Mason Jar Mania Gone Too Far?!

Share It!

I have taken my fair share of fun-time jabs at the mason jar mania culture.  Pies in a jar.  Cakes in a jar.  Garden in a jar.  Lasagna in a jar.  Texas breeze in a jar.  Jars in a jar.  But now I’m wondering if the culture is jumping the shark with Mason Jar Shot Glasses.

Oh, Fonzie!

I’m unsure what to think about this, but the product info is giving me a bad case of the side-eyes:

Take your drinking back to the good ol’ days with the Mason Jar Moonshine Shot Glasses. Each set includes four (4) mason jar shaped shot glasses. The shot glasses are made of glass and should only be washed by hand to avoid damage. A great gift for “Old Timers” and shot glass collectors alike.

#1: I should have never ever given away the for-the-realz moonshine from my true-blue South Carolinian neighbor to my BIL (that I should mention was in a bona fide mason jar).

#2: Um, the “good ol’ days?!”  Today’s as good as any, baby.

#3: Are we technically classified as an “Old Timer” if we drink moonshine/whiskey/Dr. Pepper from a mason jar shot glass?!

I think it’s safe to say the mason jar culture is not dying off anytime soon (nor my loving pokes).  But, I swear, the gloves will be off if I come home to find a Husband has redone the bathroom with a mason jar toilet.

There are some things, as hard as it may seem to this over-the-top culture, that just do not belong in a mason jar.

  1. Like you I am always on the search for new ideas. Done all the Mason jar things I can. I do like the shot glasses.

  2. Raquel @ Organized Island says

    He he…I love mason jars but I know what you mean when some ideas go a little too far. These are adorable! Found you on the Ducks ‘n a Row party!

    • Mrs. Tucker says

      I do love a good mason jar, just not for some of the crazier applications. Plus, poking good fun is, well, FUN!

  3. Don’t forget the mason jar wine glasses! That was when I started to wonder if we were going too far. Great post. Thanks for sharing! Stop by my Friday’s Five Features this week and link up this post (and others)!

  4. I love the line, “The shot glasses are made of glass.” Duh! But it’s pretty sad if they’re really so fragile they can’t go in the dishwasher–real Mason jars are very sturdy.

    I’m a big fan of glass jars for practically everything, but I actually avoid Mason jars because of the annoying two-part lids. I use old salsa and nut butter jars mostly.

  5. Barb @ A Life in Balance says

    Um, no on the mason jar shot glasses, though I love the blue ones as flower vases.

  6. mason jar mania. insane. i am tired of all these BRAND NEW IDEAS BUT THINGS YOU CAN STORE IN MASON JARS!!! put your salad in a mason jar! put your fruit for your smoothie in a mason jar! it’s better because you CAN SEE IT THROUGH THE GLASS and put a picture on pinterest!!!

    seriously. what the HEY?

    • Mrs. Tucker says

      LOL! You better put your attitude in a mason jar and close it tight, so it’s can’t get out, lady! Bwhahahaa! Love it.

  7. seriously, people. what’s wrong with a GLASS???

    • Mrs. Tucker says

      A glass. Pshhhh. So pedestrian. I think when we see a mason jar storing another mason jar, we know the end is near.

  8. YES, it’s an idea. an idea for WHAT? i’m so confused? how is this BETTER with a mason jar??

    seriously. the madness.

    your site just told me that i am posting comments too quickly. slow down, it said.

  11. Doesn’t Gibs on NCIS serve drinks in Mason Jars, after he’s emptied the stray screws or nails from them of course. LOL They are popular!

    This fun post is featured on this week’s Wonderful Blog Hop….live now!

  12. LOL love your humor! While I am a fan of the simple beauty of Mason jars, I love it even more when a blogger has the courage to call out some of the “talent” that appears on Pinterest in the name of “Mason Jar Crafting!” Desperation at its very best! “Jar-in-a-jar?” Oh, I’m sure that’s out there too! And repinned multiple times!

    • Mrs. Tucker says
