Let's not get into what, exactly, you're drinking out of a jar. Maybe it's iced tea, coffee or juice—or something a bit stronger.
Regardless, jars as drinking vessels have become somewhat of a thing (although it's a trend that seems to be too hipster for Zagat.)
Now, a new product that's been developed in Somerville has recently been making the rounds on social media (thanks to an alert Somerville Patch reader for pointing it out).
The product is called Cuppow, and it converts your run-of-the-mill canning jar into a sippy cup of sorts.
The product looks kind of like the top from a take-away coffee cup (the kind you get at Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks), and it fastens securely into place on a canning jar, allowing you to drink out of the jar without dribbling red punch down your front or, worse, spilling it all over your girlfriend's beige sweater at a Super Bowl party.
Cuppow was developed at Fringe in Somerville, a workspace where people collaborate and create intriguing stuff.
Cuppow has recently made the rounds on Facebook.
Perhaps Somerville Patch will check in with Cuppow's creators soon.
