I hide snacks from my kids - do you do things like this?

Whenever I buy a snack I like, the kids always seem to eat that one first, and leave their icky snacks that I don't like but they supposedly LOVE in the pantry, so I started hiding the snacks I buy for myself so they can't have them and if they ever see me eating them, I tell them that's all there was, knowing they can't find my stash.

Do you hide snacks from your kids? Do you do other stuff like this just so you can enjoy something yourself without them taking it all or ruining your moment?

I don't hide snacks but I do sometimes tell them we don't have any recordings on the DVR just so I can watch shows that we usually watch together and actually HEAR the conversations the characters have on screen. My kids are teens and they're really bad about overanalyzing what's going on and talking above the TV to do it, or they'll run out to check Facebook or something and come back and want a full play-by-play in the middle of a critical scene. It's obnoxious.

Yep, I buy them whatever they want for a quick snack, then buy my favorite and keep it in my room, but if they ask nicely I will share with them.

My kids are young enough that I can just say "nope!"
I do however stash things from dh now and then.

 I do that, too, lol. We buy those bags of assorted chips so DH and the kids can take them in their lunches but there's only like one kind I like in there so I'll take the 3 bags of that flavor and hide them under the oatmeal in the pantry. DH knows I do it but the kids have no idea since we just toss the big bag the others come in and they don't really pay attention to what's supposed to be in there, lol.

Sure do! Lol My mom used to hide her honey smacks cereal when I was a kid, but I always found them. So, she started folding the inside bag a certain way so she could tell if we ate any. Lol I hide chocolate covered cherries from my kids and my so :)
