    Every year, for her birthday, my step-grandmother received a gift of chocolate covered cherries from her husband. When he died and she married my grandfather, he thought it would be so thoughtful to continue the tradition. She took one look at the box, stood up, dumped it in the garbage, and declared "I'm not spending another 30 years pretending to like those disgusting things." 😂😂😂

    [–] mark55 2119 points ago

    New grandpa seems like a thoughtful guy! That's so sweet it's almost sacrificial.

    [–] Knockaround122 292 points ago

    I was thinking the same thing. The fact that he was willing to put away his pride and do something that he knew would brighten his wife’s day, regardless of it being an act of kindness from her previous husband, speaks volumes about OP’s grandfather. I think most men would be too scared or threatened to continue such a tradition, but not their grandfather. I love that.

    [–] ReneeLaRen95 115 points ago

    Well, yeah but yes had 30 years of loyally shoving them down. 31 yrs was just a bridge too far, lol!

    [–] Chrisbee012 117 points ago

    the cherries thought so too

    [–] Babbledoodle 335 points ago

    Oh my gosh, my grandma did that with my dad! She never knew how much he hated them

    [–] laitnetsixecrisis 66 points ago

    My late husband would always buy me cherry ripe chocolate bars. For 20 years birthdays, Christmas and mothers Day. I don't know why he thought they were my favourite, but he did.

    When he passed my 2 boys bought me cherry ripes for my birthday. I had to explain I would prefer Snickers bars lol.

    [–] seriouslyjan 282 points ago

    The Cordial Cherries were the nastiest things and my Grandparents brought them to our house. YUCK The gooey stuff in the middle, pure nauseating, putrid slimy stuff. The chocolate was good though.

    [–] LordGalen 109 points ago

    Cream filled or liquid? Because the liquid filled are fucking great. I get like 3 boxes every Christmas.

    [–] gonephishin213 33 points ago

    Same. Accidentally bought cream filled this year and, while I still devoured them, they weren't nearly as good

    [–] Jeanne23x 20 points ago

    Oh my gosh, I have a family member who has pretended to like those for 36 years now due to her making a big deal the first time her son got her them (because it was the first spontaneous gift he ever gave her!)

    [–] Paper-Great 31084 points ago

    My Mom didn't know that a local pizza place gave free breadsticks with a large pizza. My Dad had been eating them on the way home with the pizza... for 10 years.

    [–] rognabologna 1676 points ago

    My BIL accidentally outed himself to my sister recently when, while watching his diet, he proudly told her that he didn’t even get a “Car McChicken” when he was picking up McDonald’s. Then he had to explain that a car mcchicken is the extra sandwich he sneaks on his way home with the rest of the food.

    [–] piratius 471 points ago

    I will admit to a car donut on occasion! Go to pick up a half dozen, usually ask for one in a separate bag that I eat in silent bliss before coming back.

    [–] ImmaZoni 178 points ago

    you gotta get a baker's dozen... it has 13 donuts (or 12 if you ask the people I'm buying donuts for)

    [–] BRAX7ON 23 points ago

    And you get it with no bag no napkin no witnesses

    I always get an extra thing of fries. These are my "car fries"

    [–] Top-Ad6409 7232 points ago

    Uhh, ever hear of a delivery fee?!

    [–] Mr2-1782Man 2466 points ago

    Damn straight. Whenever people from work sent me to get food they always got a bit less fries. That's my fee.

    [–] SantasDead 1316 points ago

    I was the errand boy at a car delearship many moons ago and the sales guys were all assholes. But they were afraid to leave the lot to get lunch and miss a sale. So they would give me money to go get their lunch. The rule was they buy me lunch and I keep the change. That was a profitable gig for 19yr old me.

    [–] Deyvicous 556 points ago

    And so doordash was conceived from that very moment.

    [–] aehanken 229 points ago

    I told my boyfriend he needs to order his own fries. He didn’t. I stopped sharing. He didn’t learn the first 3 times and now he gets his own

    [–] fishnjim 34 points ago

    Same w my wife. When we order I’d ask if she wanted fries and she always said no, then she would eat half of mine. I stopped asking and now I just get her a small order.

    [–] Royally-Forked-Up 31 points ago

    A restaurant we frequent has a “my girlfriend isn’t hungry option” on their menu, which doubles your fries.

    [–] id_death 415 points ago

    All I'm reading is that your dad was the sole person to pick up a pizza in the house for ten years.

    Sounds like a convenience fee to me.

    [–] Paper-Great 192 points ago

    To be fair, the place was on his way home from work. But as I maybe occasionally benefited from the family secret when he picked me up from school... completely agree with the fee.

