Cuppow for Me, Cuppow For You

April 9th, 2013 | Posted by Alison Spath in Healthy Habits

Have you heard of Cuppow?


It’s a drinkable lid that you can use with a canning jar.

(I think I’ve made it obvious that we like to drink out of canning jars here?)

I love canning jars as glasses mostly because they’re so sturdy – when the girls were really little I was frustrated with how frequently regular glasses were breaking.  I soon noticed that the few small and wide mouth canning jars we had hanging around were the only glasses that were holding up.  I eventually stopped replacing our broken glasses altogether and just used canning jars and old almond butter jars instead.  Soon, our entire glasswear collection consisted of glasses with threading at the top.  Oops.

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of Kaz’s green mustache after his sampling of a little green lemonade.  A friend then left a comment asking me if I knew about Cuppow – a sippy lid for canning jars.   I hadn’t heard of Cuppow, but I checked it out and I love the concept.  A sippy lid to use on glasses we already have!  It fits perfectly under the ring for the jar.  It’s small and durable, reusable and dishwasher safe – and I LOVE that this is going to save us from the clutter of a million plastic sippy cups.  (Been there, done that.)  Our once-little-now-bigger girls love drinking out of this too, and it makes a great travel cup kids and adults alike.

We were gifted our first Cuppow by a very sweet friend a few days ago, so we gave it a try!

Cuppow Lid

Celery, pear, ginger and lime juice (with cucumber this time too) is my new favorite juice combo.  The celery has this slight “salty” flavor to it – I really like it.  And it was the perfect juice to take our new Cuppow lid for a spin.

Juice for me and a little for Kaz today too.

One for Baby

He knew exactly what to do with it!  Amazing!  Or maybe he just puts EVERYTHING into his mouth – food, Cuppow or otherwise.

He Knows What To Do

For what it’s worth, whenever I say “Cuppow”, I have this urge to put a strong emphasis on the “pow” part of the name – like, CupPOW!  And then I imagine doing a right uppercut to the chin of whomever is standing nearest to me.

Cuppow.  Kah POW!  Maybe that’s what they were getting at when they decided on a name?  I’m fast like that.

(No, I did not give my baby an uppercut to the chin before I offered him some Celery Pear Lime and Ginger juice.)


The opening in the lid is a little big for my 9 month old guy as a relative newbie to drinking from a cup.  Liquid comes out sort of fast for him right now – but he’ll obviously get the hang of it with time.  The girls think Cuppow is totally fun to drink from and I can see using the widemouth lid for myself or Zak to take a drink along on the go.

I wrote this post because I am truly excited about this product.  I couldn’t wait to spread the word to my other canning jar drinking friends in this world – I know we’re not the only ones out there drinking from glass jars!  This is also great for those of you who prefer to avoid eating and drinking from plastic whenever you can – Cuppow can be an affordable way to make it really easy to take glass with you on the go.

But if I’m going to tell you about it, it’s way more fun to spread the Cuppow love while I’m at it.  I emailed the good people at Cuppow to find out if they’d help me do a giveaway along with my post – and Cuppow very generously offered to give away two of their lids (one regular mouth and one wide mouth) to TWO READERS!

Wanna play?  Leave a comment telling me a.) why you drink out of canning jars OR b.) that you don’t currently drink out of a canning jar, but this lid makes it look totally fun and now you want to try it!

This giveaway is now closed as of April 12, 2013, 7:42 AM EDT.  Thanks to everyone for playing – a big CUPPOW! congrats to:

    I have always enjoyed using mason jar because it reminds me of canning with my family. I have many fond memories of helping my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother make jams. Also, glass is one of the only inert materials available for kitchenware. Cuppow allows me to use mason jars for on the go and will not spill as easy as an open jar in the car. I love finding new ways to use mason jars everyday. I also have liked cuppow on Facebook and follow on twitter.

    Thanks and i hope i win!

  • Kathi says:

    A huge Cuppow fan and give the as gifts! Mason jars are awesome… Love glass, holds a lot, vintage feel, upcyclin!, especially now that Cuppow is on the scene. The perfect solution!

  • Alex says:

    We use mason jars for…. tea, smoothies, hotchochocolate, coffee, soup and the list goes on- We dont like to drink out of plastic for obvious reasons…. so the cupow would work for us really well- along with the white lids that fit mason jars- (no holes)
    thanks Alex

  • Jeannie says:

    I do not drink out of glass yet, but I saw these lids at a party six weeks ago and fell in love. Now I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a mason jar with a handle so that I can have my very own “mommy” cup (with Cuppow of course).

