In case you've been living under a rock, or maybe on another planet, let us clue you in: People love Mason jars.
No, like really. People love these jars that have been used for over 130 years for everything from canning to wedding decor. Now, just in time for spring 2017, they are getting a new look.
As part of the Collection Elite Design Series, the new jars have a spiraled side design. There are also four-ounce mini jars released in the classic, straight-sided design.
In a press release, Matt Christensen, Director of Fresh Preserving at Newell Brands says, "While more than half of Americans have at least one Mason jar in their homes, these new introductions will excite our core canning users as well as shoppers who are looking for new and creative ways to put their twist on Mason jar crafts and decor."
Mason jars can be used for a lot of things.
They are awesome storage containers.
They make a mean cocktail shaker (bonus: you can put a lid on it and take it with you if you're going to the alcohol-allowed roof of your building).
They're perfect for layering salads.
They make adorable trifle-y cake desserts.
They're the ideal vessel for your desk ramen lunches.
They're great for any number of home decor ideas (they make nifty vases).
And, of course, they're good for actually canning and preserving items, like they were originally intended for.
Are you totally obsessed with your Mason Jars? If so, will you be swayed by these swivel-y new designs or will you stay loyal to the traditional model?
