My Secret Stash

It's no secret that I love chocolate. Dark Chocolate in particular, but almost any will do. The problem with it is that my kids also love chocolate, so keeping it around is tougher than one might think.

My kids aren't big candy eaters in that it takes them forever to eat holiday or parade candy. I usually end up sending it to work with Mike and he shares it with everyone. I think it's because I have never kept candy away from the kids. It isn't a taboo thing for them, so the temptation or thought that they are going against the rules is removed. Nonetheless, candy that I buy for myself somehow disappears quicker than anything else.

I don't think there is a mom out there that hasn't hidden candy or some other treat from their kids or husband at one time or another. I do it all the time. I often have a couple of stashes around the house for emergencies. You know, stressful days, when I haven't baked, Thursdays. ;o) I think it's a natural thing to need that little sugar rush or satisfaction once in a while.

For some people, a secret stash might be ice cream or doughnuts. For others, it might be something like peanuts or Doritos (OOH! What a great idea! Note to self: start a Doritos stash.) I'm sure the variety is endless.

So I have posted a poll in my sidebar for you to tell me: Do you have a secret stash of candy or treats in your home? Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what kinds of treats you love to stash or where you stash them; home, work or your car.

I keep Dark Chocolate Hershey kisses in the cupboard with my tea bags. No one ever gets in them unless Ea is here!

I don't have one right now but I have in the past. My husband is always saying "What do you have hidden that I can eat"

My former wife used to hide Snickers bars all over the house....never did understand that since I don't recall anyone else eating them.
