Angry Sock-eating dog

Our Golden Retriever has a habit of seeking out our socks and chewing them up. I scold her whenever I catch her doing it, but she just can't seem to break the habit. They are irresisitible to her! She'll even go and get the same sock I took away from her 5 seconds before. I think it's an addiction!

We tried getting laundry hampers that were taller so she wouldn't be able to get into them, but she just pulls them over, steals some socks and makes a run for it. Sometimes she brings them to us to show us what she's got, and other times she hides with them and chews them to pieces. I'm getting tired of scolding her with no results. Any suggestions?
Best regards,
