Giveaway: Cuppow & BNTO Jar Adapters

During the winter months, I can happily spend week after week working away at my dining room table or perched at my desk (located behind the television), without feeling even a little bit restless. Many a day has passed when I haven’t so much as stepped toe outside my apartment building. But as soon as the weather begins to warm and the days lengthen, I start to feel squirrelly.

Lately, staying inside has made me feel fidgety, as if the walls of my apartment are a particularly itchy and confining wool sweater. And so, I’ve been changing my patterns and heading outside.

Some days, I only go as far as my neighborhood coffee shop or the covered concrete patio that juts off on the west side of my apartment building. Other days (far more infrequent than I’d like), I blow off work entirely and visit a friend who moved about an hour away this time last year and had a sweet baby boy back in December.

The one thing that all these outings have in common is my devotion to always packing a snack. As someone who tries to eat well most of the time but is highly susceptible to bakery cases and bags of chips at the check-out counter, being prepared is hugely helpful in avoiding temptation.

Lately, I’ve been reaching for my stash of BNTO jar adapters from Cuppow to help me pack up portable and waste-free snacks (because even when you do find a relatively virtuous snack in the world, the amount of packaging is enough to drive an environmentally minded person a little bit crazy).

On the particularly day pictured here, I filled jars with carrot sticks, apple slices, and yogurt with a dollop of quince jam. Into the BNTO adapters, I put peanut butter, hummus, and a bit of granola (embarrassingly, it was not homemade). Some homemade cold brew went into a wide mouth pint, with one of my original Cuppow lids secured on top for easy sipping.

With picnic season upon us, I encourage you all to spend a few minutes thinking about how you pack up your sandwiches, snacks, and treats. Perhaps a new BNTO or two would make the process more streamlined and less wasteful!

To that end, for this week’s giveaway, our friends at Cuppow are up five gift codes worth $20 a piece. Five lucky Food in Jars readers will each win one code to redeem over at the Cuppow website. You can choose from Cuppow lids, BNTO jar adaptors, Mason Taps, and CoffeeSocks! Use the widget below to enter.

  1. I have 3 kids…how wouldn’t we use them? Swimming at a friends house, out staring at the clouds, hiking at our favorite nature spots, park days with friends…we could definitely put these to work!

  2. I take snacks from home when I’m out and about, especially with my two kids, and this would make it so much easier to up my game!

  3. I would like to use one for packing peanut butter with celery sticks for evening picnics in the park! Or some other veggies and dip combo.

  4. The apples and peanut butter using a bento cup look so tasty! I would definitely do that. And maybe bring a smoothie in the mornings with me using the Cuppow lid.

  5. I am heading back into the workplace after working remotely and would love a waste-free option for bringing snacks and lunch to work!

  6. Interesting lunches are so hard to make when you’re trying to stay away from cheap plastic!! I love these ‘fit in the jar’ lids & containers for lunches. I’m also fond of peanut butter & apples!! And hummus goes well with everything. One of my favorites is feta cheese in a container with a tomato/cucumber salad.

  7. I’d use them for yogurt and granola, and definitely the drinking lid for tea/iced tea! Mason jars are among my standard lunch bag containers, and these Cuppow lids would be a great addition.

  8. I’m trying to be better about bringing my lunch to work instead of buying from our vending store in the break room. I’ve been on the look out for containers that work for me, and these would be a great addition!

  9. The jar adapters would make my snack packing for work much more tidy. I am always loosing my little jars in the bottom of my bag. And the cold brew coffee is a must try.

  10. I take snacks with me to the community garden once in a while. It usually is just a piece of sourdough torn in two with two slices of salami and cheese. This would be fun if I wanted to go all out and add nuts. or dippers…I could see these working great for my son this summer. If I won these he might even let me start
    packing his lunch again. I could see vegesticks, lettuce wraps with meat and dippers. maybe even a few crackers. He is a fan of salads as well. Yes, this could put me back on his lunch maker track! I’d sure be a happy mama.

  11. I make yogurt and granola snacks and the granola is always soggy by the time I get to eat one. This would be wonderful for those and my apples and peanut butter snack! Love them!

  12. It would be so great to have these! I try to always pack lunch to take to work, and I can see how these would be a total game changer.

  13. While on a trip, rather than pass the snack boxes/containers around the car; each person can enjoy their own snack containers. Very cool idea, thanks guys.

  14. I have a mason tap already, but would love another one! We make all our salad dressings from scratch, and usually have a couple jars in the fridge at any one time. The mason taps are perfect for them!

