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.
