The Mason Jar Glass

by Anne Paddock

There are numerous styles of Mason Jar Glasses on the market but the Carson Home Accents Mason Jar Glasses are distinguishable from others in several ways. First, the glass comes in two sizes:  16 ounces (The Sipper) and 32 ounces (The Guzzler). Second, the metal lid has a cushioned hole in the center to fit the reusable acrylic straw (or any type of straw). Third, the glass has no handle so the jar is gripped with the hand making it easy to hold and a space saver in cabinets; and finally, the glasses are dishwasher safe and made in the USA – not that I have anything against China or other countries but I prefer to buy American made products whenever possible.

Sturdy, innovative, and useful for smoothies and cold drinks that use a straw, the clear Mason Jar Glass also makes a colorful smoothie, lemonade, or ice tea look thirst quenching and appetizing from the outside.

The mason jar glasses are part of the Original RedNek Collection of glasses offered through Carson Home Accents. But the most innovative characteristic of the glass is the center straw hole that is cushioned with a round piece of rubber to ensure the straw stays in place – something that most other drinking glasses don’t have.

Red-Neck-GuzzlerTo purchase the Mason Jar Glasses, go to www.amazon.com where the 16-ounce mason jar glasses are sold in 2-packs for about $16 including shipping for Prime members.
