Cardi B Doesn’t Put Her Ketchup In The Fridge And Fans…Have Thoughts

Every household has their quirks. Some families like to freeze all of their bread products, others only buy organic foods. I once had a roommate who didn’t refrigerate his butter and it blew my mind, but he was similarly shocked to find out that I don’t refrigerate any of my fruit. Cardi B has now caused a similar refrigeration controversy, except this time, it’s with ketchup, which may have arguably less room for cooling debate than a few apples.

“People who put their ketchup in the fridge are not to be trusted,” she wrote on Twitter, and fans were apoplectic. Many questioned if ketchup left out would quickly turn (spoiler: it won’t), others noted that cold ketchup just tastes better, while many just agreed that condiments should be refrigerated as a rule. She fought back valiantly against fans, asking them to “imagine cold ass ketchup on your fucking eggs,” but fans were even more united in their backlash: ketchup shouldn’t go on eggs, period.

One fan asked where ketchup ought to go if not inside the fridge, to which Cardi replied on top of it, where it’s “nice and room temperature to put on your eggs in the morning.”


Cardi’s condiment opinions did not stop at room-temperature ketchup; cold maple syrup and cold hot sauce are also taboo.

She also prefers butter over mayonnaise, which is correct.

For the record, Heinz Ketchup says thatBecause of its natural acidity, Heinz® Ketchup is shelf-stable. However, its stability after opening can be affected by storage conditions. We recommend that this product, like any processed food, be refrigerated after opening. Refrigeration will maintain the best product quality after opening.
