I'll be the first to admit that I feel a little nervous about not refrigerating certain things. Someone close to my family never put mayonnaise in the fridge, and it literally made me want to throw up. Food Network has a list of ingredients that shouldn't be refrigerated, ever, and for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the quality of the food goes downhill after hitting the cold, and sometimes it's just unnecessary. Check them out below.

  • Melon - cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon
  • Potatoes
  • Honey
  • Coffee
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Hot sauce
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
  • Bread
  • Nuts
  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Stone Fruits - peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums
  • Berries
  • And my own personal addition - cupcakes or any kind of cake