  • Megan La Pier says:

    I follow cuppow on Instagram and Facebook! A friend got me one and I love it. I use it for my coffee with a homemade cozy and it feels like I have the most stylish mason jar ever. I love mason jars for my two year old, never had one break!

  • Mei says:

    I drink out of mason jars because they’re bigger than the glasses I have at home. I don’t really take drinks other than water on the go yet, but I might start.

    I’ve recently made a commitment to switch from coffee to tea as my morning pick me up. I’ve found that mason jars are the perfect container for brewing fridge tea. Just leave some teabags in a jar of water in the fridge overnight, and I have a quart of tea to take with me in the morning as I head off to catch my bus downtown. Having a cuppow would be just that much more convenient so I wouldn’t have to constantly screw the lid on and off when I feel like taking a sip.

    I currently follow cuppow on FB and Twitter.

    Thanks ^^

    I liked cuppow on Facebook, and followed on twitter and instagram.

    I drink out of my mason jars because everything seems to taste better in them.

  • Hannah says:

    I drink out of canning jars because my mother and I made jam once and the unused jars got immediately assimilated into the cabinet. The jars we did use were assimilated once the jam was eaten. Plus, keeping them around as glasses means that I always have jars when I want to can something. Cuppow is awesome because you can bring your beverage along with the canning lid assembled and then switch out the plate part of the lid for the Cuppow. You can’t rely on normal travel cups to not spill inside a purse or backpack.

    I follow on Twitter and “like” in Facebook.

  • Adam says:

    I’ve only drank out of canning jars at übercool restaurants before, but a new Cuppow would make it irresistible at home! I’m thinking maybe iced coffee or tea would be a staple, with warmer weather approaching and all. Thanks for the chance to win!

    PS – I like cuppow on Facebook (Adam Proehl), and I follow cuppow on instagram (buddhadam)!

  • Kaz makes the cuppow look totally fun and yummy, in a drooly-baby-kind-of-way. Yes I drink out of canning jars. No I have never tried a cuppow. Yes, I totally will try one, especially if I win one for free. Yay for giveaways!

  • Just followed cuppow on Twitter and liked them on FB. Social media rocks!

  • Shannon Bradley says:

    I drink out of canning jars because they’re cute, and convenient! It’s so much more fun to drink out of a cute cup/mug, and canning jars easily hold your hot or cold beverage! Would love to win these 2 Cuppow lids!

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win!

  • Sheena says:

    I like Cuppow on Facebook, which is how I found out about this blog/contest. I love drinking out of Jars because it saves cupboard space. As an avid “Canner” the jars just seem to build up between seasons, if I just put them in the cup cupboard after cleaning them, then I get them out of the way. I am currently looking for a good Blender that fits on my Jars for just this reason, skipping cleaning steps is always a win for me. Now to knit up a nice cozy for my jars for when I do Hot Drinks on the Go.

  • Marla says:

    I don’t drink my green juice out of a canning jar, but I’ve been a fan of Cuppow’s product for a while and just haven’t had a chance to try it yet. Maybe today will be my lucky day!

    I really like Cuppow. I think they are just cool, like that they are a U.S. company that uses other U.S. companies for their suppliers, and like them on FB.

    I drink out of large 1L jars because they are nice and large! I also love that a can always hold the jars, even when my arthritis acts up :)

  • Joanna Bell says:

    Liked Cuppow on facebook as well :)

  • Jean says:

    You have seen re-caps too yes?

  • jen says:

    is that flip-able to make a recessed cup for adults? hehe I know it’s closed I”m just curious and catching up on my reads… I would drink out of canning jars.. there was a time before we met that i DID, but people talked me out of it. Then I discovered pint glasses, which aren’t as sturdy but I like the size and shape adn even though we don’t drink beer we have a ton with cool labels and logos (and some not even beer related) We have way too many so I don’t foresee a problem in that dept like, ever.. but if that ever happens I am so buying a crate of jars!

  • crystal says:

    My cupboard is full of canning jars, its all we drink out of! I love them! I have snacks on the table in jars, flowers in jars, pencils in jars, everything! Im the “jar lady” I saved up to buy my first cuppow recently and LOVE it! however, my 3 year old has taken it over. I would love another one(and I mean, REALLY love it!) I just can’t afford one, I miss being able to take my coffee to work since my daughter took over my one and only cuppow. Pick me! Pick me!!
