If you ever felt like your mom was hiding all the best treats in a secret hiding spot no one else in the family knew about, you were probably right and not alone. My mom was notorious for hiding candy she didn’t want to share!
According to a new survey, two-thirds of American moms admit they have a secret stash of snacks they don’t share with their loved ones.
The private snacking habits were revealed as part of a study of 2,000 women between 21 and 45. It turns out secret snack stashes are so common, one in four of respondents admit to having some kind of snack hidden in their home right now. And 73% say they enjoy having a quick snack “in secret.”
Sadly, even though we all snack and most of us hide our goodies away, too, a lot of women say they have felt guilt over just eating a snack and 42% say they’re embarrassed about their snacking habits. Some have snack guilt, but most women (58%) say they’re not embarrassed by their overall eating habits, so maybe they just like taking a moment for themselves every once in a while, and treating themselves to a snack when they do.
As far as what we’re snacking on, these were the top 10 snacks from this research:
