Default How would you fade this?

I'm still working on fine-tuning Juno's leash manners, especially in distracting environments. The treat that has been of highest value to her and keeps her trotting in perfect position even at the dog park has been peanut butter, which I put in a food tube.

My only problem is that I don't know how to fade the visual of the tube. It's to the point where if she doesn't see it, then she knows I don't have it. You know with other treats you can keep them in your pocket, and the dog never knows if you have them or not... but this plastic tube isn't exactly something that I can easily conceal in my pocket, or put out of sight in any other way? I haven't found anything else that generates the same response from her, otherwise I'd use that.... except for canned dog food... which of course also needs to be put in the tube

So I'm just looking for ways that I can alter her mind so she stops thinking "oh, I don't see the tube, you must not have anything."
