Police department targeting people who keep chocolate in the fridge

Nothing can divide people quite like food habits. Hell, last month my bachelor party descended into a full-blown debate about whether or not you should put a dollop of ketchup on your plate or squirt it over your meal. (That's right, no strippers, just an in-depth chat about condiments. Crazy.)

A common topic many people can disagree on is what foods do and do not belong in the fridge. From eggs to ketchup to bread, it seems some people love putting foods that quite obviously do not belong in the fridge in the fridge (don't @ me).

However, the New South Wales police department in Australia has now caused a stir online after revealing that they'll now be "targeting" people who keep chocolate in the fridge.

Writing on their official Facebook page, the NSW police force said: "People who put chocolate in the fridge are the same people that don't keep left unless overtaking. We're now targeting both."

The tongue-in-cheek (we hope) post was posted on the social media site just yesterday, but has already racked up more than 35,000 reactions, 24,000 comments, and 2,800 shares. And oh boy, did it all kick off in the comments section...

Many Australians commented about how they need to put chocolate in the fridge because it's so hot in the country.

Sean Falconer wrote: "We live in Australia, we need to put chocolate in the fridge AND we need to keep left. Keep up the good humour on this page."

And Shannon Vanessa Zachary typed: "People who don’t put chocolate in the fridge are the same people who don’t use indicators or know how to use a roundabout."

Even Australia Labor party politician Sonia Hornery got involved on the debate, saying: "Chocolate never lasts long enough in my household to be put in the fridge..."

And the NSW Police Force were quick to hit back at people commenting on the country's warm climate, saying: "Everyone saying "BuT wHo EaTs MeLtEd ChOcOlATe" Calm down, you live in NSW, not the Simpson Desert."

Top banter - and I completely agree with them.

Facebook user Matt Coleman believed the police force had taken their eyes off the "real criminals" out there, saying: "I think NSW Police Force needs to concentrate on the real criminals. You know, those foolish enough to believe pineapple has no place on a pizza! The humanity!"

But in the end, the NSW Police Force were quick to direct the debate back to its proper intention; the correct use of lanes while overtaking.

They wrote: "Great debate everyone. If there's one thing we can all agree on it's keeping left unless overtaking. Stay safe and have a great weekend!"

So, does chocolate belong in the fridge? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section (obviously, it does not and if you disagree you're wrong).
