Hidden chocolate

I have hiding places for chocolate. With a female teenager in the house, one needs to; I can't be the only one who ate cooking chocolate in my teens when there was nothing else, and who still got blamed by my younger brothers (the blighters!) for snaffling mum's chocolate even after I'd gone to university. They snaffled my dad's brandy as well; he used to win snooker tournaments and the prizes were often alcoholic but he couldn't drink alcohol while he was on phenobarbitone (sp?) to prevent fits after a brain op. Blighters, as I said. Nice blighters wink

Anyway, where have I hidden that bar of Oreo chocolate? I've decided I don't actually like it and that Minibags can have it after all.

I hide chocolate purely to protect DH from himself.

I hide chocolate from my son then can`t remember where I have put it . If I don`t he would eat the lot ie 9 penguin bars , 2 mars bars and half an angel cake in 2 hours . I really think he has a problem because if there are none in the fridge he never asks for or buys chocolate . The ironing basket is a good place as no one ever goes in there except me !!

f77ms grin the ironing basket

I don't buy chocolate (not interested) so no need to hide it

I think I've mentioned before that my friend hid chocolate biscuits in the tumble dryer and forgot!grin

Filing cabinet under urgent. No one bothers it.

I hide it from myself grin or I would eat it all in one go. I have a very bad memory so I hope that I don't remember that I bought it.

I'm not bothered about chocolate either. There's usually a bar in the fridge at home and DH helps himself to one square per day. I don't like the taste of dark chocolate and it doesn't agree with me.

There is a girl at work who can smell chocolate - even an unopened box or bar in someone's desk drawer.

I cannot eat chocolate because of my migraines - TBH I no longer miss it.

I cannot eat cheese for the same reason - but it is everywhere. Jars of pesto have it in. And don't even think about a ready meal.

No problem with chocolate as I do not like it. My problem is cheese, I wish I could keep it other than in the fridge just so tempting and not helped by having a SIL who is partner in a cheese distribution company. Lovely cheese on tap so to speak.

Ooh that's cruel luckygirl, not to be able to eat chocolate or cheese. I hope life has other compensations for you!

DD brought 24 bars of 80% chocolate when she came in the summer. The 24 bars were only part of the haul she had in her cupboard which comes from her Chinese in-laws. Every time they see the boys (7 & 3) they give them a bar each which the boys know to give straight to Mummy. We have no idea why but it is probably that as it is expensive it must be good and as good quality chocolate has not been around that long in China it is a luxury. DD and SiL just wish they would give them the cash instead. The chocolate is by the way the only present they EVER get.
I am slowly getting through it my making Chocolate torte at every opportunity. Any other suggestions gratefully received !!

Not bothered about cheese, but chocolate is different! However I try to restrain/limit myself. I ask DH to hide it from me sometimes. He's not all that keen on it!

Lupatria Fri 11-Nov-16 16:31:18

i generally hide chocolate inside me ............. never lasts long enough to find another hiding place. not that i buy chocolate that often you understand.

Christinefrance Fri 11-Nov-16 17:54:11

Lupatria you took the words from my mouth, chocolate is my only weakness to take a quote from Lark Rise to Candle ford. And then there is gin .......

Juggernaut Fri 11-Nov-16 19:00:47

In this house, chocolate doesn't last long enough to be hiddengrin

sue1169 Fri 11-Nov-16 19:56:34

Choc no...cheese oh yes😊

Andyf Fri 11-Nov-16 21:32:36

I've had to hide not only chocolate but everything in the cupboard that our 20 month old GD calls the 'puddin' cupboard.

My daughter hides her stash in a plastic box in the fridge. The box is labelled "Humus" or anything else the rest of the household doesn't like!

I keep chocolate in one of my baking ingredients baskets on a shelf in the larder. I know that there are three big bars there because I found them there yesterday when I was looking for something to nibble. Just didn't fancy any so they are still there and as it is out of sight it is generally out of mind. I blame it on being post menopausal as in years past I would never have been able to resist!

Shanma Sat 12-Nov-16 00:12:22

I hide my chocolate in my Tummy grin, safe there lol

AlieOxon Sat 12-Nov-16 09:33:23

If I buy any, I freeze it! Slows my eating if it has to be thswed. Also cake. Choc bikkies I keep in the fridge, at least they are not in sight.....

Persistentdonor Sat 12-Nov-16 09:43:20

Synonymous: What is there to nibble if not chocolate? hmm

Marmight Sat 12-Nov-16 09:44:29

Not so much chocolate, but biscuits covered in it, preferably ginger Borders..... I hide them from myself in a container on the top shelf of the larder. I need a small step ladder to reach it; doesn't work. At about 4 every afternoon I get the ladder out ..... Bit sad pathetic really

Snowdrop Sat 12-Nov-16 09:45:54

I don't buy it, far too tempting!
