    Could you buy a box of something she doesn't like and hide your full carb fudge pops in that container? Get her a box of the low carb ones too. Then if you eat one of the secret fudge pops, it wouldn't look out of place and she may assume it's the no added sugar kind.

    I don't agree with this solution morally, but it might work for you.

    It sounds like she has a sweet tooth--don't we all? Maybe find out what kind of dessert she feels comfortable eating and road test that for a week or so. Then reconvene and see how it's working out for both of you.

    I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two about married life over the years! :)
  3. I have one of those but I don't or very rarely eat sweet foods/deserts. I can't understand the attraction.
    My Marshall fridge contains Rainer beer. There's absolutely no reason for these to have a freezer compartmento_O... like a 24 karat gold plated toilet. Cheers, Barrie.

    I find it funny. -Both the request and the comments.

    Being seven months into a very low carb, two meal a day, diet I've had to occasional deal with 'yum lusts' myself.

    Jan both cooperates with me and encourages me, and I take it as my responsibility to pay attention solely to what I eat, and not what she eats.

    An occasional cold Guiness with her supper? No problem!
    A square of dark chocolate for her finish? Nio problem.
    Mashed potatoes with creamy butter with her steak? Ditto.
    Blueberry pancakes on Sunday morning? No problem. (I even make them for her!)

    But popcorn in the microwave while we're watching a movie. NO! NO! Please, PLEASE, NO!!!

    Oh.... that scent...

    Good luck
    If you can get your own small freezer or find a way to hide the fudge pops

    You have to let her have her way

    I live with three women, my wife and 10 and 13 year old daughters

    you can’t fight, it just makes it worse

    Those Marshall refrigerators are ridiculously expensive. Buy an inexpensive freezer and a cheap, used amp. Recover the freezer with the grill cloth and glue to face plate and knobs to it. Stick a guitar cable in the jack.

    Just run down to the corner store and get ONE when you feel the need. Eat it on the way home.

    LOL! I used to buy two on my way home and eat one on the way. When the missus would find one in the freezer I would tell her I bought two but that I ate hers on the way home! :D

    She never seemed to be on board with it... ;)

    I'm a bomb pop man myself, usually after mowing the lawn or doing yard work. No summer is complete without a constant supply in my freezer, so I feel your pain.

    My kids and I bought some of those for Independence Day, and I hadn't had one in probably 2 decades. I remember them being HUGE, now its just a regular size popsicle.

    A life without fudge pops is not worth living.

    Sorry OP, but it's time to eject.

    They did used to be huge. I can't find the larger ones anywhere, even at the ice cream truck. So I eat two smaller ones when the craving is super.

    Before I got married, I lived in a high-rise apartment building up the hill from where I am now. One of my neighbors there used to do that with potato chips.

    He'd go out to the bodega on the corner and buy one small bag of chips, and then he'd eat them in the laundry room on the first floor before going back up to his apartment. I was doing laundry one time when he was there and he explained, "I'm not allowed to have these because my wife thinks I need to lose weight."

    Then he dumped what was left in the bag into his mouth and tossed the bag into the trash, and as he headed out toward the elevators he shrugged and sighed, "I know she's gonna smell it on me, anyway." :)
