An Aldi shopper likely had no idea their Facebook post about new lights in their pantry would cause such a heated debate.

The woman took to the Aldi Mums group to share a photo of the new lights she had installed in her pantry from the supermarket, writing, "Thanks Aldi, lights in my pantry."

Seemingly in response to the many questions she was receiving about the lights, she also added, "They do not have a sensor. They do have a remote or can be used manually. They can also change colour."

Some loved the idea, with one user writing, "Game changer!" 

"Oh wow, perfect for midnight snacking," another joked.

"Oh I absolutely need this in my life," someone else added.

"Oooh what a great idea!" a fourth wrote.

Others shared that you can get similar lights from Bunnings, Big W and Kmart. 

However, many were more drawn to the fact there was tomato sauce in the pantry.

"Who keeps tomato sauce in the pantry?" one user questioned 

"Who doesn't?" another replied.

"We have always kept sauces in the pantry ever since I can remember... We are all still alive," someone else wrote.

"Fridge for me. If it says on the bottle to refrigerate after opening, why would you do differently?" one user pointed out.

"Always in the pantry. Cold sauce on hot food is not my thing. Besides the space in the fridge is premium real estate," another joked.

"You do realize that it has preservatives in it, definitely in pantry and I’m in Qld. Never had a problem in 50 years," one woman added.

Others also commented that the soy sauce should also be refrigerated. 

"This is awesome but we need to talk! Is the sauce open? If it is plz [refrigerate]! And is that soy sauce? Plz [refrigerate]! But everything else is awesome," one user wrote.

Some responded saying it was so full of salt that it wouldn't matter.

Many also defended the snap, with one user writing, "All these sauce comments! I keep my in the pantry, haven’t killed anyone yet, lol. Lights look great!"

"Ooohhh look at all the pantry police," joked another.
