People are just realising where you should store Heinz Ketchup – but they’re divided

PEOPLE only realize where you have to store Heinz Tomato Sauce – but not everyone agrees with the official ruling.

The question of whether to keep the famous sauce in the refrigerator or freezer has caused consumers eternal headaches.

Should it be refrigerated or kept at room temperature has long been on the minds of shoppers.

But Heinz ended up putting this dilemma to bed, tweeting that red things should in fact be put – in the fridge.

Posting on Twitter, the company recently said: “FYI: Ketchup. go. in. the. fridge!!!”

The post has received more than 18,000 likes, and some shoppers agree that the sauce should be kept cold.

One said: “My ketchup goes straight from the fridge, to my eggs, back to the fridge.”

A second said, “Yes, Heinz. Can you tell my boyfriend to do the same. He left it on the counter.”

But not everyone agrees, even though the label states that the sauce should be refrigerated after first opening.

One joked: “No, no. You produce, I take care of the consumption.”

Meanwhile, another added: “No one wants cold sauce with hot food.”

The third said, “But if I put it in the fridge, my fries will get cold. I don’t think you’ve given this a second thought.”

It comes after Heinz brought back an “iconic” 1990s childhood item.

The food company put Pizza Heinz Beans back on store shelves in Iceland in November after they disappeared from supermarkets.

In January, however, it sparked fury by doubling the prices of some of its products within a year.

Peppa Pig photography jars increased 100% from £1 to £2, while three packs of Heinz 200g cans of Beanz increased from £1 to £1.79.

And a bottle of its 910g ketchup spiked 60% from £2.49 to £3.99.

In total, Heinz was found to have pushed the price of 500 items across all major supermarkets.

How to save money on your supermarket store

Food inflation fell to 16.5% in June, but remained at one of its highest levels in 15 years.

That means everyday items like cooking sauces and eggs are priced higher than they were at the same time last year.

But there are ways to save money on your grocer if you’re feeling the impact in your pocket.

You should join as many loyalty programs as possible.

Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons are just a few that have them and give you exclusive discounts on thousands of products.

You’ll also be able to accumulate loyalty points to use on future purchases.

Meanwhile, you can save money on your fruits and veggies by picking up a delicious veggie box.

These boxes are available in several supermarkets, including Lidl, and charge you a hefty discount.

Asda also sells discount boxes of vegetables for £3.50 while Sainsbury’s has a similar scheme where you can pack £2 boxes with enough fresh vegetables to feed a family of four for five days.
