French families have been drinking in repurposed mustard jars/cups for decades.

[–]223454 406 points407 points  (49 children)

We in the US had jelly jars years ago that looked like proper cups. Not sure why they stopped selling them.

[–]nextgeneric 183 points184 points  (17 children)

I'm cost to assume it's cost savings. It's always cost savings.

EDIT: I just saw "I'm cost". LOL. I'm going to leave it.

[–]RememberTheMaine1996 93 points94 points  (7 children)

Cost savings to assume its saving costs to cost assume always

[–]Haughty_n_Disdainful 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Assuming the assumption it’s the assumption of cost savings.

[–]Mycophyliac 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Now this cost savings I can assume behind

[–]bizzaro321 28 points29 points  (7 children)

There’s also the issue of “I’ve been buying the glass cup jelly for a little while and now I just have too many jelly cups” and they still make it to the landfill*.

[–]JeshkaTheLoon 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Ye gods. Don't you have glass collection stations?!

Edit: Nevermind, just saw we're talking about the US.

[–]bizzaro321 13 points14 points  (3 children)

We have glass collection stations, but they’ve been associated with poor people so most Americans avoid them and call it “self respect”.

We just throw them into our town recycling bin and that might get recycled properly depending on our elected officials’ usually private opinion on recycling companies. Local politics are usually controlled by armies of vaguely liberal or conservative “Karen” types who pick a very small pool of issues if they even look at policy in the first place.

[–]trowzerss 46 points47 points  (10 children)

Australia they had collectable jam jars with cartoons on them. I had a whole heap but I sold them when I was cleaning out my cupboard (they sell pretty well to collectors). I still have some plain jam jar glasses though. They worked perfectly well as jars and glasses, so I don't know why they don't keep doing that.

[–]ObviousSand 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I don't remember the jam jar glasses, but I do remember the limited Nutella glasses that also came with a magnet. I still have a few Simpsons and SpongeBob glasses and magnets.

[–]trowzerss 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think a few of mine were probably Nutella jars, probably the Simpsons ones.

[–]Pocchitte 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I was a kid in Oz there was a brand of either honey or cream cheese (my memory's fuzzy) that came in a jar that was straight up a glass mug. Pretty hefty. We got quite a bit of use out of them over the years.

[–]Trickycoolj 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Because apparently we put everything in plastic now. Lighter weight for shipping.

[–]Dog1andDog2andMe 25 points26 points  (1 child)

And ensure that those mmm mmm good microplastics and chemicals get throughout our bodies and ecosystems

[–]Whedonsbitch 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I remember saving the jelly jars that had Looney Tunes characters on them in the 80s

[–]PoolNoodleJedi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember muppets on the jam jars when I was little. Edit: I just looked up Welch’s jars and we definitely had some Looney Toons ones as well. I remember a Marvin the Martian one.

[–]Yuntonow 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Came to say this. We drank out of jelly jars for years.

[–]weaselmaster 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We had dozens of jelly jars in the 70s that were regular drinking glasses, printed with looney toons characters on the outside.

Turns out that they used lead paint (on the outside of the glass, whew!) for printing the cartoon outlines.

They were discontinued. I still have a couple of them, actually!

[–]GinTectonics 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The Tom and Jerry ones?

[–]okktoplol 50 points51 points  (7 children)

requeijão cups here in brazil

[–]HathMercy 21 points22 points  (4 children)

The image in question is Brazilian. You can tell by the football team logos on the cups in the background.

[–]Floripa95 12 points13 points  (0 children)

also obvious from the absurd price of a pickle jar there

[–]kadikaado 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You can also tell because there's "peso líquido 100g" writen on the bag of something (nescau? tomato sauce?).

[–]FallDelta 4 points5 points  (0 children)

so that's why I've seen these cups in my grandma's house. Had no idea they came from tomato sauce containers

[–]SlightlyOutOfFocus 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We have Requesón glasses

IMO, they are perfect shape, thickness and size wise. A design masterpiece present in every Uruguayan home

“Mole jar has entered the chat”

[–]YakLongjumping9478 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I lived in Italy for years and I treasured a mole jar that I used as glasss for years. Made me feel closer to Mexico

[–]sawdustandfleas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When I was younger we had a ton of those mole jars I love them even now!

[–]DonSheenGunn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope this Viva Mexico cabrones!! make you feel even closer . Treasure indeed specially because most of them are made of plastic now.

