Nuts
The unsaturated fat in nuts can spoil more quickly, ruining the nuts' flavor, if you leave it in the pantry. Moving nuts into the fridge will also keep those insects away. Nuts will last for a few months in the pantry but some say they will last for up to a year if refrigerated!

Dried Fruit
Dried fruit can be stored at room temperature but it will actually stay softer and longer in the refrigerator.
