35 Foods That You Should Never Put In The Refrigerator

29. Bread


It is never recommended to keep bread refrigerated. It will severely dry your bread out and make it quickly become stale. It’s best to just keep bread out and stored at room temperature. Pre-sliced bread should stay fresh for up to a week.

Just make double sure that the package is tightly sealed shut after use. If you find yourself with too much bread then you can always freeze what you don’t need and reheat it later. That way you’ll always have bread on hand and not have to worry about it going bad.

30. Cucumber


Another vegetable that might surprise you is the cucumber. Cucumbers are best and tastiest when stored at room temperature. The University of California even did a study on it. They found that storing the vegetable in temperatures lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit caused damage to the cucumber.

So, just keep cucumbers in your pantry (away from apples and bananas) and they will have a longer life expectancy and maintain their delicious taste longer. Read on! The next food item you should never keep in the fridge is going to shock you.

31. Cereal



This food might surprise some of you. Some people keep their cereal in the refrigerator and doing so can actually damage the texture of the cereal. Due to humidity, cereals can quickly lose their crunch by keeping them in the icebox.

Not to mention that cereal boxes will take up loads of refrigerator space. Still, there are a number of reasons why some people choose to keep their cereals in the fridge, including bug issues. So, that, we can understand. Do whatever it takes to keep those pesky ants out!
