Giveaway: Gift Card from The Pint and a Half

pint and a half products

Many years ago, I fantasized about opening a coffee shop in which, for an extra $1, we’d sell to-go iced drinks in mason jars with holes punched in the lid for the straw. Basically, I was only in it for the jar accessories.

Happily, there have been a number of different companies that have popped up in the last few years that have started offering all manner of mason jar toppers, drink adaptors, lids, and sleeves.

And now, there’s a shop that pulls all the different lids, sleeves, straws, and converters into a single place. Called The Pint and a Half, it’s a site devoted to celebrating the jar a drink vessel and I am delighted to welcome them to the jar blog scene (if there is such a thing).


One of the products they offer that I’ve not seen elsewhere is the neoprene jar sleeve. Available to fit either a 24 ounce pint & half jar (that’s the Koverz) or a 12 ounce jelly jar (known as the Kidzikoo), it allows you to pack a chilled drink without having it sweat all over your hand, cup holder, or desk. They have them in a bunch of different colors, but I’m more than a little taken by the zebra stripe version (I’ve always had a thing for animal prints).

And if the full coverage sleeve isn’t your thing, there are also these nifty silicone Eco Sleeves. They’ll give you a good grip without covering the entirety of your jar.

They also offer a nice selection of straws, cleaning brushes, and long-handled spoons (all the better for eating your morning yogurt parfait out of a pint jar). I’ve tried a number of reusable straws over the years and I really like the Glass Dharma Straws (I have some that I bought several years ago). They are nearly unbreakable (I dropped one behind my washing machine a while back and it survived unscathed) and don’t impact the flavor of your drink at all.

The Pint and a Half

Now, time for the giveaway! April from The Pint and a Half is offering Food in Jars readers a chance to win a $50 store credit plus $8.50 to cover shipping (that’s enough shipping credit to cover one jar and several accessories) in her online shop.
