Cuppow Canning Jar Lids and Lunchbox Adapter Giveaway!

Smoothie Time!

Smoothie Time!

By now you might have gathered that glass is my favorite reusable container material.  Especially with the news about BPA-Free plastics, I’m trying to use glass as much as possible.  My quest just got a little easier now that I’ve discovered Cuppow canning jar drinking lids.

I was looking for an easier way to give Franci her smoothies when I came across this new product. Since smoothies are too thick to drink through a sippy cup, I started using reusable straws (I like the glass ones best, but metal is a bit more practical). This was better than trying to spoon the smoothie into her mouth, but it was still a little messy. That’s when I turned to the internet and discovered Cuppow canning jar drinking lids.

Although Frances can’t be completely trusted with the glass jars unsupervised – she’s only one, after all – smoothie time goes much more smoothly with a lid. It keeps the straw in place and aimed at the deepest part of the liquid, and if the cup tips too much the liquid doesn’t spill out.

Cuppow canning jar drinking lids aren’t just good for kids, either. I’ve been filling a jar up with tea and taking it in the car when I run errands. The Regular Mouth Cuppow fits on a regular jar, which fits perfectly in my car’s drink holder. It’s easier to drink out of than a water bottle while driving, and prevents spills and leaks better than a disposable coffee cup with lid.

No more soggy cereal!

I’ve even been using one at home on a quart size jar, because there is something very satisfying numberswiki.com

about pulling liquid through the spout. Plus, I’m a total klutz when it comes to my drink glasses, and hardly a week goes by where I don’t accidentally knock one over. So much less spills out now that I’ve put a lid on it!

It turns out that Cuppow makes a Canning Jar Lunchbox Adaptor too. It’s a great way to keep your cereal separate from your yogurt until it’s time to eat. Or your salad dressing separate from your greens. Or your croutons separate from your soup (glass being microwave safe, after all). I’ve yet to find a wide-mouth quart jar to try this out, but I was happy to keep my puffs crunchy until snack time!

So in honor of reusable glass containers and making them even more user friendly, we’re giving away a set of Cuppow lids and accessories. The lucky winner will receive 1 Wide Mouth Cuppow, 1 Regular Mouth Cuppow, 1 Wide Mouth BNTO, all in clear.

    Those are so neat! I’d never seen or heard of these adapters but I am on the same page with using glass. I especially like that glass can hold cold liquid, or be heated, and is dishwasher safe, doesn’t stain or show wear and tear like plastics do. I reuse the heck out of glass jars I happen to get from the store and store soups, stocks, sauces, etc. in the freezer to grab on the way out the door for lunch at work so I might have to buy some standard jars in order to use any of these adapters….well worth it methinks. BTW, Frances’ hair is the bomb!

  2. This is so cool! I can’t believe I have never heard of them before. They would be perfect for travel or when my nieces and nephew come over! Using glass jars are definetly my number one choice. Sometimes I get strange looks when I’m drinking out of a mason jar. But who cares!

  3. I have been interested in these forever!
