In case you haven’t noticed, for the past few years you’ve been drinking out of mason jars. You’ve also been eating cake out of mason jars and grabbing pickled daikons out of mason jars. 

And today, I pumped soap onto my hand from a mason jar. With that act of uber retro, hipster, farmhouse-ness, I declare the mass utilization of the mason jar dead. Thank you, FOODE, for ending the insanity of the humble little mason jar, may you now return to your regularly scheduled duties of keeping tomato sauce fresh for months.

I like Mason jars. They are very useful for all sorts of things besides tomato sauce.

I hear you. I think they can be used to store things. But I’m over drinking out of them. The awkward shape. All the ridges. It’s just too much.