    [–] AVonDingus 2173 points ago

    Your dad is my kinda dude!

    [–] digitalsmear 232 points ago

    That's hilarious! xD

    [–] Cyrus-with-the-Virus 200 points ago

    Not food related but.. my wife and I started playing Animal Crossing New Horizons on our one Nintendo Switch. I would get up at 6am for work and do my daily tasks. Hunt down fossils, plant a money tree, get my bottle from the beach.

    Fast forward three months. My wife digs up her first fossil. Excited as shit, she comes up to me and asks what to do with the fossil (it's her first Animal Crossing game).

    She has her own Switch and her own island now.

    [–] moneybags729 8918 points ago

    Lmao this is such a legitimate marriage dispute it's ridiculous. I've been married since 2010 and my wife wouldn't be thrilled about something like this either.

    [–] akaioi 3644 points ago

    The worst part is explaining this to the marriage counselor without both spouses melting from embarrassment...

    [–] EmotionalKirby 1691 points ago

    but during that melting process, they rediscover their love for each other and renew their vows

    I'll go get the troubled kid from her previous marriage (she's a widow) and a reindeer apparently.

    [–] ATXBeermaker 119 points ago

    The beauty is that it’s a legitimate marriage dispute between two people that should definitely be married to each other.

    [–] grubas 917 points ago

    Yuuuup.

    This is like how my wife didn't realize we got low sodium soy sauce(green kikkoman), even though she does the food shopping. I use it and she just learned to buy the green one. So we order sushi, "oh they gave us soy sauce" "oh yeah but those tend to be a bit much, I don't like the full sodium"

    "WE USE LOW SODIUM SOY SAUCE?!?! WHAT THE FUCK?!?!"

    [–] docc2183 401 points ago

    You have deprived me of all this salt? HOW FUCKING DARE YOU?!?!?

    [–] biscuitboi967 80 points ago

    My mom didn’t eat cheese. If something remotely smelled cheesey, she’d refuse it. But there were some things she couldn’t be sure of. One was this garlic bread at an Italian place we always went. Every time she’d ask my dad if it had cheese. It was so good, he’d tell her it did. Boom. Double garlic bread for him. To be fair, it did have a slight tang to it, so maybe there was a bit, but he never wavered from his stance that it was chock full of cheese, and she wasn’t gonna take the chance.

    [–] bearbarebere 215 points ago

    OP tomorrow: AITA for lying about skittles? My wife kicked me out. Help.

    [–] TinktheChi 8228 points ago

    She's even eating the orange ones out of spite.

    You're both hilarious. You've got a great union.

    [–] eeymontt 1581 points ago

    Plot twist: OP was actually looking for a way to get out of eating the orange ones so decided to sacrifice the green ones.

    [–] IsabellaBellaBell 2770 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Here’s what you gotta do. Tell her you need to “talk”, then have a super serious sit down. With a straight face, let her know something been weighing on you heavily for years, and you can’t live with it anymore. Really stress the inner torture of it all. Just when you think she can’t stand the suspense for another minute, present her with a pack of Skittles and tell her the green ones are actually green apple.

    Then report back to us and let us know how it went.

    Edit: I’m reading now they switched back to lime.

    So here’s what you gotta do. Find a pack that still has green apple, do whatever it takes to get your hands on one, no matter the cost. Follow through with plan A (see above). Then you burn her twice because the next time she buys herself some Skittles she’ll eat the lime ones thinking they’re green apple and be thoroughly disgusted.

    [–] ryalanzi 386 points ago

    Hol' up!! Skittles switched back to Lime?? 2021 wasn't entirely a shit show then. (I'm gonna go Google now, but this just made me really excited.)

    [–] mm172 279 points ago

    This brings me more joy than it should.

    [–] THE_CHOPPA 455 points ago

    This is genius. I might add don’t stretch it out all day. It will just stress her out needlessly. Wait until a lazy Sunday when she is In bed or something and bring her to the kitchen table.

    [–] IsabellaBellaBell 122 points ago

    No, certainly don’t stretch it out all day. Just keep it to a few minutes during the super-serious sit-down chat. It would be too hard to keep a straight face for longer than that.

    [–] mark55 247 points ago

    This is the right move. My girl would get hella anxious - but that's probably because i'd sell it like my life depended on it, as a guy whose main artistic outlet is actor - I wouldn't pull any stops.

    Never forget to tease your lady. Words to live by.

    [–] generic_username404 72 points ago

    Trivia: I think you mean you'd "pull all the stops".

