The act of sharing food is often described as an intimate gesture. While most people don't mind if you grab something from their plate without consent, others may like to guard their meals and enjoy it themselves. Not only this, but sometimes we like to stash our favourite snacks and hide them from everyone else. And if you fall in the latter category, you'll definitely be able to relate to this post. Recently, a Reddit user shared how she hides a secret candy stash from her husband. The post prompted many people to share similar stories. The woman also asked internet users if it was the right thing to do so.
The photo was shared on Reddit by user u/thisisultimate. In the post, a woman explains how she keeps a secret candy stash for herself. And if her husband asks about the candies, she does not wish to tell him. If he finds out, the woman simply moves the candies away to another place. In the post, she wrote, "This really bothers my husband that I basically am keeping secret treats from him that he can't have, (especially) when we share everything else and have shared finances. It's the principle of the matter for him. He doesn't like that I'm willing to be secretive about something, and also that there is something I am not willing to share."
She further added, "I like having a treat that is just mine, that I can have at any point and know exactly how much is left. No, looking forward to a treat, only to discover the last of it has already been finished. To be honest, I do like the secrecy of it too and think this is a pretty innocent way of having a secret." The woman further shared some details about how they share finances and do grocery shopping together. Take a look at the post here:

"My wife has a secret candy stash. I know where it is. I know what's in it. She doesn't know that I know. And I leave it alone because it's hers."
"I have a secret snack stash too. Well, my husband knows where it's at but my kids don't. I have a secondary location that no one knows about. It's the same snacks we have in the pantry but I like to keep extra for myself because my kids eat everything."
"I've always had a secret candy stash. My parents both have candy stashed. My husband has his own stash too. We are really just hiding candy from our kids."
"Your spouse is being weird and petty over you having a small thing to yourself. He doesn't need to know or have access to everything you do or eat. You are sharing everything else it seems. He could buy his own candy. He is making it a big deal when it is not."