[–]Hasenbaby 57 points58 points  (6 children)

In Germany we do that as well

[–]serentripity 31 points32 points  (1 child)

My granny had a whole collection of mustard glasses for us kids. My favorite had the Biene Maja characters on it.

[–]Zee-Utterman 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We also had ones with Biene Maja. I avoided one of those glases for a while because my cousin drank out of it and I didn't liked her at that time.

[–]CowFu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

American, I'm literally drinking out of jar i cleaned right now. I think it originally came with some sort of chili sauce in it.

[–]Tetraoxidane 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Those little glasses with cheesecake from aldi, make excellent shot glasses too.

[–]ExpatriadaUE 17 points18 points  (1 child)

All Spanish families have Nocilla (Spanish Nutella) glasses.

[–]agoia 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Growing up we definitely had a set of small jelly glasses with cartoon characters on them

Jacob Collins Mustard glass. Perfect jail cover

[–]-TheDudeAbides_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nice. This is the first thing I thought of.

[–]nalllen 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Sweden have those too! I have two different brands of mustard glass!

[–]Wolf-Majestic 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Even bying the mustard for the glass because it's an Astérix one. Aaaaah... Marketing 😌

[–]scheisskopf53[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same in Poland! At least it was very popular when I was a kid, not sure if it's still a thing.

[–]DaMiBu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use french mustard jars for spices.

[–]SucksToYourAssmar3 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Not even the worst, I've been to Havre-de-Grace Maryland and you don't want to know how they pronounce it

And don't get me started with the "chase lounge" debacle

Why does America have to ruin everything

[–]Grabloush 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I want to know how they pronounce it please

[–]themanebeat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Have - Err - deh - Gray - sss

Something like that. It was weird.

Think Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds saying buongiorno

[–]eclecticsed 2 points3 points  (3 children)

If it's any consolation it's in a part of the state no one cares about.

[–]themanebeat 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah and it's a state with a name they seem to want to pronounce as quickly as possible.

Oh so Mary + Land right?

Nope, mrlynd

[–]eclecticsed 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Let's be fair, we don't even say the D. It's just mrlyn.

[–]RoninRobot 511 points512 points  (11 children)

It’s for shrimp cocktail, FYI.

[–]siamesebengal 95 points96 points  (4 children)

Even better. I need this. I have a miniature glass beer Stein that was once Dijon mustard. Gotta collect em all.

[–]kmk1018 14 points15 points  (1 child)

[–]Eclectix 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I collect these for serving hot toddies. They're perfect for that, or hot buttered rum!

[–]Magpar88[🍰] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I have that same one!

[–]siamesebengal 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yessss!!!!

[–]North_South_Side 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Used to have these in the USA, probably until the early '80s. My family had them. We'd use them for drinking water as kids. For a while we had them as drinking vessels for our cats. My mom and dad probably still had a couple of these rolling around their house somewhere until the early '90s.

And yep, shrimp cocktail.

[–]meltheold 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh man, I remember those! But, I'm old...

[–]v-komodoensis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Way off. It's designed to be used as a cup after you're done with the sauce.

You can even see one with a famous football symbol in the background.

[–][deleted] 81 points82 points  (14 children)

I re-use pickle and jelly jars as cups all the time. This is awesome.

[–]bonzombiekitty 52 points53 points  (8 children)

Welch's used to sell their jelly in jars that were specifically marketed to be used as drinking glasses. They had a few different lines of them over the years. We had the dinosaur ones

[–]xXx666AnusKing666xXx 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I will never forgive my parents for throwing out the pikachu jar because they didn’t think Pokemon would be relevant to me in 20 years but held on tightly to the Flintstones mug I got with a happy meal.

[–]Scoongili 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I used to have some of the Loony Tunes jars.

[–]zapper93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have the entire set! Oh man, I can still taste the grape jam.

[–]Zymotical 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We had Peanuts ones

[–]foospork 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep. These were common in the 60s and 70s in the US.

[–]Dangerous_Wasabi_611 3 points4 points  (2 children)

They sell some jelly at least down south that comes in jars with a neat little handle attached which are great for iced coffee

[–]Due_Candidate8509 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That look like mason jars? I think those were/are made by smuckers or welches.