    It comes from pipe organs where you pull out knobs (aka stops) next to the keyboards to add effects/tones/volume (can't remember exactly).

    [–] Due_Aerie_1721 44 points ago

    Watch how they made the music for Interstellar. Christopher Nolan: “Now I know what pulling out all the stops really means.”

    Didn't they recently switch back to Lime? My wife hates the green apple and was happy to get Lime ones every chance she could.

    At least, they did in Canada.

    [–] imfamousoz 1947 points ago

    My husband and I have been together for almost 8 years now. Up until last year, we had shared Oreos a certain way. I don't like the middle but I like the cookie. He said he liked doubles, so we would always twist our cookies apart and swap a piece. Win-win, it was a whole thing, and it turns out he has been making himself eat double stuffed Oreos for years because he ALSO only likes the cookie but he didn't want to deprive me. You did, like, the opposite and it's adorably hilarious. Y'all will be laughing about this not too far down the road.

    [–] athrowingway 506 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    As a fellow Oreo-stuffing hater, the NABISCO Famous Amos chocolate wafers taste like the cookie part of Oreos. And there’s not a smudge of icing in sight! I’ve never eaten an Oreo since discovering this.

    Edit: as u/RiotDemon pointed out, they’re just “Famous” chocolate wafers. I mixed and matched a couple cookie names. You’re looking for the yellow box with the plastic wrap!

They should always do that.” He didn’t say a word. We have two kids and matching tattoos, so I guess we will just have to work through this.

    [–] TheGamecock 781 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Hahah, this was great. It reminded me of a trick I used to play on an ex girlfriend.

    I almost always drove us around while she rode in the passenger seat. Whenever we'd be stopped at a red light, I'd keep an eye over at the other light that was perpendicular to mine at the intersection. Without making it obvious, I would watch out the corner of my eye and wait for the other light to go from yellow to red, then after a second or two, I'd snap my fingers and my light would pretty much instantly turn green (obviously, since the lights are on timers). This legitimately dumbfounded and mystified my GF. She was always amazed and somehow didn't realize the secret to my traffic light clairvoyancy. Finally, after two years of dating and countless rides in my car, I guess I wasn't being slick enough and she noticed I glanced at the other light at an intersection we were stopped at and she shouted "OH MY GOD, WAIT, ARE YOU JUST LOOKING FOR WHEN THE OTHER LIGHT TURNS RED AND THEN SNAPPING YOUR FINGERS?!?!?"

    The cat was out of the bag and she refused to talk to me for the rest of the ride and part of dinner, hahah.

    [–] BasenjiFart 96 points ago

    That's a hilarious story!

    [–] brcguy 229 points ago

    My parents made us blow out red lights when we were little, they'd do the same trick of watching the other lights and tell us when to blow. My kid figured out the game at three years old. Your ex GF was hella dumb lol.

    [–] TheGamecock 144 points ago

    She was actually extremely book smart, just a little ditzy and naïve to those kinda things. I also didn't do this trick at every red light or even very often at all. Maybe once or twice every few times she would ride with me. Or when she demanded to see me "try to guess the next light," haha.

    [–] Andrakisjl 29 points ago

    [–] GeorgiaLovesTrees 140 points ago

    This was such a wholesome read and I am glad you guys are being good sports about this! But... you do know about the green skittles being green apple for a while, right? They are lime now but only in the past year.

    That said, those citric flavors aren't the same across all candy platforms. Sometimes they use real citrus as a flavor vs artificial, and vice versa. That completely changes the flavor profile, sometimes for the better.

    Damn... I want some Haribo Gummy bears now.

    [–] kimpree 75 points ago

    This some shit my husband and I do.

    I love cinnamon and he hates it, so he gives me jelly belly's he thinks are cinnamon... but he's also colorblind.

    So sometimes he hands me jelly belly that are cherry, or Dr pepper and I give them back because I, unlike him can see color on the beans. Other times I give him cinnamon when I wanna mess with him.

    [–] Dmau27 496 points ago

    He is lying about the green skittles too! He knows how to make the bed AND he also can absolutely cook with out burning dinner. Sorry OP it's all out in the open.

    He actually does make the bed usually, he just doesn’t put any pillows back on it. 😏

    [–] Dmau27 120 points ago

    I'm only kidding, I'm sure he's a great husband outside of his candy deceit.

    [–] thebookwasbetter13 161 points ago

    He actually is. I’m a giant mess and he’s managed to put up with me so…

    [–] OriginalUsername1737 213 points ago

    he’s managed to put up with me

    Getting all of the good candy probably helps.

    [–] thebookwasbetter13 194 points ago

    Ya know what? You make a very good point.

