For me, there is nothing tastier than a cold cherry tomato from the fridge, never had a problem with loosing taste in fact they have more in my opinion. Of course, they don't go in until they are already ripe, but after that they keep a good three four days at least which is just enough time to use em up.
Now, regular tomatoes just don't last more than a day or two tops around here, so the only time they would see the fridge is when they are mixed into a salad that needs chilled. But the cherry tomatoes are harvested several large bowls at a time, so even with DW eating em like grapes to the tune of half a bowl a day they last several days.
She likes em chilled, I like em chilled, so chilled they get. I say to each his own and am running full tilt away from this debate!!!!!!!!
