A recent study commissioned by Smartfood found that nearly one third of Canadian women aged 18-34 hide their snacks. I had no idea that my cohorts were so sneaky! While I’ve been known to gobble down a snack in the car, I haven’t actually gone to the point of hiding snacks around the house… although it might not be a bad idea for those who I share a house with *blush*.
With 37% stashing treats on the top shelf of the cupboard, 35% in the pantry and 19% preferring their desk drawer, I really think we as a society could up our #SmartStash game… those would be the first places I’d look!
Where I’m a snack hunter and not a snack gatherer, I decided to crowd source my social media followers to find out if they have a secret stash and where it is… mwhahaha! They might regret sharing with me if I ever come to visit.
Emily on Facebook said: “I keep chocolate in my purse at all times. I buy a big chocolate bar every time I get groceries and hide it in there. I sneak pieces all week.”
It turns out veggies make fantastic camouflage! Brandee on Facebook confides “If I bake cookies, I hide them in the fridge surrounded by leafy lettuce.” Julie also hides treats at the bottom of the veggie bin so her roommate will be none the wiser. Jolene’s son and hubby have yet to get past the veggie barrier as well.
Some of my readers take snack stashing to the next level though, and made me proud. Heather from Facebook has hidden snacks in a toolbox, you’ll never guess where Brian’s hiding spot is, and Jenny from Twitter wins the internet with her admission of hiding treats in an empty tampon box!
You guys truly slay me.
