out gradually for 2 weeks or so. Quite common. It doesn't get hard around the edges because you tuck Saran wrap tightly around it.

What?! I can't believe you let cheesecake sit around for a week. What an abomination.
Also, can I have a bite?

It was around for a week because we also had cookies and pie. :/

Yes. EAT IT.

Might be a bit dried out and not as tasty.

I'd hit eat it.

So, how much life insurance does he have? and are you a rich widow yet? jk, I'd have eaten it.

Life is short. Eat dessert first.
