Time to play hide-and-seek

Kleenex Box

It's Friday (at least here in the U.S.) so we wanted to be a little frivolous and this posting from Epicurious touched the spot. In Top Ten Places to Hide Your Snacks Kemp Minifie aims to help those of us who'd like to make the cookies, chips, caviar, whatever just a little harder to dip into. Or, alternatively, keep them to ourselves away from greedy loved ones.

Here are some locations that have worked for those who were surveyed:

  • Bottom Shelf of the Refrigerator
  • Cleaning Supplies Cabinet
  • Dishwasher
  • Empty Cereal Box (not a popular cereal - they suggest Bran Flakes)
  • Empty Shoe Boxes
  • Kleenex Box
  • Empty Shampoo Bottles (not sure about this one - if nothing else, it seems the scent would linger - but it was apparently popular with kids at camp who hid M & M's in them)

You can read about more hiding places, and the stories behind them in the story, but we also wanted to know if any of you are particularly clever in this regard. Personally, we used to hide sugar packets in the basement pantry with the extra paper towels, etc. given that a certain female child had an addiction to sugar. When we found several on the floor with the top neatly torn off, the same child attributed it to mice. We moved the sugar.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    I love this! Years ago, my dad found a package of Milanos in the liquor cabinet -- this might not seem like a very discreet hiding place, but you have to understand that in my parents' house, the liquor cabinet only ever gets cracked open on holidays and special occasions. My mom insists to this day, that the cookies weren't hidden, but they most definitely were -- not that I can blame her since she probably wouldn't have gotten any if she left them out in the open where my brother, my dad, & could get at them!