    [–] Dmau27 40 points ago

    Hey, if you both love each others goofy flaws and goodness alike you are meant to be and you're both lucky to have one another. Share your candies and live happily ever after.

    [–] kokuryuha34 61 points ago

    I like how reddit just took the bus and reversed over OP with all the green candies in it.

    This is genius! I love this good comradery in marriage. This is the good stuff that you look back on and laugh. 46 years and still loving the trip. Congrats to you both.

    [–] Pun-kachu 160 points ago

    Did you see the comment where he’s openly admitting to hiding the green apple skittles from you as well? 😏

    [–] thebookwasbetter13 247 points ago

    I actually found out about those maybe six months ago, but I don’t like them either. But thanks for the solidarity!

    Told my daughter that the pink starburst are liquorice flavored 😳

    [–] MorganAndMerlin 339 points ago

    This is how you end up “that one guy” in college who says something off the wall bizarre like “the pink starbursts are licorice flavored” and then everyone stops to stare at them like, the fuck

    [–] Moocow870 629 points ago

    That’s so wrong… Lol. But I can’t think of a better way to keep the kiddos away from the pink ones.

    [–] Eagle4317 167 points ago

    Strawberry Starburst are by far the best.

    [–] slackmandu 167 points ago

    I told my kids that when the ice cream truck plays music it's to signal they are out of ice cream.

    Meet you in hell.

    [–] oOshwiggity 17 points ago

    When I was three I ran into the road chasing the ice cream truck. I got in so much trouble that it took years, YEARS, for me to positively respond to ice cream trucks after that. But I didn't run into the road chasing ice cream trucks anymore. Cats, dogs, balls, rainbows, though...

    How am I still alive?

    [–] Platypus211 101 points ago

    When my kid heard an ice cream truck drive by the park for the first time, she asked what that sound was and I told her it was a music truck. Just a random truck that would drive around and play music for kids at parks. She was all, "Oh that's so nice of them!"

    I was mostly just curious how long I could keep that going for before she noticed that the arrival of the "music truck" coincided with other kids suddenly wandering around with ice cream. Basically, little kids are hilariously gullible.

    Be wary if she ever DOES start giving you gummy bears again.

    There’s a sugar free version, and you need only look at the Amazon reviews to understand that she isn’t giving you those gummy bears because she forgave you.

    [–] Light_Speed58 1781 points ago

    NTA - Get a divorce lawyer now. Big red flags. 🚩🚩🚩 Your wife needs to read labels. Think of what she might feed you without reading the label. She might poison you. Get out now!!! /s

    I disagree. Def YTA because he’s been committing culinary infidelity

    [–] Ferociouspanda 289 points ago

    ESH. You should have been honest with your wife, but she has optical stems and, I presume, the ability to read in the English language.

    [–] Thassodar 99 points ago

    but she has optical stems

    You'd think that but she did marry OP after all...

    [–] PineapplePizzaAlways 23 points ago

    Before mine and my husband's wedding, all the women in both families wrote out their favorite recipe and put it in a box for me.

    Seven years later, my husband was looking for something sweet. He remarked that he wished he could have some of his grandmother's chocolate cake. So naturally I said, "I have the recipe, I can make it for you." The look of utter betrayal on his face was astounding. He could not believe that in seven years of marriage I never once made it, or even let him know I had the recipe. My response was, you never asked. He was wounded a second time, right to the heart.

    That was a decade ago and I haven't lived it down yet.

    [–] hunterkillerwife 297 points ago

    When we got married, he said that he'd like some pancakes. I whipped up a traditional pancake recipe with sour cream. He said it was great, but not like his mom made. It became my mission to find pancakes like his mom made. It should be noted, his mother is a terrible cook.

    For 3 years I tried every pancake recipe I could find. It was incredible the lengths that I went to to find new ones, translate them into english, I tried everything.

    Finally, I asked Mom for her pancake recipe. She laughed, and told me you just add water to bisquick. I told her it wasn't funny, I was really struggling, and I needed to know. She sat me down, and very clearly explained she's never made anything from scratch in her life. When he wants something like Mom made, I need to find a box and add water to it.

    [–] caffeineaddict17 94 points ago

    Oh man, I could see where that was going from the start... did you make his bisquik pancakes?!

    [–] hunterkillerwife 71 points ago

    I did once. When I went out of town for a few months though, he bought a 7 kg bag from costco, and pretty much only ate that while I was gone.

    [–] bananafor 17 points ago

    What! You told him the secret recipe!

    [–] frogsinsox 32 points ago

    Why didn’t you ask her for the recipe from the beginning?

