The Burning Question*: Bread - should it be kept in or out of the fridge?

It’s Monday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Inspired by last Monday’s dilemma about whether chocolate should be refrigerated, some of‘s staff members came to near-blows about the correct storage of bread.

Some pointed out that bread lasts much longer when it is refrigerated but the mere idea filled others with horror as the loaf could lose its fresh texture and taste.

Where is your bread?

In with the cold stuff…


Out breathing the fresh air…
