Regular Mouth Cuppow Review + Giveaway

Back in the early days of my canning jar obsession, there really weren’t fun accessories for mason jars. We had the regular old two-piece lids, the commercial one-piece lids and those white plastic lids designed for dry goods storage. That was it. There weren’t any reCAPs, leather sleeves and if you had a jar cozy, chances were good that it had been a sock in a previous life.

Things have changed rapidly in the last four+ years. Of all the new doo-dads now available for jars, my favorite is the Cuppow. I wrote about the original wide mouth version when it was released back in January and even then had a feeling that I was going to be a rabid fan of this sturdy plastic disk. And I was right. It has rapidly become a favorite in my travel mug world.


About a week ago, I got an email from the creators of the Cuppow. They wanted to let me know that they’d decided to release another lid, this one designed to fit regular mouth jars. What’s more, the new lid was going to feature something they’re calling “Straw-Tek.” That means they’ve designed the sippy hole in such a way that you can also insert a drinking straw into it without entirely crushing the straw.

In addition to really liking the fact that I can fit a straw into this lid, I’m also pleased with its performance as a drinking lid. They’ve made the opposite vent hole slightly bigger on this lid than on my original wide mouth version, and so it doesn’t have that slight whistle that the first one had. Like the original, it’s also easy to clean, entirely free of BPA and doesn’t have any funky, plastic-y scent.

It will come as no surprise to you that I was giddy when my two-pack of regular mouth lids arrived. I popped one open, gave it a rinse and poured myself a jar of iced tea. It was love at first sip.

Because Cuppow creators Joshua and Aaron know that my readers are just as crazy for all things jar as I am, they’ve given me five sets of Cuppows to give away. As in, each winner gets a regular mouth and a wide mouth Cuppow. Pretty nice of them, don’t you think?

    Blackberry shrub. Blackberries, smashed and simmered with sugar, water, balsamic vinegar and a sprig of rosemary. Strain, cool and serve over crushed ice or with sparkling water. Yummy!

    Peach ice tea with a splash of lemonade in a jar filled with ice! I make sun tea extra strong so I can pile in the ice.

    What a clever idea for reusing my canning jars. My daughter, who recently had a new baby has been wondering what to do with all my canning jars that I send home with her full of goodies and now she has something new to use the for besides just returning for refills…!!!

    I like to make an iced tea with 3 different mints and some lavender (sometimes sage too) from my garden. It’s the best.

    I am new to your site, but not new to the love of canning jars:)
    My favorite hot weather beverage is tahitian limeade! You use coconut water instead of good old H2O.

    I’ve been loving my kombucha this summer and for hot weather, not much beats some herb and fruit infused probiotic bubbly beverages! My favorite so far has been a watermelon-thyme kombucha.

    I guess my favorite hot beverage is green tea with fresh lemons in it. I am not a coffee drinker so I experiment with tea, especially puruh teas. Lots of antioxidents and earthy flavors.
