Do all foods qualify for the 5 second rule? NO!!!

We’ve all heard of the 5=second rule: If you drop a piece of food on the floor and pick it up within 5 seconds, it’s safe to eat. But do all foods qualify for the 5-second rule?

BuzzFeed wanted to know, so they asked readers: “Would you eat these foods if they fell on the floor?” It seems if the food is wet, sticky, or runny in any way it’s a no eat – but everything else is a go. Check it out ...

Jell-O: 86% of people said no way!

A half-eaten apple: 55% said eat it off the floor and 45% said no way.

Spaghetti Bolognese: 95% of people said no way!

A cookie: 92% of people think the 5-second rule totally applies to cookies!

Cheese: It probably depends on whether it’s a soft or hard cheese, which is why 55% said no to eating cheese off the floor and 45% said sure why not!

Fries: As long as there is no ketchup on them, right? 86% of people say you can eat fries if they fall on the floor.