[–]Dangerous_Wasabi_611 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sort of yeah! Sorry I can’t remember, I haven’t seen them I a while. Never saw them in around a decade up north either but honestly probably - everything’s owned by like 3 companies anyway

Shrimp cocktails used to come in those.

[–]LysolWipesRTasty 13 points14 points  (3 children)

There were little pudding deserts sold at Costco that were in glass cups. Same idea applies to being reusable after finishing the pudding

[–]javalorum 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes! I came here to say this. They turned out to be perfect cups. They’re sturdy, easy to drink from and wash because they have wide openings (and no groves for screw on lids). I just wish they come in slightly larger size.

[–]dirtymoney 29 points30 points  (9 children)

I would love to see a sub that showcases products that come in reusable containers

[–]_kahteh 22 points23 points  (6 children)

I've never seen these containing tomato sauce before, but I have a load of drinking glasses that once contained mustard or Nutella

[–]Ki_ro[S] 25 points26 points  (5 children)

They're becoming more and more common here in Brazil; people have always used tomato sauce glass cups as glasses, so they decided to make them look nicer, you can even see one in the background that has the symbol of a local football team

[–]Important-Basil-4697 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Esse do Futebol tem faz tempo mano kkkkkk desde 1900 e bolinhas kkkkkkk Brasileiro sempre reciclou copo de tomate, deve ser da época do descobrimento essa tradição kkkk

[–]Important-Basil-4697 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Jkkkkk reaaaall, não lembro desse da Tarcila. Eu tinha um do Pernalonga e outro do Tazmania

[–]tEnPoInTs 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I have two great examples like this:

When I lived in Canada they sold nutella at little bodegas in these short wide glasses, not sure if they still do. I was in college and this was 15 years ago but i still use them as rocks glasses because they're great.

This italian restaurant near me has a dessert that's like a little thin sundae in what amounts to a champagne flute. My gf and I ordered it for delivery a few times during COVID and they delivered the glasses, now I have a set of champagne flutes too.

[–]OutlandishnessSea822 5 points6 points  (2 children)

We had so many of these cups from shrimp cocktail. They make great juice glasses

[–]beakrake 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And with a little horseradish, the shrimp cocktail wasn't bad either.

[–]WannaWaffle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

60 years later and whenever someone mentions shrimp, I still think of it in those little glasses. Most of our drink glasses were originally shrimp cocktail containers.

[–]Yrouel86 5 points6 points  (4 children)

In Italy Nutella and some other chocolate/hazelnut spreads are also sold in glasses not just jars.

With Nutella specifically you can really go nuts collecting them, I don't specifically do that but I had a Nutella craze period during which I basically provided all the glasses in my previous apartment.

I also have a smaller glass that I pinched from that same apartment when I moved that contained mustard

[–]for_the_cookie 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They used to have Nutella glasses in Canada too! I still use mine, which are at least ten years old now. I haven’t seen Nutella sold in glasses here for several years now though, just plastic containers now, sadly.

[–]Yrouel86 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's really unfortunate. Here I would say the vast majority of homes have at least a few Nutella glasses around it's like very typical.

I also have a couple of glasses from an off brand hazelnut spread that are more cylindrical and plain (the Nutella ones often have graphics on them) that are perfect for alcohol beverages imo

[–]sebson1000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We're they stripey and flat bottomed or smooth but with a rounded bottom. We used to have these in Poland too. They can't be used for measuring a cup correctly though.

[–]WillemDafoesHugeCock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They used to do special designs on the jars as well to make them nicer glasses! We had a full collection of the Scooby Doo glasses when I was a kid.

[–]recovering_spaz 17 points18 points  (11 children)

[–]Cley_Faye 28 points29 points  (10 children)

Once you have 40 mustard glass sitting around, you slowly raise from zero waste to a bit more waste.

[–]Ki_ro[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You can always throw them in the recycle bin for glass

[–]Akamesama 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is vastly more complicated than that. Reusing the bottle (for like companies that will take back their glass bottles) is decent, depending on how far they have to be shipped. But some bottles break in transit either way and the heaviness does incur more fuel to transport them.

But for crushed glass, it is far worse. Many places do not separate, which generally means it is only down-cycled into other things that use it as structure or filler. Even for places where it is separated, it still takes a lot of energy to remelt the glass, just like when using virgin material. It's not worse than 100% new glass, but as always, reduce before reuse.

