From ketchup and eggs to chocolate and butter, there's a whole lot of contention when it comes to which ingredients are meant to be stored in the cupboard.

And, it seems the latest debate online surrounds the humble potato after one woman was left totally stunned after discovering how to store them properly.

The woman took to TikTok to share with viewers her major revelation and it's since sparked quite the discussion online. Have a look:

Beth began the video by panning to a sack of potatoes while zooming into the 'at home store below 5 °C' recommendation.

The overlay text of the TikTok read: "Surely no? Does anyone else keep their potatoes in the fridge?? Is this NEW? Is my whole life a lie..."

"Maybe I have been living under a rock but I always thought they belonged in a dark cupboard?" she captioned the short clip.

The video has since clocked up more than 421k views on the platform alongside hundreds upon hundreds of comments from people eager to share their reactions to the woman's revelation.

It seems many people were just as stunned as Beth, with one TikTok user writing: "I've never met anyone that kept their potatoes in the fridge..."

"Why have I always put big potatoes in a dark cupboard and new potatoes in the fridge. I’m questioning my own logic," admitted a second, while a third quipped: "Mine have been in the cupboard."

A fourth advised: "Ask yourself where all stores keep eggs and potatoes."

"Cupboard but always forget about them so sometimes fridge," revealed another.

For others, however, this was far from news.

"I keep mine in the fridge because when they were in the cupboard I forgot about them until I could start to smell them," revealed one TikTok user.

A second penned: "I've been keeping mine in the fridge for as long as I can remember. Never have sprouts or spoilage."

"Fridge here," a third chimed in, "they last weeks and weeks."

A fourth piped up: "Who doesn’t put them in the fridge?!, while a fifth echoed: "I always keep mine in the fridge they last so much longer and no bits grow on them."

And, a final TikTok user added: "Yep! They last so much longer and are less likely to sprout!!"
