Giveaway: Cuppow Lids and BNTO Adaptors

February 29, 2016

New BNTO Colors - Food in Jars

Our friends over at Cuppow have been really busy lately. Not only have they added more colors to their line-ups of Cuppow drink lids and BNTO jar lunchbox adaptors, they’ve added the most beautifully packaged laundry powder from The Simply Co. to their shop that I’ve ever seen (it comes in a sturdy, reusable 32 ounce jar!).

New Cuppow Colors - Food in Jars

In case you’re unfamiliar with Cuppow, they are the makers of the original mason jar drink lid adaptor and the inventor of the BNTO, which allows you to transform a mason jar into a two-part food storage (great for picnics and snacks on the go). Whenever I know that I’m going to be away from home for most of the day, I tuck some cut fruit into a jar and pop a BNTO in on top and pour some nuts into it. Nothing better to prevent lousy snacking that being prepared!

  • BTNO will be used for snacks like granola and yogurt, chips and salsa, veggies and dip. The Cuppow will be used for summer drinks and vinaigrettes. I would like both red please!

  • I’m a compulsive snacker. I do pretty well, keeping dried fruit in my desk and sticking with that where possible, but sometimes that just isn’t enough. I think I’d use it for yogurt and granola (to keep the granola crunchy)!

  • I’m a nurse, so we don’t get actual meals at work. Packing healthy foods to snack on throughout the day is what keeps me sane and satisfied. Fruit/yogurt, veg/hummus, soup/oyster crackers…I could go on and on!

  • I run a farm that provides physical therapy sessions via horses and riding. It is a busy and sometimes really dirty environment. I would use the BNTO to keep my food protected in a reuseable jar.

  • I really like this idea! I could see so many uses – hummus and veggies, oatmeal and toppings, cottage cheese and fruit, salad with dressing…. those would be so helpful and handy! Thank you for the chance to win!

  • We have a couple Cuppowscand LOVE them. Problem is, we don’t have enough and can’t ever find them when we need them. Needless to say, some more would be great! Hope I win!

  • Great for taking to lectures at college; having snack and drink or whatever in one container would be a great convenience.

  • My man works nights (shoutout to Dr Thunder Karaoke!) and doesn’t always have time to eat before he runs off to work, where they’re usually serving not exactly healthy bar food. I’ll sometimes send him off with soup or other leftovers, but a BNTO would be great for storing one of his fave snacks — carrots and hummus!

  • I take my lunch almost every day in a mason jar and the bnto lid would save me from having to pack croutons, nuts or cheese in a separate container.

  • Currently doing everything I can to lose some weight and change my eating habits. While we have been easily transitioning into what we cook at home or buy for snacks, I’ve been surprised at how little I have in the way of smart storage! This would help a ton in helping me portion and take items to work!

  • Something to make my eating easier and healthier! Yayyy! Even if I don’t win one I think one of these is on my to buy list.

  • I use Mason jars for everything, both at home and on the go. These would definitely make packing snacks and drinking smoothies easier.

  • My daughter is starting a new job next week and wants a new lunch box. BNTO would be perfect! I will suggest the fruit and nuts option. THX

  • For the Hubbie’s lunch! Chips and salsa. Peanut butter and apple slices. And coffee to go for me.

  • We haven’t eaten a single meal “out” in over 6 years, these would make packing lunches, drinks and snacks, so much easier! Mason jars are king in our house, from canning, drinking, packing foods and even baking desserts. This would make life a little more simple, for us!

  • would love a cuppow for the days I’m running late and have to grab my breakfast to go, but can’t get the lid off my stupid, leaky, hand wash only go cup (um, yesterday) and a bnto for lunches – hummus and carrots, apples and peanut butter, yogurt and granola…..I can never find the right plastic lid, but I’ve always got mason jars.

  • The bnto would be perfect for the many road trips I take during the warmer months! I would load the jar with veggies like celery and carrots and then the bnto would get hummus or PB. I think my husband would love one with greek yogurt and granola too!

  • With a BNTO, I’d store stinky cheese in one half and your amazing adaptable plum chutney in the other, to take on hikes w/ some crusty bread. Forget trail mix! ;p

  • I’d use the lid during the summer for drinking iced coffee and I’d use the BNTO for carrying salads to work.

  • I like crunchies in my soups (nuts, croutons, scallions, etc.) and would definitely use the BNTO for that. Also, I work in an office that has jars instead of drinking glasses so the cuppow would get daily use.

  • these would greatly reduce the amount of jars i bring to work for lunch and snacks. Even if I don’t win, I think I’m going to have get some.

  • My husband and I both have health issues that require us to be careful what we eat. Make leaving home challenging some times and how to pack everything is always a puzzle. These Cuppow lids and BNTO adapters would work wonderful for us. Thanks for the chance.

  • These look awesome! I’d use it the same way you do – for a healthy snack on the go. If I don’t have a snack with me at all times, just in case, I panic a little bit. 🙂

  • I love all things mason jar. I would use it for my kiddo. Apple and peanut butter are his faves right now.

