"Cookie in a Pot" Experiment Aborted

I was given this lovely butter cookie in sun flower look stuck in a clay pot. A cute idea, but the cookie didn't look that delicious in it's plastic wrap.

So I decided to turn this into an experiment inspired by one of the DVD extras from Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me" movie. I was curious to see when the cookie was going to become moldy. I placed it on a shelf at my desk in the office, and waited, and waited, ... I moved buildings and teams within the company and the cookie-in-a-pot came along as a fixture at or near my desk.

When I was cleaning up after the last move, I found it in an unopened moving box. 12 years later with no mold I finally aborted the experiment.

As you can see in this shot of the rear, the cookie was produced in 2007.
