|This box says 700. The one in my|
pantry is 800.
For my business I find it necessary to keep a certain sugary food in the house that can be tricky. It is Hershey's chocolate kisses (original). It does not bother me that this is in the house if I do not smell it or have to see it every day. It would bother me to have them sitting in an open bowl or visible every time I opened the pantry door, which I open several times a day in preparing meals. Having it in the house saves me from a trip to the supermarket to buy it each time I need it for an event. Still, if it DID bother me, I'd have to be willing to make that trip to the store because no matter what, my food integrity has to come first. That lesson was hard learned.

fat bastard, isn't he?
I decided to keep the bag of chocolate kisses in the 800 count case of Splenda I keep in the pantry closet. I only go into the carton if I am the one who refills the holder I have for Splenda packets. Often my husband does it.When I do it, the juxtaposition of chocolate kisses with Splenda reminds me the kisses are not for me. I am protecting myself.
There are other dessert foods I can safely keep in the house for work. These include sealed cans of spray tube frosting and lollipops of any variety. I don't like lollipops and frosting in a sealed can does not excite my palate. I was able to keep cruddy cupcakes in the freezer for a while but that is no longer comfortable. I just buy them as I go.
Before someone asks why I feed my clients such crap as canned icing and packaged cupcakes, please understand this is NOT for them to consume. These are used for an art effect in certain events being produced for their enjoyment. I do not cater.
So, today's questions is this: when you have to have things in the house that can set you on edge, what do you do to protect yourself?