  • Each member of my family would be setting a beautiful example everywhere we go with our healthy BNTO snacks jars and Cuppow jars full of delicious homemade drinks. Our Canadian town is too remote to have a community recycle center (yet), so it’s up to us residents to get creative about solutions instead. This Cuppow/BNTO package would make a bold statement on how to reuse!

  • I teach canning classes in Vancouver and always refer to your blog! I’m a big fan of using mason jars for all storage needs and I promote this heavily in my classes and support products that help our environment. From single serving baked cakes, smoothies, toothbrush holder, pendant lights and of course preserving, mason jars are the ultimate versatile vessel! I always receive compliments and queries on where I purchase my mason jar accessories so this would be a great addition!

    Haven’t been able to find a BNTO here in a store yet so would love to try it out, I envision it being perfect to separate salad dressing, dips and crunchy bits. Even a two layered snack would be amazing, that is why I love my Goodbyns too!

  • I work 12 hour shifts so I would use it for snacks, snacks and snacks.
    I need to find a heavier lunch bag with all the glass jars I travel with, any suggestions folks…
    thanks for always sharing the goodies with your followers…

  • I’d put chickpeas and diced celery in the jar and a dressing made of lemon juice, olive oil & parsley in the BNTO. A perfect mid-afternoon snack!

  • I drink water out of quart mason jars and I would LOVE another Cuppow lid so I don’t have to handwash mine every morning.

  • I would do a much better job at staying hydrated if I could carry a mason jar and Cuppow lid with me…I feel so guilty about using disposables that I often skip drinking enough, much to my detriment.

  • We (2 adults, 3 kids) love our cuppow lids and use jars for food transport often- a bento top would be super handy!!!

  • I am newly pregnant and I would put the cuppow into use immediately for bringing healthy snacks to work in a convenient container!

  • Woot! One that’s open to Canadians!

    I would use the BNTO for trips to the park with my daughter, and the Cuppow for carrying cool drinks with me during the summer, since I already have a sturdy metal thermos that’s great with coffee.

  • I would give them to some members of my moms group, Holistic Moms Network. They would come up with some great uses, like kids snacks on the go and first dippy cups.

  • I’d use the lid for my new fermentation projects of water kefir! The BNTO I’d use to bring salads to work in a quart jar.

  • I’m making an effort to drink more of my good homemade teas and drinks. Not sure what I’d use the BNTO for but it sounds interesting.

  • I love the BNTO for holding dressing and other wet ingredients to my lunch salads. You can’t have too many! Cuppow lids are awesome for cold drinks in the car and at work.

  • As you mentioned this would be great to avoid eating lousy things in my day at work. I’d use it to bring nutritious foods to work with me instead!

  • I make and deliver dinner to my 92 year old aunt who lives alone. This would be a great vessel to transport her meals in.

  • I’m a yoga teacher and have a lot of classes. I’d love to have a bnto to organize snacks. It be a great way to help keep me going!

  • I drink water out of a pint and a half jar everyday. I would love to try a cuppow lid to try! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  • I have used the cuppow and would be stoked to try the BNTO. I would fill them with snacks for me and my little one as we’re out and about.

  • I’d love the BNTO to take on the road while I’m busy running errands, or just to prepare the night before for a snack at home. What a neat idea!!

  • I bring my lemon ginger tea in a mason jar to work each morning. the Cuppow would allow me to drink away without as much heat escaping! The BNTO is such a cool idea- I’d use that for oatmeal or yogurt and put toppings in the top portion until I’m ready to eat it so they don’t get soggy.

  • I’ll be starting a new job in a couple of weeks. I’d love to have a cuppow lid or bnto divider to get me into the habit of healthy snacking/tea drinking right off the bat!

  • Another great giveaway! I’d use the BNTO adapter to take snacks with me when I’m out and about. Granola to top some yogurt or hummus for carrots…yum!

  • In the BNTO I’d put my homemade granola, with diced fruit & plain yogurt in the bottom of the glass jar. That’s one of my absolute favorite breakfasts.

  • I’m trying to eat more healthier lunch options and taking my lunch to work every day is the only option. I just found out about DIY Instant Noodles from Serious Eats and I’ve always loved Salad in a Jar, so these Cuppow items would be absolutely perfect for me!
    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  • I’ve been really wanting to try the Bento! I take my lunch (and sometimes dinner) every day, and I usually have crunchy/wet components that end up becoming mush or I have to take tons of tiny jars. The Bento seems like it would really solve this problem. 🙂

  • I have a dip and celery stick addiction. This would be so convenient to stash in my bag for work for a mid morning snack! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  • I love both the lids and the BNTO’s!
    The BNTO’s allow me to send a healthy lunch for my wife, greens on the bottom and the separated cup lets me portion out her dressing in a cost effective way, no wasted plastics from the throw away salad dressing packets!

  • In the morning, I make and bring a green smoothie to work for breakfast. In the afternoon, I am a courier and in the car for several hours so I bring lemon water. That’s how I would use the lids.

  • I’d use the BNTO to pack my current favorite snack, carrot sticks with spicy mayo dip. The Cuppow I’d probably use for coffee.

  • I take my lunch to work every day, and I’m also always trying to drink more water. The Cuppow And Bnto adapters would be great for work!