  15. We pack our own picnic lunches when we head out fishing in the VT streams. We’ve learned to be very careful with our glass containers as we do not use plastic. These would come in very handy–no night crawlers, I promise.

  16. A few years ago, I used to drive quite a distance to work. I always packed a bag with finger food snacks like cereal squares, granola bars, juices, cheese and crackers, I called it my “I might starve bag.”

  17. I would love to use the inserts to hold dips for my children’s lunches, such as peanut butter to dip celery sticks in.

  18. I love using jars for my lunches. I like to make a fuss to get a nice lunch but if it tips over on the way to work or spills in my bag…that’s not good. I’m thinking I could really use jar inserts in my daily routine. Thanks for the offer!

  19. They would be great for salad dressings and leftovers. Great for on the go. Also great presents for your loved ones who work.

  20. This is awesome! I’ve loved these products for a while now! This is the perfect time of year to use these. With all the outdoor activities like sporting events, picnics and bike rides these would make the perfect waste free accessories for my lifestyle!!

  21. Dips for my fresh homegrown veggies…hummus and veggies…peanut butter and celery/apples and all things delish!

  22. I like using Cuppow for cereal … my grains go in the glass compartment and my yogurt or almond milk go into the little cup. I also have an amazing salted caramel recipe that I oour into the jar and add the sipper lid. I can pour it right out when it’s warm to drizzle over desserts. It’s ingenius!

  23. My friend has discovered she needs several small meals during the day because of her blood sugar levels. These would be perfect for her!!

  24. I have celiac disease, so it’s sometimes hard to find safe, gluten free food for me. I always feel better having some snacks with me just in case. These would be great for that!

  25. I could see these working great for my son this summer. If I had some of these, he might even let me start packing his lunch again. I could see vegesticks, lettuce wraps with meat and dippers.. He is a fan of salads as well. Yes, this could put me back on his lunch maker track! I’d sure be a happy mama.

  26. I would definitely use the BNTO jar adapters to take along peanut butter and hummus for my fruits and veggies when I am out and about.

  27. To take my homemade New Orleans Iced Coffee on the go! It’s brewed with chicory, cut with whole milk, absolutely delicious. After trying it for the first time at Blue Bottle Coffee in San Francisco and subsequently finding instructions for brewing on their website, it’s my favorite treat to welcome summer!

  28. now that it’s finally warming up I want to switch back to protein smoothies in the morning, power up the protein to lose weight. So I’d love to transform a mason jar to a smoothie sipper.

  29. I can put them into use by using them on our long health walks, we’d carry our snacks and beverages in them!

  30. We have multiple road trips planned for the summer as well as trips to the local park and whatnot. The BNTO is a great way to minimize the number of containers in the picnic bag!

  31. My kids will be home this would be great to send them out on their jobs and extra classes with snacks to keep them going.

  32. Would be great to pack my lunches for work! And breakfasts, I pack those, too. 12 hour shifts are long and I need sustenance.

  33. I’d Stop spending so much money and wasting time ordering takeout almost every workday lunch with BNTO! Nutella and sablé cookies ftw!

  34. I’d love to take a picnic hike this summer and pack some chips and salsa in a BNTO with a grain veggie salad and something sweet for dessert.

  35. I would use these packing lunches for work. My husband and I are trying to get healthy and have commuted to not eating out anymore.

  36. These are so cool. I would us them to make ready to go snacks in the fridge. I have two teenage boys that are always hungry. I love the idea of cut up veggies and dressing.

  37. I’d do some BNTO things! We’re about to move to more packed up snacks and lunches and I am looking forward to fun, creative solutions like this that don’t depend on a ton of tupperware.

  38. I’m all about homemade iced coffee and pink lemonade in the summer, and I’d love an easier way to tote these drinks plus lunches to work. Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. I love to go on bike rides after work in the summer and bring along a dinner picnic! It’s the best antidote to being inside all day…

  40. I would love to be able to take apples or bananas with peanut butter! 2 of my favorite snacks but hate having to buy the individual PB packs. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  41. I would so love to have an adapter to pour my salad dressings out of the jar without spilling onto our table or making a mess

  42. Question, would these also be good for holding a small amount of cabbage under its juices for sauerkraut? Just curious. I do love Cappow products for making my life easier.

  43. Oh, my. These would be great for setting up snacks/little meals for the rest of the day, or even a couple of days. In summer, I really dislike spending time in the kitchen when there are so many fun things to do outside. Plus, a lot of small meals are better during hot days.