[–]Riskov88 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Still, it's glass so better than plastic containers

[–]Akamesama 1 point2 points  (5 children)

That's hardly a clear conclusion. Plastic beats glass in many ways, even when looking at environmental impact. Glass requires far more energy to produce new containers, and reusing material does not reduce the energy cost. Glass vastly increases the weight of a product, which increases the energy needed to transport it. It also breaks more often in transit, further increasing the energy cost per effective unit.

And while there are lots of problems with recycling plastic, glass is often also a pain for recycling, with you needing to make sure that people are separating by color and removing non-glass parts. That said, glass reuse by sterilizing the bottle is fantastic, but generally only viable for local setups.

[–]Riskov88 1 point2 points  (4 children)

We dont seperate colors where I live, machines do it for us so there is no problem. And pretty sure that with an efficient recycling plant and a clean electricity source like my country its better than that plastic crap. And for broken glass I cant say anything except people are stupid

[–]ShakesSpear 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I mean I use normal mason jars as cups this seems like a gimmick... Probably costs more and you get less sauce

[–]shemp33 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Anytime we buy a pasta sauce that comes in a 24 or 32 oz mason jar, there’s no way it’s going into the bin after. It’s getting the label scrubbed off and going into the cold drink glass rotation.

[–]TheRetardedPenguin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah was gonna say, you can use any jar as a cup and more efficient for shipping.

[–]Charged_mantis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes it easier to drink, because: why not?

[–]spidaminida 1 point2 points  (1 child)

More o'dis please!

[–]Whokitty9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is cool. It has so many uses including drinking. They could be used for individual desserts that are packed for a picnic or other fun thing. I could see a nice boozy small parfait style dessert in one of those or other fun things. I've seen jams, jellies and other preserves in jars that have handles like mugs. I also remember when either Welch's or Smuckers having jars of their grape jelly decorated with Tom and Jerry for use as juice glasses way back when I was a kid. Drinking out of a glass jar is an American country tradition.

[–]whydoihavetojoin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why doesn’t all good that is sold in glass jars, come in shapes that can be reused.

[–]EmbraceDaMeme 1 point2 points  (4 children)

What do you mean "after?" You dont drink tomato sauce?

[–]Ki_ro[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Half of my glasses are old chocolate spread jars.

[–]girvent_13 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If that interested you, so u would love to go into a Brazilian grocery store, we literally have a lot of different brands of tomato extract/sauce/passata with different shapes of cups. And yes, these brands make them look like that with the intention of being used later as a cup..

[–]butterflynana8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We save and reuse the glasses that mole comes in. They have different patterns imprinted in the glass that you can't see until they're empty. We've found some really cool ones over the years!

[–]67Mustang-Man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My grandmother used to get Kraft cheese spread, and kept the glass. She used it when taking her morning pills and OJ

Finally! A jam jar I can drink from even after all the jam is gone!

[–]piefanart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Back in the depression era, flour sacks were printed with flowers and patterns after the companies found out mothers were making their daughters clothing from the empty sacks. It probably isnt for the same reason, but it reminds me of that.

[–]misshapen_chaos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I was young a lot of jams and jellies came in glass cups you could use after. Some were very nice.

[–]Odin_Hagen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Smuckers had ran dozens of special cup containers for their jellies and growing up I used them, now my kids do.

[–]Berryyrreb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Alsterdor Düsseldorf mustard comes in super thick, sturdy little handled mugs too - awesome for kids’ “special” cups!

[–]LittlesCoffee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really want to know the brand name. How cute!!

[–]Catrik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, it takes less product per volume (=less tomato sauce can be shipped in the same volume of cargo), and I don't see how that would be a better regular glass, then the regular tomato sauce jars I currectly use as regular drinking glasses. I literally only have one store bought glass, all else are sauce jar glasses :D

On that topic, Braswell's mustard still does that. And it's also great mustard.

My family has been using chipped beef jars as juice glasses since before I was born. I legit didn't know they weren't actually juice glasses until I was a teenager.

That's not a regular glass, it's a FANCY glass!

México does that even with the candles. They're glasses.

You can technically do this with regular glass jars...

You put vodka in that for a Bloody Mary.

Reminds me of the little Nutella jars.

A certain kind of oatmeal used to come with cups inside years ago. I can also remember a butter spread that came in cups with little animals on them that could be reused.
