Our Meat Ball Survival Guide
There was some dead obvious give aways that the meat balls weren't good. But like any kiwi bloke, he shrugged off any doubt and continued to stuff his face. Here's a quick 3 step guide to avoid the biggest mistakes he made.
Step 1: If it taste off then it probably is.
The first give dead away was the taste of the meat balls. The man had complained that it tasted very bitter but like a typical bloke, he decided to throw half a bottle of hot sauce on top to mask the taste.
Step 2: If it taste bad then don't cover it with hot sauce
There is no doubt that if he didn't consume the quantity of meat balls he did and had just thrown it out, he wouldn't been in the situation he did. If it taste sour, bitter or anything along those lines then you should definitely not eat it. Don't make the same mistake of drenching it in sauce.