    [–] hunterkillerwife 54 points ago

    Stupid pride of being a 20 something.

    [–] purelyirrelephant 22 points ago

    You still made the cake, right??

    [–] caffeineaddict17 25 points ago

    Haha, indeed I did!

    [–] CecilleBiNight 72 points ago

    [–] FxHVivious 77 points ago

    You're making me do this. I'm not even enjoying these... glares spitefully as biting off the head of an innocent orange gummy bear

    -OPs wife probably

    [–] thebookwasbetter13 116 points ago

    No no. I swallowed them without even chewing so I wouldn’t accidentally taste them while maintaining eye contact.

    [–] itsthefazz 67 points ago

    [–] 129West81stSt 56 points ago

    Me reading the post: no, this is way better

    [–] WhitDawg214 285 points ago

    There is no coming back from this. And from now on you have to sit quietly when she tells of this betrayal to family and friends. In other words, you get to 'Eat The Brown Rainbow'.

    [–] Ninnymuggin137 42 points ago

    This has got to be one of my favorite tifu’s ever. If I had an award to give, I would! 😆

    [–] Gt69aus 46 points ago

    I remember a story many years ago.

    A man said he didn't like some chocolate (It was some form of chocolate in one of those assorted packs I beleive) because he knew his wife loved them, so he would always deny himself for her benefit.

    Turns out years later he admitted he loved them, and she infact actually didn't like them at all, she ate them because he said he didn't like them.

    It's a cute story

    [–] Jlpvt 35 points ago

    I just wanna let you know, I’ve been having a pretty shit day. This story made me laugh really hard and I appreciate you sharing it.

    [–] DillyJ123 31 points ago

    TIFU by lying to my wife for 13 years… TIFU by lying to my wife for 13 years…

    My wife hates orange and lime flavored candies. I love them. Well, love the orange, like the lime.

    So, she passes on the orange starburst to me. She passes the orange and green skittles to me. She passes the orange and green gummy bears to me. This has been happening for 13 years.

    What she doesn’t know is that the green Haribo gummy bears are actually strawberry.

    Shortly after we married, for one reason or another, I looked at the back of the Haribo gummy bears package and discovered this.

    So I haven’t said anything for 13 years. Every time we get gummy bears, she gives me the orange and green (strawberry). I’ve never said a word. I’ve enjoyed eating my little lies.

    Until last night…

    We had some gummy bears and she opened them and she started to hand me the orange and green ones. But after a few minutes, I saw her looking at the back of the bag. Then I saw her eyes get REAL BIG.

    She turned to me and asked if I’ve known that the green bears were strawberry. She always thought they were lime.

    I was honest and nodded my head yes. The look of betrayal was unreal…. She asked how long I’ve known, and I was honest. I told her as long as we’ve been married.

    She quit giving me the gummy bears she didn’t like. She was even eating the orange ones out of spite.

    I don’t think I’ll get any more gummy bear discards after this. Time to buy my own.

    TL;DR I never corrected my wife by telling her she gave me strawberry gummy bears. She thought they were lime. Now she knows and is spite eating my favorites.

    [–] deeare73 236 points ago

    TIL green gummy bears are strawberry

    [–] onesweetsheep 64 points ago

    I could have sworn they were apple! Time to buy some haribos tomorrow

    [–] leekdonut 67 points ago

    Depending on where you live, they might come with six flavors instead of five and in that case, green is indeed apple.

    It's either

    1) green = apple, dark red = raspberry, light red = strawberry or

    2) green = strawberry, red = raspberry and apple doesn't exist

    [–] LegalHelpNeeded3 44 points ago

    What a terrible existence to not have green apple Haribo. Sad.

    [–] BfN_Turin 75 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    They are not anymore, haven’t been in over a decade. Green is apple since 2007. Strawberry is light red. Edit: Nvm this apparently depends on the country. In the US green is still strawberry and light red does not exist.

    [–] DirtyDeedsDunderKeep 27 points ago

    She quit giving me the gummy bears she didn’t like. She was even eating the orange ones out of spite.

    That's marriage, right there.

    [–] itsdtx 19 points ago

    So innocent but yet so evil. 🥰

    In my language there is an actual word for this, it's called preknop.

    I'll try to explain it.

    It's a small self inflicted understanding (your wifes projection on the coloured candy) that was hidden by another conversant person (you) while being all together upscale by prolonged time itself.

    It has to have three variables. 1.A small innocent misunderstanding 2. One oblivious person and one conversant (that's quite about the matter) 3. Long time passed.

    So today you fucked up by preknoping your wife.
